gulp is an open-source JavaScript toolkit created by Eric Schoffstall used as a streaming build system in front-end web development.



In a perfect world, you’d install gulp with guix:

$ guix package -i gulp

But you’ll likely find that gulp has not been packaged yet.

So we’ll resort to npm:

$ npm install gulp

This will install gulp to the current folder, with executable under node_modules/.bin/gulp.


“message: ‘Error: write EPIPE’, plugin: ‘gulp-gm’”

This error is related to a missing graphicsmagick library.

Resolve with:
