A generator for Yeoman for sitebuilding


A generator for Yeoman.

Trick question. It's not a thing. It's this guy:

Basically, he wears a top hat, lives in your computer, and waits for you to tell him what kind of application you wish to create.

Not every new computer comes with a Yeoman pre-installed. He lives in the npm package repository. You only have to ask for him once, then he packs up and moves into your hard drive. Make sure you clean up, he likes new and shiny things.

$ npm install -g yo

Yeoman travels light. He didn't pack any generators when he moved in. You can think of a generator like a plug-in. You get to choose what type of application you wish to create, such as a Backbone application or even a Chrome extension.

To install generator-statik from npm, run:

$ npm install -g generator-statik

Finally, initiate the generator:

$ yo statik
  • This generator requires Ruby, Sass and Haml

  • Using Haml to generate html

  • Using Sass and compass to generate css

  • Using grunt-contrib-imagemin to optimize images

  • Using grunt-contrib-cssmin to minify css

After install:


$ grunt setup
$ grunt server

if you want to build and optimizr your code just type:

$ grunt build 

open your favourite text editor and go to the src folder and start coding:)

Yeoman has a heart of gold. He's a person with feelings and opinions, but he's very easy to work with. If you think he's too opinionated, he can be easily convinced.
