Gulp with Visual Studio

Recently, I worked on a ASP.NET 4.6 MVC 5 project which didn’t have anything MVC about it. πŸ™‚

It was a Single Page Application built on TypeScript, Knockout JS, CSS. Now, since it we didn’t have any server side code, we decided to give Gulp a try to concatenate and minify the JS and CSS files. Below I have explained the steps to configure gulp on ASP.NET 4.6 application with Visual Studio 2015. I created a sample application to explain the steps.

Disclaimer: This is my first attempt to use gulp in any of my projects. I do not claim to follow all the best practices. I you see there is anything I could have differently, please feel free to comment and share your ideas πŸ™‚
