@Nek- I still use gulp as well as systemjs and jspm. jspm/systemjs-builder is replacing some parts of my production deployment tasks, and has replaced a very large chunk of my development workflow (but gulp is still responsible for starting the dev webserver and doing livereload-type stuff)

@dansdans Hum, it's a dependency manager, right ? So you suggest to drop npm and take jspm ? Or maybe i don't get something.

@Nek- I’m not making a specific recommendation since everyone has different needs…but personally, I am getting excellent mileage out of the combination of gulp for overall task management, jspm (which leverages npm, github, and others anyway) for package management, and systemJS for module loading and ES6 transpiling (and in particular using systemJS to handle all on-the-fly loading/reloading/etc while developing).
in my case, this is primarily for angularJS dev…one of the reasons I started using this combo is that it gives me a pathway to learning what I need to know (like ES6 aka ES2015) in order to migrate to AngularJS 2 later.
Also being able to do stuff like "import 'angular-material/angular-material.css!’;” is just freaking cool :)

Yes. I just watch videos about.
It looks pretty awesome ^^ .
Actually I was trying to use systemjs by hand and guess what ? It was NOT AT ALL fun, lol.

I highly recommend trying out one of the seed projects. Some of them are a bit old but they are very educational.

It’ll get easier in future. Some of this stuff is still cutting edge…if not bleeding. :)

"Cutting-edge technology refers to current and fully developed technology features, unlike bleeding-edge technology, which is so new that it poses unreliability risks to users." :smile:
