Brunch is a powerful assembly tool to assist developers in producing deployment-ready code. Although alternatives like Grunt and Codekit have been available for some time, Brunch’s ease of use and simple configuration makes it the tool of choice for myself.

Brunch’s core power revolves around:

  • Compiling LESS or SASS into CSS
  • Concatenation of scripts
  • Javascript validation
  • Minify scripts & styles

Once configured, Brunch watches your files for any changes and automatically compiles your stylesheets and scripts.

Build errors are printed directly to the console and the tool has a wide range of skeleton applications and plugins supporting script & style languages, templating, minifiers, linters and more.
