A task runner does much more than just compile Sass into native CSS. In this video, you will learn about the why of using a task runner, like gulp, to automate redundant tasks. It will improve your productivity.
There are plenty of plugins available that you install as a node module which do tasks such as:
- Sass prefixing, gathering up media queries, error checking, and minifying
- Load Bourbon and Neat (and others) as a node module instead of using Bower
- Converting scripts into one minified file plus error checking
- Optimize images, SVG, and sprites
- Run translations
- and more
Who needs copy/paste? Right. Writing code from scratch is fun!
