Searching for best fitting JavaScript task runner for AEM projects

Hi everone 🙂

 

Does anyone have experience with JavaScript task runner like Grunt or Gulp and which is the one getting the most in the AEM6 environment?

From the stuff I've seen Grunt or Gulp fits the most. Both task runner are supporting all plugins we need in our project.

Grunt supports the multitask concept which I haven't seen for Gulp. With this I can make configuration depending on which instance the staff will be deployed. On Gulp I have to create several tasks for that as far as I've seen.
On the other hand Gulp has smaller configuration and doesn't write after each task and is faster because of that.

I am not sure which one is better. Do you have any recommendations?

 

Greetings
Sören

Hi 

I do not see any problem in using Grunt VS Gulp with AEM.

Question is more arounf Grunt VS Gulp, what which is better, the answer to this is it is as per your requirement.

I recently came across a very good community articles "Gulp vs Grunt. Why one? Why the Other?"

AEM has plugins with both of them, choose them as per your need.
