Gulp is a popular task runner built on Node.js that simplifies and automates repetitive tasks in web development workflows. It allows developers to define tasks as code and efficiently manage processes like minification, compilation, testing, and more. Gulp's streaming build system processes files as streams, which results in faster task execution and reduced I/O operations.

Compared to alternatives like Grunt, Gulp offers a more intuitive and flexible approach to task automation with its code-over-configuration philosophy. Gulp's active community and extensive plugin ecosystem provide a wide range of tools and integrations to streamline development workflows.
