A tour of Node building tools

In this series of articles, we'll explore popular Node based tools for building web applications. Although npm itself can be used for build automation (see "How to use npm as a build tool"), we will focus on specialised npm packages: grunt, gulp and broccoli. We will try to understand what problems they solve, how to use them and what their limitations are.
