First of all: Thank you!

I’ve gathered most of my information through social networks like Twitter, Medium or various blogs and magazines. Instead of just showing you a list of examples, I’d also like to suggest typing something like “npm as build tool” into Google.

What you’ll receive are hundreds of very recent articles pointing out npm as a great solution for building code instead of using something like Gulp or Grunt. Some of the most popular one are:

If you ask me, the whole thing recently converted into something like a new trend. So I wanted to shed some light onto how we’ve come here and why it’s not necessarily the best solution.

Like what you read? Give Leo Lamprecht a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
