If you've never used Node or npm before, you'll need to install Node.

Install Gulp Globally

Gulp must be installed globally in order to use the command line tools. You may need to use sudo

npm install -g gulp

Install npm dependencies

npm install

This runs through all dependencies listed in package.json and downloads them to a node_modules folder in your project directory.

Run gulp and be amazed.


This will create and run the task defined in gulpfile.js.
