    Why Frontpack?


    Direct Download

    Download the script here and include it (unless you are packaging scripts somehow else).


    Navigate to the frontpack directory in Terminal and run the following commands:

    1. $ npm install To install dependencies
    2. $ npm start Build & watch files

    Development Usage

    The following node commands are available:

    • $ npm start (or npm start) Starts the project in the development mode. Surf to localhost:8080 in your browser to see it running.
    • $ npm run build Generates a production build below build. You can open the generated index.html through the browser to examine the result.
    • $ npm run lint:js Executes ESLint against the code. ESLint is able to catch smaller issues. The default setup lints even during development so you rarely need to execute this command yourself.
    • $ npm run stats Generates statistics (stats.json) about the project. You can analyze the build output further.
    • $ npm run styleguide Generates a style guide. The default setup generates one even during development so you rarely need to execute this command yourself.
    • $ npm run deploy Deploys the project to GitHub pages.

    Removing Unused CSS

    The default setup removes unused CSS during production builds using PurityCSS by scanning all files in the purifyOptions.paths setting in the webpack configuration file. Unfortunately, due to how webpack handles files in memory, PurityCSS is unable to scan URLs. To solve this, Frontpack allows you to run uncss outside of webpack by running the following:

    $npm run --silent uncss [url(s)] > dist/css/[filename].css

    Replace [url(s)] with the URL(s) uncss should scan and [filename] with the name of the output file. (ex. npm run --silent uncss > dist/css/global.bundle.css).

    IMPORTANT: For production builds using uncss, npm run build should be run first, then the uncss command above to ensure the file stays minimized. Also, be sure not to leave out the --silent argument or the node command will be added to the top of the outputted file. To change uncss options, use the .uncssrc file.
