What Tool to Use: webpack vs Gulp vs Grunt vs Browserify ← Alligator.io

workflow automation tools like Gulp or Grunt are vital for every project that requires web application development. These tools can assist in improving software engineer productivity. Additionally, they are able to automate routine operations such as CSS preprocessing, image compression, etc. And webpack is great for bundling various files together into a dependency graph.

Gulp is more modern compared to Grunt. It does coding vs writing a configuration for Grunt

If you want to save time and use only one workflow automation tool, webpack is the best option in my opinion. Its biggest advantage is that you don’t need to configure everything from scratch.
