You can apply a watch on files using gulp means if there are any changes to those files you can run specific tasks.

In the code snippet, we have created a task named 'watch'. When we run the 'gulp watch' command in the terminal it will start the watch task and continuously watch all .scss files in 'app/scss/' folder and all js files in 'app/js/' folder.

If there is any change in .scss files, it will run the task 'sass' and it will run task 'minifyjs' if there is any change in js files.
