Assemble a blog from gists.

It's hard to believe when you see how fast the pages render, but all of the content in the example pages is from Gists.

Getting Started

Download this project:

git clone

Install the necessary dependencies to run the build:

npm i

Once dependencies are installed, you may build the project by running grunt or grunt assemble.


Currently the assemble.css stylesheet is used in the examples, but the project is already setup to use Bootstrap if you want to edit the styles.

To do so, from the root of the project git clone Bootstrap:

git clone -b 3.0.0-wip "vendor/bootstrap"

(the "less" task is currently configured to use the vendor directory)

In ./src/layouts/default.hbs, change this:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="{{assets}}/assemble.css">

to this:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="{{assets}}/bootstrap.css">

Then run grunt less to compile.

In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using grunt.
