The version of Gulp we are using is outdated and we have many security-alerts because of this. Updating to v4 would remove some of our security-alerts.

This epic includes:

  • Upgrade to Gulp v4 in our current environment with our current settings and fix where things are breaking (Very useful guide here that covers what is breaking for us: (#3813)
  • Remove run-sequence plugin, not needed for Gulp 4 (#3813)
  • Upgrade Karma to latest version (#3814)
  • Remove jscs and use eslint/prettier instead (would remove some of our vulnerabilities(~½ week) (#3815)
  • Update to Webpack v4 to avoid running into the webpack version we are using becoming outdated.
  • At the same time, look over our configs and use Webpack where we can (for example for dev-server, running Karma, etc etc, we would reduce the number of libraries/plugins we are using and it decouples us from Gulp

Who is it for? Who are the users?

  • Our open source users
  • Ourselves when developing
