Getting started

Four quick steps to get started:

  • Clone the repo.
  • Run npm: npm install.
  • Run npm: npm start or run gulp: gulp
  • If you have a different folder setup than the default bower, you should modify the config.json to fit your needs.

What's the structure?

Within the repo you'll find the following directories and files:

├── src/
│   ├── less
│   ├── icons
│   ├── js
│   └── templates
├── dist/
│   ├── css
│   ├── js
│   ├── fonts
├── docs

So you want to build the less on your own?

Nothing easier than that! Simply include our styes.less files like: @import "bower_components/hyTechne/src/less/styles";.

IMPORTANT: There is no default value for @bower-path set. It is required that you define this variable in your own stylesheet and point to your bower_components folder. (No trailing slash).

@bower-path: '../../bower_components';

Reason: In order to be able to overwrite a variable in a import path, the variable can not yet be defined. Otherwise the LESS compiler picks the first definition and that's it.

Also remember to fix the paths for fonts by overwriting the path variables in a less include after the style.less include like:

@import "_resource-paths";

and add in the file something like:

// Use this file to point to the right folders
// for correct paths for icon-fonts etc
// icon names much follow a UTF hex naming format
@bootstrap-path: '../../bower_components/bootstrap'; // Path to bootstrap folder
@hytech-path: '../../bower_components/hyTechne'; // Path to hytech folder

Note: In order to build the less the minimum required version of less is 2.3.0.
