This is a yeoman generator that scaffolds out a project using Zurb Foundation by default, expanding on yeoman's
quickstart generator. This generator will install Zurb Foundation, jQuery, Backbone.js, Underscore.js, and Require.js.
You will need the
zurb-foundation compass gem installed. Visit the foundation documentation for detailed directions on installation. If you already have your ruby environment setup, all you need to do for installation is:
[sudo] gem install zurb-foundation
You can install this generator globally via npm:
[sudo] npm install -g yeoman-foundation
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 foundation
to generate the basic scaffolding for a foundation based project.
yeoman install jquery backbone requirejs --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 requirejs --save
to add them.
