Getting Ruby and Sass
Check if you have ruby available on your system:
$ which ruby
If not, find a suitable method for your OS and personal taste to use to install ruby. Many such methods are explained at www.ruby-lang.org.
Once you have ruby installed you should be able to run
$ bundle install
from within the ndia-angular directory. This will install the rubygems for sass, compass and any other ruby dependencies.
Getting Node & NPM
There are a few ways to get node & npm installed on your system:
- You can grab the latest installer directly from the Node.js website.
- OR, you can install node via your OS's package manager.
- OR (my favorite), you can use the Node Version Manager.
Once you have npm installed, you may want to install the following modules globally* (by passing the -g argument to npm):
$ npm -g install bower $ npm -g install grunt-cli
* in general we like to keep our node modules in the local directory for the project which requires them. There are a few exceptions to this, such as grunt and bower, which will generally be used across many different projects.
Once you have bower and grunt, you can install the remaining modules for this project. From withing the ndia-angular directory run:
$ npm install $ bower install
Running ndia-angular with grunt
Get a list of possible grunt commands by running:
$ grunt --help
To run the server and make this application available in your browser at http://localhost:9000:
$ grunt serve
To just run the tests in the terminal:
$ grunt test
To build the production assets, run the default grunt task, simply:
