Creates a grunt-nautilus Gruntfile with grunt-init to compile into a squarespace template.


If you haven't already done so, install grunt-init.

Once grunt-init is installed, clone the grunt-init-squarespace template into your ~/.grunt-init/ directory:

git clone ~/.grunt-init/squarespace

If you already have grunt-init-squarespace installed and need to update it, you can do the following:

cd ~/.grunt-init/squarespace
git pull origin master


This init template is installing with the latest release of grunt-nautilus. Run the following command from your project's root, replacing "Firefly" with your project name:

grunt-init squarespace --project "Firefly" --remote ""

This creates the following files in the current working directory:

  • .gitignore
  • Gruntfile.js
  • package.json

Now you can install the necessary packages:

# Node modules 
npm install

This will install grunt, grunt-nautilus and its peer packages as well as jquery and hammerjs.


Now clone your squarespace template into a directory called sqs_template directory and manage your site pushes from there.

git clone sqs_template
