I wanted a link checker for my site my new static site, and I couldn’t find
one that used metalsmith or gulp. The closest thing I found was some code on
but even it had some problems. So, using that answer as a template, I wrote
my own very simple but functional link checker. But is it even worth adding
Gulp to the toolbelt? Spoiler: no. Gulp is crap,
make does everything I need
and more, and is easier and better. I stopped using Gulp.
