About the Book

Gulp has been a real treat to work with and I want to share the ease of which you can use it to quickly create an awesome build.

We are going to be using gulp to build a static content generation site like Jeykll. Obviously it will not be super feature rich, but the basics will be mapped out.

By the end we will have a build script that will run on file change, the content for the pages will be converted from markdown files, and we will have a preview web server that will live reload with these changes.
