I have to agree. The more complex the task, the more tedious bash seems. Especially when I need to pair it with .bat for cross platform projects, python or node make a lot more sense. My preference is coffeescript. I find Cakefile to be very helpfull.

Task runners are great tools for running maintenance scripts on projects. My usual pick is pyinvoke but, naturally, these should be selected depending on the project language.
