Getting Started

1. Install gulp globally:

If you have previously installed a version of gulp globally, please run npm rm --global gulp to make sure your old version doesn't collide with gulp-cli.

$ npm install --global gulp-cli

2. Initialize your project directory:

$ npm init

3. Install gulp in your project devDependencies:

$ npm install --save-dev gulp

4. Create a gulpfile.js at the root of your project:

var gulp = require('gulp');

gulp.task('default', function() {
  // place code for your default task here
});

5. Run gulp:

$ gulp

The default task will run and do nothing.

To run individual tasks, use gulp <task> <othertask>.

Where do I go now?

You have an empty gulpfile and everything is installed. How do you REALLY get started? Check out the recipes and the list of articles for more information.

.src, .watch, .dest, CLI args - How do I use these things?

For API specific documentation you can check out the documentation for that.
