import gulp = require('gulp');
import gulpFunction from 'gulp-function'; // default ES6 export
// import {forFirst, forEach, atEnd} from 'gulp-function'

let myAsyncFunction = async (file, enc) => {
  // await some async stuff

gulp.task('gulpTest', function() {
  let stream = gulp
    .pipe(gulpFunction(myAsyncFunction, 'forEach')) //read the notes below
    // .pipe(forEach(myAsyncFunction)) // if imported as >> import { forEach } from 'gulp-function' <<
  return stream; // by returning the stream gulp knows when our task has finished.


  • The first argument of gulpFunction can also be an array of multiple functionnames. Each function can return a promise. The pipe stop will finish when every promise is fullfilled. When providing an array of functions be careful with modifying the file object -> race condition
  • The second argument can be empty, it defaults to "forEach"
  • The following options are available:
    • "forFirst" - executes when first chunk/vinylfile of the stream reaches the pipestop. file is pushed further down the line when function's returned promise is fullfilled.
    • "forEach" - executes like "forFirst" but with every chunk/vinylfile in the stream;
    • "atEnd" - executes after all chunks have passed and are processed in full. That means the stream's "finish" event fires before "atLast" is executed!!!
