We recommend you read the Getting started guide for information about the contents, caveats and more.

We recommend you to read the version milestiones if you feel like want to collaborate.


Furatto's documentation is built using Jekyll and publish thorugh Github pages at You should be able to run them locally.

Running documentation locally

  1. You need to install Jekyll or run bundle install
  2. From the root of the project furatto/ run jekyll serve --watch from the command line, this way if you change any file jekyll will generate that for you.
  3. Open http://localhost:9001/furatto and you are good to go.

Jekyll is a great way to work with static pages, we definitely recommend you take a look at the documentation.

Old documentation

We still provide support for version 1 and 2 as it is a big change from one to another, you can visit the old docs V1 and V2.

We encourage you to migrate to version 3 as is a more stable, friendly and extendable version.

Compiling CSS and JavaScript

Furatto V3 now uses Grunt to compile all the Sass code and start working with the framework. Before getting started you need to add the necessary dependencies:

Installing Grunt

From the command line:

  1. Install grunt-cli globally with npm install -g grunt-cli.
  2. Navigate to the root /furatto directory, then run npm install. npm will look at package.json and automatically install the necessary local dependencies listed there.

If you need to install npm, or you are not quite sure what it is, here is a quick link for you to get started. NPM

Available Grunt tasks

Some of the grunt tasks are:

Build - grunt

This task will build the whole framework, which means, sass compilation, coffeescript compilation, dist directory creation, compression of files and more.


We have a very useful workflow to work with Furatto and Grunt:

  1. Run jekyll serve --watch from the command line on the root folder furatto/
  2. In another terminal run grunt watch, which will be pending of any change on any coffeescript or sass file. It will compile everything up and deliver it to Jekyll, which by receiving the change will regenerate the necessary files.

We also include livereload to reload when the watch task is over, for more info refer to the our Gruntfile

Using Rails?
