This is part of our Gulp Sips series: bringing you easily-digestible bits of information on our advanced or unknown features.

A Standalone CLI

But why?

We were also able to version separately from the main package, allowing for features and bug fixes without impacting your workflow. Many of those features will be topics of upcoming Sips, including adding custom metadata to tasks and utilizing configuration files.

Use it now!

gulp -v

Ideal results of gulp -v

If you don’t see CLI Version 1.x (as shown above), remove your old installation by running:

npm rm --global gulp

Now, you can install the standalone CLI using:

npm install --global gulp-cli

Run gulp -v again. Everything should match the screenshot above.

gulpjs
