Using Laravel Elixir in a Cordova Phone App
I regularly use the awesome framework, Laravel, at work and building my hobbyist projects in my spare time. Any coder that uses Laravel should know about Laravel Elixir and how it makes using Gulp so, so, so much easier. For those who don’t know it basically converts about 30 lines of code into 1 line and when you’re writing 1000’s of lines of code every week this can be a huge time saver.
This week, I’ve been using my 10% innovation time to see if I can port the Laravel Elixir package over to the phone apps I’ve been working on. I use a Cordova framework called Ionic which is based on the AngularJS framework. So it makes sense to use a nice Gulp manager to help ease my workflow. Why not make it even easier?
