I tried different options to learn how it works.

package.json located in /srv/projects/awesome-project/frontend/web/

gulp located in /srv/projects/awesome-project/frontend/web/node_modules/gulp/bin/

Run npx gulp --tasks

1) on /srv/projects/awesome-project/frontend/web/

Of course it doesn't work.

Result - npx searches for the node_modules directory in the parent directories and tries to run the binary from there.
