Gulp like Grunt is a task runner however it has 2 major differences. Firstly it uses code over configuration and secondly it relies on passing data through streams rather than updating files. Initially Gulp can feel a little more complicated if you’ve come from a Grunt background as you need to start thinking in terms of Streams however once you’ve mastered the basics you’ll benefit from faster build routines. I’ve been using Gulp for most tasks now for quite a few years and the ecosystem of plugins is vast making it fairly easy to move over from Grunt. The only area where I no longer use Gulp is for building apps, as Webpack is a far cleaner solution for large projects.
