Gulp uses a concept called “pipes” to chain together different tasks. Each task takes input, performs a specific operation, and passes the result to the next task in the pipe. This allows for a simple and efficient way to chain multiple tasks together.
Gulp is often used as an alternative to Grunt, another task runner, and it can also be used with other tools such as Webpack, Babel, and TypeScript. It’s beneficial in automating repetitive tasks in development, such as building and deploying code, running tests, and generating documentation.
