I recently stumbled onto an interesting build tool by the name of Brunch. This seems to be made for constructing picture-perfect HTML files without a lot of hooey.
Brunch is made to compile scripts, templates, and lint all of your code automatically. Modules can also be run during this time & applied to the compiled code. All code can also be minified for smaller file size outputs.
It’s a self-branded “ultra fast” build tool for websites.
If you’d like to see a live demo then check out this sample video for an introduction to Brunch.
