The Final Bell:

  • Drupal 101: Theming Drupal 7 with gulp

    • By Chen Hui Jing
    • “In a nutshell, when we do front-end development, there are certain actions or tasks that we do repeatedly. Like the aforementioned furious browser-reloading. Sometimes, we also use Sass, which needs to be compiled. When we write Javascript, best practice implores us to concatenate and minify our scripts (for production). Lots of stuff to take care of. Rather than have to do all that manually, task-runners like Grunt and gulp can do them automatically whenever we save our working files. So that’s what everyone is talking about when they say automating your workflow.”
