JavaScript Gulp Basics Gulp your JavaScript Workflow Using Third Party Gulp Libraries

Unable to concatenate JS

when I use Script in terminal gulp concatScript. It's giving me error : asserts.js:350

'use strict'; var gulp = require('gulp'), concat = require('gulp-concat');

gulp.task("concatScripts", function(){

gulp.task("default", ["hellp"], function(){ console.log("the default task!!"); });


This Treehouse course is significantly out of date, however I did some research to find some code that works. So I will share with you!

'use strict';

const gulp = require('gulp');
const concat = require('gulp-concat');

gulp.task("concatScripts", function () {
    'js/main.js' ])

gulp.task("hello", function () {

gulp.task('default', gulp.parallel('hello', function(done){
    console.log('This is the dafault task!');

Let me know if it helps.

Also on a side note you may find the Http server is not working, that is because there is currently a bug. So install npm:

npm install -g http-server@0.9.0

Don't fully know what the issue is but if you open up the terminal and cd into the ./node_modules and enter sudo rm -r .gulp.concat.DELETE then run the npm install gulp-concat --save-dev again. That should make it work like it's supposed to
