Here's an excerpt from an article I've published over on the LogRocket Medium publication:

Two popular Node.js task runners came to the rescue. The first is Grunt, with a first commit made in September 2011. This tool takes an imperative approach to configuring different tasks, building out deeply nested objects and calling a few methods. The second one is Gulp, having an initial commit in July, 2013. This tool takes a different approach, more functional in nature, piping the output of one function into the input of another function, streaming the results around.
