Question for you web devs out there.
I'm curious as to what your workflow involves for building and multi device testing? Whether it be grunt/gulp / something else?

    Grunt/gulp has zero to do with multi device testing.

    Chrome dev tools device emulator, and then real devices. If you're starting up, you can buy most things and return them for a refund within 14-28 days. It's OK to get started.

    @nate well that's not true now is it?
    Some of us have multiple devices open with gulp browser sync running on the background 😉

    @nate What are you even talking about? I'm curious to hear your logic, you are aware that there is a browser sync plugin?
    If gulp plugins have nothing to do with gulp, then I suppose the usual sass compiling, minifying, img optimization has nothing to do with gulp either?

    What does your gulpfile contain?

    In general, I'd read up on things before you give answers like that.

    I was specifically asking about workflows in general.

    @nate 2 things.

    1) You've still yet to explain how browsersync has nothing to do with gulp if it happens to be part of the workflow...

    2) What does your typical gulpfile actually do?

    @nate Okay, give me an example of something that **litetally** has to do with gulp?

    I'm willing to learn something new, new devs can always teach something.

    @nate No it's not irrelevant, honey. You're point is all over the damn board.

    Gulp is exclusively built as a toolkit, a JS task runner used in automation.

    Gulp is powerful, but doesn't do a whole lot out of the box. Hence the integrations, nearly anything done in relation to gulp is an integration, or plugin.

    You're essentially telling me that gulp plugins, or integrations, have nothing to do with gulp itself.

    I'm not sure what to think about Dev's that buy devices devices on the regular, just to return them 14-28 days later either.

    @nate Let me put it this way. I'll concede if you can tell me this.

    What is gulp without the plugins/integrations to back it?

    Answer: Your empty gulpfile

    @Rundle I'm don't agree that it is anything. That precisely agrees with my point. You cannot attribute the behaviour of plugins to the 'runner'.

    Thank you for agreeing with me xx

    Nearly 👏 every 👏integration 👏exists 👏outside 👏of👏the👏gulp👏ecosystem.

    Read my rant, I was asking about workflows > Gulp & Grunt are often involved in workflows.

    @nate We've officially gone in circles.

    Please do some research prior to making a point. That way you won't have to back out of said point 15 comments later.

    No, why would that be obvious? You had one specific point that happened to fail miserably. A plugin is a plugin, whether it exists outside of the ecosystem or not. Therefor, can be part of the gulp workflow.

    @nate What an embarrassment.

    @condor , you know when you made that comment the other day about dR turning into Reddit? I think it's happening.

    @Rundle Well if you won't engage in a discussion 🤷 how sad

    I don't know anything about gulp or front-end in general but I'd assume that a Gulpfile is important for configuration? Like how .tmux.conf or .vimrc are too.
    Regarding the bitching back and forth and deviating from the original question, Reddit confirmed indeed.. truly disheartening.

    @Condor I fell for the trap, I apologize.

    @Rundle no need to apologise when your rant was littered by someone who buys devices on the regular just to return them 🤔
    Eh, actually I'm kinda curious about this question as well. Whenever any answers come, please tag me 😊

    @Condor Oh okay! I'll leave it up then, and will tag ya if anyone actually bothers to scroll past all of garbage this and leave a comment.

    Was excited to see all the 'useful' information i thought the 27 comments on this rant contained. Hope someone actually answers the question though. Just started testing and testing on multiple devices is something I have never even though about automating.

    @sadProgrammer Yes!! I was actually hoping to see some on topic responses. Oh well, someone is bound to ask again one day😁
