gulp CLI docs
gulp has very few flags to know about. All other flags are for tasks to use if needed.
--versionwill display the global and local gulp versions
--require <module path>will require a module before running the gulpfile. This is useful for transpilers but also has other applications. You can use multiple
--gulpfile <gulpfile path>will manually set path of gulpfile. Useful if you have multiple gulpfiles. This will set the CWD to the gulpfile directory as well
--cwd <dir path>will manually set the CWD. The search for the gulpfile, as well as the relativity of all requires will be from here
--taskswill display the task dependency tree for the loaded gulpfile
--tasks-simplewill display a plaintext list of tasks for the loaded gulpfile
--colorwill force gulp and gulp plugins to display colors even when no color support is detected
--no-colorwill force gulp and gulp plugins to not display colors even when color support is detected
--silentwill disable all gulp logging
The CLI adds process.env.INIT_CWD which is the original cwd it was launched from.
Task specific flags
Refer to this StackOverflow link for how to add task specific flags
Tasks can be executed by running
gulp <task> <othertask>. Just running
gulp will execute the task you registered called
default. If there is no
default task gulp will error.
You can find a list of supported languages at interpret. If you would like to add support for a new language send pull request/open issues there.
