A generator for Yeoman.
What is Yeoman?
Trick question. It's not a thing. It's this guy:
Basically, he wears a top hat, lives in your computer, and waits for you to tell him what kind of application you wish to create.
Not every new computer comes with a Yeoman pre-installed. He lives in the npm package repository. You only have to ask for him once, then he packs up and moves into your hard drive. Make sure you clean up, he likes new and shiny things.
$ npm install -g yo
Yeoman travels light. He didn't pack any generators when he moved in. You can think of a generator like a plug-in. You get to choose what type of application you wish to create, such as a Backbone application or even a Chrome extension.
To install generator-statik from npm, run:
$ npm install -g generator-statik
Finally, initiate the generator:
$ yo statik
This generator requires Ruby, Sass and Haml
Using Haml to generate html
- Using Sass and compass to generate css
- Using grunt-contrib-imagemin to optimize images
- Using grunt-contrib-cssmin to minify css
$ grunt setup $ grunt server
if you want to build and optimizr your code just type:
$ grunt build
open your favourite text editor and go to the src folder and start coding:)
Getting To Know Yeoman
Yeoman has a heart of gold. He's a person with feelings and opinions, but he's very easy to work with. If you think he's too opinionated, he can be easily convinced.
