    Using Calavera


    To start with, you will need to have Nodejs installed. You can find instructions on the Nodejs website.

    Your next stop is to ensure that your project has a package.json file in the root of the project. If your project does not already have one, you can create one using the npm init or yarn init command from your command line/terminal.

    With the above in place, you are ready to start using Calavera.

    Example Usage

    Inside your package.json we will add a calavera config entry that will tell Calavera which configs to install. Calavera support the following config options:

    • Prettier
    • CSS
    • SCSS
    • ESLint

    or a combination of the above. You can read details on each configuration in the Calavera docs.

    Once you have added your chosen Calavera config, for exmaple:

    "calavera": {
        "eslint": true,
        "prettier": true

    Run the following from the root of your project:

    npx project-calavera

    This will add the required dot-files to your project. Once the command completes, it will output the command you should run to install the required dependencies:

    NOTE: Calavera by default prints the command for the Yarn dependency manager. If you prefer NPM, you can specify it as part of your Calavera config, for example:

    "calavera": {
       "manager": "npm",
       "eslint": true,
       "prettier": true
    Run the following command to install your dependencies: npm i -D --save-exact babel-cli babel-preset-env eslint

    Copy, paste and run the command in your terminal. Once complete, you are of to the races.

    Make something awesome! 💀
