Getting Started

npm install -g gulp slush bower
  • Install slush-kickstart globally
npm install -g slush-kickstart
  • In terminal/command line, cd into your project directory
  • Run the generator to scaffold your project
slush kickstart
  • OR run the generator with --skip-install to skips the automatic execution of bower and npm after scaffolding has finished like that
slush kickstart --skip-install
  • After all done installing and scaffolding has finished, you can run gulp tasks:
    • gulp to run default tasks for development
    • gulp build to build your project for production
    • gulp help to get a listing of available tasks

clean clean:cache - clean:prod clean dest folders (dev & prod) & caches :: base/clean.js

Configuration & Paths

  • From gulp/config.js you can define tasks & plugins options without change anything in task file, example :
// bower task mainBowerFiles options 
    mainBowerFiles: {
        // main options 
        options: {
            base: 'bower_components'
        },
        // bower:css rename options 
        rename: {
            suffix: "-css",
            extname: '.scss'
        },
        // watch src 
        watch: ['./bower_components/**', './bower.json']
    },
  • From gulp/paths.js you can define all paths for tasks, example :
// base paths 
var src    = './source/',
    dist   = './build/',
    dev    = 'dev/',
    prod   = 'prod/',
    assets = 'assets/';
 
// nunjucks files 
        nunjucks: {
            config: src + 'templates/',
            src: src + 'templates/*.{html,nunjucks}',
            watch: src + 'templates/**/*.+(html|nunjucks)'
        },
