For Visual studio 2015:
If you are using VS 2015 and ASP.NET 5, Visual Studio will install npm and gulp for you automatically.

So when you have node.js and gulp installed, you can use gulp from console. But it is better to have it integrated in Visual studio in order to do that you need this tool:
Task Runner Explorer extension[^]

Thanks xszaboj. But do you know if these tools are written by Microsoft using C/C++/.NET and Microsoft gave them the same name as NodeJs tools for sake ease?
