Magento 2 Frontools

Set of front-end tools for Magento 2, based on Gulp.js

Questions

If you have any questions about this project let's go to offical Magento forum - Less to Sass Community Project

Requirements

  • Unix-like OS (please, do not ask about Windows support)
  • Node.js LTS version (currently branch v6). We recommend to use avn to automate version switching. Required configuration is already added to repository as .node-version file.
  • Gulp CLI global package - yarn global add gulp-cli or npm install -g gulp-cli
  • Magento 2 project with SASS based theme i.e. SASS version of "Blank"

Installation

  1. Run composer require snowdog/frontools
  2. Go to package directory cd vendor/snowdog/frontools
  3. Run yarn or npm install
  4. Decide where you want to keep your config files. You can store them in Frontools config directory or in dev/tools/frontools/config. There is a gulp setup task to copy all sample config files from the config to dev/tools/frontools/config and create a convenient symlink tools in the project root. If you want to keep config files inside frontools config dir, you have to handle this manually.
  5. Define your themes in themes.json.

themes.json structure

Check config/themes.json.sample to get samples.

  • src - full path to theme
  • dest - full path to pub/static/[theme_area]/[theme_vendor]/[theme_name]
  • locale - array of available locales
  • parent - name of parent theme
  • stylesDir - (default styles) path to styles directory. For theme-blank-sass it's styles. By default Magento 2 use web/css.
  • disableSuffix - disable adding .min suffix using --prod flag.
  • postcss - (deafult ["plugins.autoprefixer()"]) PostCSS plugins config. Have to be an array.
  • modules - list of modules witch you want to map inside your theme
  • ignore - array of ignore patterns

watcher.json structure

Check config/watcher.json.sample to get samples.

  • usePolling - set this to true to successfully watch files over a network (i.e. Docker or Vagrant) or when your watcher dosen't work well. Warining, enabling this option may lead to high CPU utilization! chokidar docs
