by default and they don't really have very deep documentation on how to do
this.   It still looks like those errors can probably be reported back to
the script running them, but I haven't had time to dig in very deep on that
and again, it doesn't look as easy as what SauceLabs already has in place.
 If anyone on the list has other experience they can contribute, please
chime in!

Did you try it with yeti? A brief look at that example seems like that's
the thing for running mocha tests with browserstack.

integration with the SauceLabs API and dashboard.  We can run tests
automatically and the results are published to the SauceLabs dashboard.
 Sounds simple, but apparently not everyone is doing this.

it to run yet though.  Again, Gulp is still really new, and we probably
aren't going to find wide support yet here.  Obligatory

It's rather the point of gulp to be more a set of simple tools to construct
the process pipeline rather than a build system. One doesn't publish gulp
plugins as much because there isn't as much boilerplate to introduce custom
build steps as grunt.

At least, that's my understanding of it.

But I'm not sure any of this should be necessary.

I just found this:
