Yeoman generator for the Kickoff framework
Using our Yeoman Generator is the best and fastest way to get Kickoff each time you want to start a new project. It will ask you a few questions and then build a custom version of Kickoff version 6 for your needs.
What is Yeoman?
Yeoman helps you kickstart new projects, prescribing best practices and tools to help you stay productive. Yeoman is open-source but is maintained by a number of people from Google.
We have created a generator that once installed, allows you to create a custom build of Kickoff whenever you need.
If you haven't installed Yeoman yet, run this command in your terminal:
npm install -g yo
Install the generator
To install generator-kickoff from npm, run:
npm install -g generator-kickoff
Install them both :)
npm install -g yo generator-kickoff
Finally, initiate the generator:
The Kickoff generator asks for this information:
- Project name
- Developer's names?
- Does this project support IE8?
- Include Kickoff's styleguide?
- Use Kickoff Statix for static templating and rapid prototyping?
- Use Grunticon?
- jQuery v1.x
- jQuery v2.x
- trak.js - Universal event tracking API
- Swiftclick - Eliminates the 300ms click event delay on touch devices
- Use Modernizr?
