AngularJS Question

How to start Gulp server for Yeoman app?


  1. I'm trying to build my first application using Yeoman + angular
    + gulp.

  2. I've also created on application using gulp, which works completely fine when I type 'gulp' in git-bash. So as such there is
    not an issue with the node.

  3. Following is the step I followed to
    install the application,


    1. npm install -g yo

    2. npm install -g generator-angular (in this I've asked to select between gulp and grunt, so I selected gulp)

    3. install gulp and related plugins mentioned in gulpjs file

    4. try to run an application using gulp




Here is the gulpfile.js

Answer

Use 'gulp serve' command to start the server.

To Build : gulp build OR gulp

Run karma/jasmine test script : Use 'gulp test'
