CodeKit vs gulp: What are the differences?
CodeKit belongs to "Live Reloading" category of the tech stack, while gulp can be primarily classified under "JS Build Tools / JS Task Runners".
Some of the features offered by CodeKit are:
- Auto-Refresh Browsers - Refresh browsers across devices: Mac, PC, iOS, Android & kitchen fridge. Never hit command+R again.
- Bower Built-In - Install 6,000+ components with a single click: Bootstrap, jQuery, Modernizr, Zurb Foundation, even WordPress.
On the other hand, gulp provides the following key features:
- By preferring code over configuration, gulp keeps simple things simple and makes complex tasks manageable.
- By harnessing the power of node's streams you get fast builds that don't write intermediary files to disk.
- gulp's strict plugin guidelines assure plugins stay simple and work the way you expect.
"Easy to configure" is the top reason why over 6 developers like CodeKit, while over 454 developers mention "Build speed" as the leading cause for choosing gulp.
gulp is an open source tool with 31.3K GitHub stars and 4.4K GitHub forks. Here's a link to gulp's open source repository on GitHub.
