  1. Run gulp on CW servers

    So i talked to 2 support employees today, both with the same outcome: "Today it is not possible to run gulp on cloudways."

    1. You can't install gulp globally, since cloudways won't allow global npm install.
    2. You can't run gulp locally, because this will give you some permission denied.

    The weirdest thing of all... Gulp is necessary to use Elixir on Laravel 5.x. The have pre-installed laravel applications, but you can't use the elixir function. Wtf?!

    Hello Yordi:

    I am sorry you had to go through that much trouble.

    Could you please help me understand how you were trying to use Gulp here that didn’t work?

    It is true that at this point in time we don’t support global installation of Gulp. But you should be able to use Gulp easily.

    If you have the Gulp dependency defined in the package.json file, then you may run `npm install` to install it. Once installed, if you have a gulpfile.js with Elixir assets defined, you can run gulp by referencing it via `./node_modules/gulp/bin/gulp.js`. It is a somewhat inconvenient, yes, but it should do the job right.

    Could you please tell me if you faced issues this way?
