    Alright! So, I head over to the Github repository to see if that thing is still active. Last commit on Feb 18th 2021. Sounds maintained. Issue count? 143 at the time I'm writing this. Perhaps I'll run into some of those, but hey: Don't say no until you've tried it, right?

  • Supercharge your CSS with Tailwind
    5 projects | dev.to | 4 Apr 2022
    With the pre-processors, you can shrink your CSS and increase reuse through variables. In almost all working cases, it will be an improvement above vanilla CSS. There are also implementations now, via PostCSS, that add vendor prefixes for you. The major drawback is, of course, that you have to compile your CSS beforehand; usually done via part of your tooling such as Grunt or Gulp.
  • How to replace webpack & babel with Vite on a legacy React Typescript project
    11 projects | dev.to | 25 Mar 2022
    As far as build tools go I remember how popular Grunt was when it was first released, then it was Gulp, and Babel came along to help you add new us features and get them working on older browsers.

    Support this, highly recommend learning SASS https://sass-lang.com/ once you master that checkout Gulp, https://gulpjs.com/ then use them together,
  • Password Protect Static Sites with PageCrypt
    9 projects | dev.to | 2 Feb 2022
    One potential concern with PageCrypt is that it only encrypts an HTML file by default. If you want to encrypt your CSS and JavaScript files, you’ll have to inline them in the HTML file. The same applies to images and any other binary assets; you’ll have to inline them as Data URIs. As with any authentication and authorization solution, you’ll want to determine what’s acceptable for your security requirements. Maybe you’re comfortable with the risk of images leaking but have higher security requirements for your JavaScript. In that case, the HTML page can link to the image files but should contain all your JavaScript. You can use many static site build tools to automate inlining assets in HTML. Webpack, Gulp, or Grunt are just a few that might be useful.
  • State of the Web: Bundlers & Build Tools
    17 projects | dev.to | 23 Jan 2022
    While Browserify was great at bundling scripts together, it was not quite as good at transforming code. Let's say you wanted to compile your CoffeeScript code to JavaScript. You can do this with plain Browserify. However, it is unwieldy and relatively inflexible. To fix this, a new group of tools for the web where born, which focused on running code transforms. These are usually called task runners, and the most popular ones are Grunt and Gulp. Grunt was the first task manager, first released in January of 2012. It allowed for more flexible code transforms when using bundlers like Browserify or without a bundler. However, there were still problems with Grunt, which were solved by Gulp. Gulp is faster, as it uses Node streams instead of temporary files and runs tasks in parallel, as well as allowing for people to use a script instead of a JSON configuration file. This was still not perfect, though, because it was annoying to use two separate tools. This was fixed by Webpack

  • What is the best way of compiling/bundling pug.js for a static site these days?

    For the longest time I've used gulp to handle bundling and compiling my projects but was starting to consider moving to a different bundler that is maintained/supported better these days.

What are some alternatives?

When comparing Brunch and gulp you can also consider the following projects:

parcel - The zero configuration build tool for the web. 📦🚀

Rollup - Next-generation ES module bundler

webpack - A bundler for javascript and friends. Packs many modules into a few bundled assets. Code Splitting allows for loading parts of the application on demand. Through "loaders", modules can be CommonJs, AMD, ES6 modules, CSS, Images, JSON, Coffeescript, LESS, ... and your custom stuff.

Snowpack - ESM-powered frontend build tool. Instant, lightweight, unbundled development. ✌️ [Moved to: https://github.com/FredKSchott/snowpack]

grunt - Grunt: The JavaScript Task Runner

Broccoli - Browser compilation library – an asset pipeline for applications that run in the browser

FuseBox - A blazing fast js bundler/loader with a comprehensive API :fire:

pkg - Package your Node.js project into an executable

webpack-dashboard - A CLI dashboard for webpack dev server
