๐ŸŽฏ WPGulp Version 2

Ahmad AwaisAhmad Awais
๐Ÿ™Œ Howdy! This piece is a part of my 2018 Year in Review (read the context) โ†’

Back in the day, I started automating my WordPress development workflow. Everyone was using Grunt at the time and I never really liked it, so I opted for Gulp. Wrote a post, that went viral, so I open source my workflow under the codename WPGulp.

Wpgulp

For several years WPGulp has served as the most popular WP theme/plugin development automation framework. In 2018, with the help of awesome contributors, I released a huge update in the form of version 2 for WPGulp. One thing led to another and there were 12 new version updates last year.

    Ahmad – I just went over to Github and check your WPGulp. It is a great companion for WP build. I want to include Bootstrap into workflow. Please let me know how to do it correctly from npm package without manually drop files into assets folder.

    I second Don’s question. I have been searching how to efficiently bundle external js like bootstrap and font awesome, without having to enqueue them.
