Summary

We've taken a look at two very powerful and very similar tools in this chapter. They've allowed us to not only significantly reduce the number of HTTP requests we were making, but to also completely restructure our app.

Both Grunt and gulp achieve the same result, but it's entirely personal choice which task runner you employ. I personally find gulp to be a little faster and simpler to configure, but there's no denying that Grunt has a lot more plugins at its disposal and is an older, more tested tool.

In the next chapter, we'll look at how we can use these two task runners to take the Less files that Bootstrap uses and compile them down into our own customized version.
