    Playbook CircleCI

    Playbook is a Yeoman generator for prototyping and building experiences. Jekyll is included for static site generation. Bourbon, Neat & Bitters are included to help you write CSS faster.

    Gulp is used for compilation of Sass and CoffeeScript (optional). Bower is used for managing dependencies.



    npm install -g generator-playbook


    If you already have Playbook installed, please update before generating new projects to get the latest updates.

    npm list -g generator-playbook # See your installed version 
    npm info generator-playbook dist-tags.latest # See the latest version 
    npm update -g generator-playbook # Update Playbook globally 


    Playbook will run bundle install. If you would like to install the Playbook gems into a gemset, set that up before running yo playbook.

    mkdir project-name && cd project-name
    yo playbook

    Should you run into an error such as command yo not found it may be related to a path issue when installing Node.js via Homebrew. Please refer to the top answer on this StackOverflow question.
