A Stylus-powered frontend toolkit based on Bootstrap.


A Stylus-powered frontend toolkit based on Bootstrap.

Landscape is currently in early stages of development and breaking changes will most certainly be introduced. Recommended use for development purposes only.

To get started -- checkout the docs!

To install Landscape you must have nodejs installed.

$ npm install -g landscape

For automatic generation of linear gradient PNGs, install node-canvas (does not currently work on Windows):

$ npm install -g canvas

Note: You can install the packages locally by omitting the -g switch, but for ease of use it's recommended to install them globally.

First you need access to Landscape within Stylus, this can be done with the Stylus executable or programatically.

$ stylus --use landscape mytheme.styl

For more info, see Stylus docs.

var landscape = require('landscape');
### Customize the theme
Make a copy of the bootstrap theme and then change the variables inside `config.styl` to suite your needs.
To make your app use your theme, just point it to your `theme.styl` file and Stylus should do the rest.
How to run the docs locally?
You will have to clone the git repo, since the docs are not included in the npm package.
$ git clone

Also make sure you get the submodules.

$ git submodule update --init

Install all npm packages and then run app.js.

$ cd docs
$ docs/ npm update
$ docs/ node app.js

Note: If you're running Windows you will have to uncomment the canvas package in package.json.

Since Stylus is extremely lenient code-wise (you can omit braces, colons and semi-colos) we have put this tiny coding convention in place for Landscape:

  • All braces and colons are omitted
  • Variables are prepended with ($) dollar-sign
  • Properties are appended with (:) semi-colon
