What would you like to do?
simple gulp recipe to sever any projects dist folder with express & node. Just add these to a project then move any project you'd like to server at the root and rename the folder 'frontend' and you're done
'use strict';
// simple express server
var express = require('express');
var app = express();
var router = express.Router();
app.use(express.static('public'));
app.get('/', function(req, res) {
// res.sendfile('./public/index.html');
});
app.listen(5000);
'use strict';
var gulp = require('gulp');
var browserSync = require('browser-sync');
var nodemon = require('gulp-nodemon');
gulp.task('default', ['browser-sync'], function () {
});
gulp.task('browser-sync', ['nodemon'], function() {
browserSync.init(null, {
proxy: "http://localhost:5000",
files: ["public/**/*.*"],
port: 7000,
});
});
gulp.task('move', function(){
gulp.src('frontend/dist/**/*', { base: 'frontend/dist/' })
.pipe(gulp.dest('public'));
});
gulp.task('nodemon',['move'], function (cb) {
var started = false;
return nodemon({
script: 'app.js'
}).on('start', function () {
if (!started) {
cb();
started = true;
}
});
});
