About Your New Project
The project architecture implements the Clarion Style Architecture.
MyProject/ |--build/ | |--src/ | |--sass/ | | |--00_Abstracts/ # Variables, Functions, Mixins, and Placeholders | | | | | |--01_Base/ # Resets/Normalize, Typography Rules, Etc. | | | |--index.scss # Manifest File | | | | | |--02_Vendors/ # Style sheets provided by a third party such as themes or plug-ins | | | |--index.scss # Manifest File | | | | | |--03_Elements/ # Styles for HTML tags, such as a form label, an input or a button | | | |--index.scss # Manifest File | | | | | |--04_Components/ # Cards, Carousels, and Navbars | | | |--index.scss # Manifest File | | | | | |--05_Layouts/ # Grid System, Header, Footer, and Sidebars | | | |--index.scss # Manifest File | | | | | |--06_Pages/ # Page specific styles | | | |--index.scss # Manifest File | | | | | |--07_Utilities/ # Utilities and Helper Classes | | | |--index.scss # Manifest File | | | | | |--styles.scss/ # Main Sass Manifest | | | |--scripts/ | |--components/ # Component-Specific Scripts | |--services/ # Reusable Functionality | |--main.js | |--index.html |--package.json |--postcss.config.js |--webpack.config.js
Adding a New File
Additional style files can easily be manged through the CLI as well.
clarion add <directory> <file name>
clarion add element headings
This will create the file _headings.scss in the 03_Elements directory as well as add "@import '_headings.scss'" import statement to the directory manifest file so it can be included in your final CSS file.
Removing a File
Similar to adding a file, removing files can also be done through the CLI.
clarion remove <directory> <file name>
clarion remove element headings
This will remove the file _headings.scss in the 03_Elements directory as well as remove "@import '_headings.scss'" import statement from the directory manifest file.

npm run build
These are options you can run when initializing you project.
