A Yeoman generator for the Kickoff front-end framework

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 5 for your needs.

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

To install generator-kickoff from npm, run:

npm install -g generator-kickoff
npm install -g yo generator-kickoff

Finally, initiate the generator:
