Announcing Laravel Elixir


October 10th, 2014


Any modern application these days will require some form of automated asset/script compilation, concatenation, and general file watching. While tools, like Grunt and Gulp, simplify these common tasks, the truth is that it still takes too much effort to get up and running. But what if we could add a layer on top of Gulp to make the process of triggering such tasks as simple as it could possibly be? Well, we can! Let’s talk about Laravel Elixir, which is now included with the base install of Laravel 5.

This is an exciting to me just because of the time savings it’s going to introduce. So many articles have been written about setting up Gulp that I think it’s apparent having it pre-built will be a welcome addition.
