Quickly create a Handlebars helper that can easily be used with Assemble
Quickly create helpers for use with Assemble, using grunt-init. Includes README documentation, test files, metadata, bower.json and package.json.
If you have
grunt-init and are familiar with using it:
git clone ~/.grunt-init/assemble
Then, in empty directory:
gruntto test that it works
In the the
test directory you will find the following files:
example.hbs: this is an example template, which contains code for both an example helper and a starting point for your new custom helper.
example.json: this is the data file used by the helper
npm i -g grunt-cli grunt-init
Once grunt-init is installed, place this template in your
~/.grunt-init/ directory. It's recommended that you use
git clone to install this template into that directory as follows:
git clone email@example.com:assemble/assemble-init.git ~/.grunt-init/assemble
(Windows users, see the documentation for the correct destination directory path)
grunt-init to use custom default values, move the
defaults.json file to your
~/.grunt-init/ directory, and customize the values in that file.
grunt init is intalled. At the command-line, cd into an empty directory and run
grunt-init assemble and follow the prompts. You might want to test that it works before you begin customizing the project:
- Next, run
npm installto install the project's dependencies.
- Then, run
gruntto build the project.
Note that this template will generate files in the current directory, so be sure to change to a new directory first.
