    Getting started


    Installing the CLI

    To run the readme generator from the command line, you'll need to install [Generate][] globally first. You can do that now with the following command:

    $ npm install --global generate

    This adds the gen command to your system path, allowing it to be run from any directory.

    Install generate-hekyll

    Install this module with the following command:

    $ npm install --global generate-hekyll


    Run this generator's default task with the following command:

    $ gen readme

    What you should see in the terminal

    If completed successfully, you should see both starting and finished events in the terminal, like the following:

    [00:44:21] starting ...
    [00:44:22] finished ✔

    If you do not see one or both of those events, please let us know about it.


    To see a general help menu and available commands for Generate's CLI, run:

    $ gen help

    Available tasks

    All available tasks for this generator.


    Scaffold out a new handlebars blog or site from a jekyll theme.


    $ gen hekyll
    $ gen hekyll:default


    Delete themes that have been cloned and cached by generate-hekyll from the generate-hekyll/themes directory. This does not delete your copy of the theme, only the cached version used by generate-hekyll.


    $ gen hekyll:delete
