A great suite of tools is needed to minimize the time spent on tedious non-coding tasks. Gulp is a build system that lets developers run a multitude of file transforming processes with a single click. And with so many libraries working together, a dependency manager such as Bower can keep track of versions, notify of conflicts, and in some cases even fix them. Finally, a scaffolding tool like Yeoman lets developers create applications and modules with just a single command. These tools allow for an efficient workflow that speeds up the time it takes to get applications running and deployed. Front-End Tooling with Gulp, Bower, and Yeoman shows how to use and combine these popular tools to set up a customized development workflow from start to finish. Starting with the big picture of the development process, it explains how these tools mesh together, and using patterns and examples, it teaches how to use each tool. The second half of the book dives deeper and explains how to integrate and extend these tools even more in the development process. By the end of this book, readers will be skilled at using Gulp, Bower, and Yeoman and combining them to create a powerful, tailored workflow for themselves and their teams. Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.
