BL4NK

Light, powerful and free template for Joomla!™ for faster and easier web development.

How to use

This template is for local developing under Node.js® and Gulp. A good workflow is to code your template on localhost and if it is ready to deploy it on the live server (e.g. copy via sftp). And for shure, you should have a Joomla!™ installation ready for this.

Install

If Node.js® is installed, install Gulp via command prompt (e.g. console or terminal).

npm install -g gulp

Install BL4NK like a normal template in Joomla!™. Open your command prompt and go to the template directory. Install all dependencies.
