The gulp logo on a red background

How I learned to stop worrying and love task runners

Comments (0)

A year ago I wrote an article on how I didn’t see the point in tools like Gulp and Grunt. One year later and I have to admit, the old me was an idiot. So what changed your mind? In the last paragraph of the aforementioned article, I wrote: If I’m being honest, Codekit will […]

As you’ve probably noticed, if you’ve been here before. I’ve updated the theme! I finally got around to making a completely customised one based on the ‘sandbox‘ template. It’s not 100% perfect yet, the comments still look a bit crap, the images on the home page are square for some reason and there are a […]
