var gitVersion={"branch":"master","rev":"2","hash":"53d4271","hash160":"53d4271d8d7e7647fabc0d5086acd4f000a04046"};

Check index.js


var gulp = require('gulp');
var concat = require('gulp-concat');
var replace = require('gulp-replace');
var header = require('gulp-header');
var footer = require('gulp-footer');
var GitVersionJson = require('git-version-json');

// automatic use git-rev in version field of package.json
gulp.task('build-auto', [GitVersionJson.taskPkgVersion], function(){
    // TODO: do others building logic

// this is the same to use 'GitVersionJson.taskPkgVersion'
gulp.task('build-manual', [GitVersionJson.task], ()=>{
    return gulp.src('package.json')
            "$1" + MarkGitVersion.gitVer.rev + "$3$4"))

// add a header json variable
gulp.task('build-header', [GitVersionJson.task], function(){
    return gulp.src('js/**/*')
        .pipe(header("var gitVersion=${version};\n",
            { version: GitVersionJson.getGitVerStr() }))

// add a footer
gulp.task('build-footer', [GitVersionJson.task], function(){
    return gulp.src('js/**/*')
        .pipe(footer("var gitVersion=<%=version%>;\n",
            { version: JSON.stringify(GitVersionJson.gitVer) }))
