This is a yeoman generator that scaffolds out a project using Twitter Bootstrap by default, expanding on yeoman's quickstart generator. This generator will install Twitter Bootstrap, jQuery, Backbone.js, Underscore.js, Modernizr, Require.js, and require-jade.


You can install this generator globally via npm:

[sudo] npm install -g yeoman-bootstrap

I have only tested this on Mac OS X, but it should work in Windows and other *nix environments. During a global npm install, the generator will get installed in your global node_modules directory, while a symlink to the foundation generator will be created in your global yeoman generators directory:



After copying to your global generator location, use:

yeoman init bootstrap-less

to generate the basic scaffolding for a bootstrap based project.

This generator provides a scaffold that uses require.js to load javascript modules. After generating the project scaffolding a node child_process will run to install jQuery, Backbone, and Require.js along with any dependencies. This child process is running yeoman install jquery backbone modernizr bootstrap requirejs require-jade --save so you don't have to after.

Note: There is a bug in Yeoman 0.9.6 that is preventing the --save argument from adding files to component.json. If you would like your components saved in there, run: bower install jquery backbone modernizr bootstrap requirejs require-jade --save to add them.


You can uninstall this generator via npm:

[sudo] npm uninstall -g yeoman-bootstrap

This will remove the symlink in your global yeoman generators directory and then proceed to delete the package.
