Wheelie isn't a task runner, a build system or a Gulp wrapper. It's just a common interface to your Gulp tasks so that you can share, re-use and easily update them, improving your automated workflow. It ships out of the box with:

  • A Task model to create custom tasks like you usually do with Gulp. The programmatic interface exposes a configuration callback so that other developers may re-use your task, overriding your defaults.
  • Tasks can be grouped together to create a recipe. Your frontend toolchain becomes a list of Gulp tasks and it can be versioned in a different repository. If you publish your recipe into npm, you can update your projects' toolchain with just a change in the project's package.json.
  • Nothing less that Gulp already offers you. Wheelie takes care about the Gulp configuration and it returns a gulp instance, configured as described in a recipe.
  • Wheelie is fast and without overhead; the Gulp configuration happens only once for each run.
