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:
- Give Grunt the Boot! A Guide to Using npm as a Build Tool
- How to Use npm as a Build Tool
- Why I Left Gulp and Grunt for npm Scripts
- Introduction to npm as a Build Tool
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.
