Gulp was devoured!

If you get this message when you run gulp, you have installed devour which also provides a gulp executable that wraps Gulp and prints this message.

I was having problems building some assets for a project, and eventually discovered this after a lot of hair-tearing trying to figure out why nothing was building. Hopefully the search engines will pick up on this and give more useful results to the next person who has this problem.


How to install NodeJS on Debian/Ubuntu systems using Ansible

Since I’ve had to figure out how to do this twice now, and the NodeSource instructions make this more confusing than it ought to be. Make sure you replace node_6.x with the appropriate version from the installation instructions and xenial with the results of lsb_release -s -c.

  apt_key:
    state: present
    url: https://deb.nodesource.com/gpgkey/nodesource.gpg.key
- name: NodeSource repository
  apt_repository:

- name: Install NodeJS
  apt:
    state: present
    name: nodejs
