The core of the transition is getting rid of Makefile and replacing it
with gulpfile.js. The rest is details (fixing dependencies, changing all
references to "make", etc.).
Target/task names mostly stay the same, so in most cases "gulp foo" does
what "make foo" did before. The only exceptions are "make browser" and
"make browserclean", which are now "gulp browser:build" and "gulp
browser:clean" (it feels more systematic).
Functionality is mostly unchanged (modulo Gulp clutter in the console),
but there are two small exceptions:
The reporter now displays just dots while previously it displayed
spec descriptions. There is also a deprecation warning (most likely
because I used an old version of gulp-jasmine in order to support
Jasmine 1.x). I kept these issues unfixed because I plan to switch
to Mocha soon (#409).
The copyright header is now added manually both to the development
and minified build. Before, it was added only to the development
build and the minified build relied on preserving it using "uglify
--comments". This was broken since switching to //-style comments.
There is now also an empty line between the header and the source
Do not test under io.js (which is no longer a thing), test under Node.js
4.0.x and 5.0.x.
Zero minor versions are intentional, I wan't to make sure that PEG.js
doesn't depend on any features added later in the 4.x and 5.x cycle.
Travis CI builds with Node.js 0.8.x started to fail:
Rather than investigating what's wrong I decided to stop supporting Node
0.8.x. Node.js 0.10.x is here for over a year, which should be enough
time for everyone to upgrade in the fast-paced Node.js world.
