Babelator is part of the Live Ecosystem :seedling:
Use Drum to create a new Babelator module.
npm i -g drum drum g babelator
npm i -D babelator gulpjs/gulp.git#4.0
Add the following to your
var gulp = require('gulp') require('babelator')(gulp)
You can now use:
npm run gulp <task-name>.
npm run gulp <task-name>
Compile on file change.
npm i npm run gulp watch
TODO: This section should be a print out from running
gulp build - Cleans dist, then compiles
dist. Suitable as npm
prepublish script in
gulp watch - Watches for changes. Compiles
dist on file change. Only compiles changed files. Cleans on first run.
gulp test - Runs tests.
gulp test-transpiled - Runs transpiled tests. Faster.
gulp test-watch - Watches for changes, and compiles + runs transpiled tests.
gulp bootstrap - Boostraps a module. Modifies package.json, etc. Prompts for any file being overwritten.
We want to minimize the time spent waiting for npm installs. You should be able to create a new module and publish to npm super quick.
# `npm link` babelator, gulp 4.0, and babel for quicker installs # NOTE: Gulp 4.0 globally supports 3.x and 4.x local installs. So don't worry about it breaking gulp 3.x projects. git clone https://github.com/vjpr/babelator.git && cd babelator && npm link git clone https://github.com/gulpjs/gulp.git && git checkout -b 4.0 origin/4.0 && cd gulp && npm link git clone https://github.com/babel/babel.git && cd babel && make build && cd packages/babel && npm link # Bootstrap new project cd ~/dev mkdir <new-project-name> babelator # Answer some questions... gulp bootstrap # Answer some questions... gulp watch # or gulp test-watch gulp nodemon # Hack, hack, hack... # Publish to npm/bower and deploy to gh-pages gulp bump gulp publish # npm/bower deploy gulp deploy # gh-pages, etc.
Use local npm module cache. E.g. npm_lazy.
npm i -g npm_lazy npm_lazy --init > ~/npm_lazy.config.js # Now use: npm --registry http://localhost:8080/ install # Or set it as an alias in ~/.bashrc: echo -e "alias npml='npm --registry http://localhost:8080/'" >> ~/.bashrc
If you have a slow startup make sure you put all your requires inside your tasks.
Even though modules are cached on first require, common requires like
may still be loaded twice depending on their version
and when they were installed. So to be safe, task-scope everything.
npm3 will help fix this by deduping.
gulp --require time-require --sorted x to see whats taking so much time.
