bootUP Build Status


With bootUP you can quickly build responsive static websites and iterate on them without refreshing the browser! It contains some of the most widely used frontend tools and frameworks.

Demo Site


Skip this part if you already have Node.js, Grunt and Bower on your machine.

  1. Get Node.js
  2. Install Grunt - $ npm install -g grunt-cli
  3. Install Bower - $ npm install -g bower

Getting Started

  1. Download bootUP or clone it.
  2. $ npm install
  3. $ grunt server

Other tasks:

  • Build: $ grunt
  • Clean: $ grunt clean
  • Clean & Build: $ grunt cb (also validates HTML and Javascript)

Note: if you get the error ENOSPC Error on Linux, do this:

$ echo fs.inotify.max_user_watches=524288 | sudo tee -a /etc/sysctl.conf && sudo sysctl -p


Google Analytics

Edit assemble.json and change ga to your tracking id and domain to match the domain you use for Google Analytics.

Switching themes

Edit assemble.json and change theme to any of the Bootswatch theme names:

amelia, cerulean, cosmo, cyborg, darkly, flatly, journal, lumen, readable, simplex, slate, spacelab, superhero, united, yeti

Use default for the vanilla Bootstrap style.

Switching templates

Edit assemble.json and change template to one of the following:

modern-business, grayscale, monolite

Currently there are three templates to choose from:

  • Modern Business - a full site Bootstrap template
  • Grayscale - a nice black & white single page template
  • Monolite - a Grayscale clone but lighter. Great as a template for documentation!

Feel free to add more templates by creating a pull request or you could just ask me politely 😉
