Web Standards Library Update – Week of January 6, 2014

| ,


This is the first week that I have separated out the post on articles and tutorials from new and updated projects. There are lots of new libraries to cover this week. Gulp got a lot of attention, in large part because it aims to replace the popular Grunt task runner. Koa also stood out as it is a new Node web framework being built by some of the same people who built Express.
