To start using Cuttlebelle make sure you got NodeJs installed.

Install Cuttlebelle so that the cuttlebelle command is available to you globally.

npm install cuttlebelle -g

Run the init command now to get you started with a bunch of files and a minimum layout.

💡 Make sure you run this in an empty folder

cuttlebelle init

This command will create the below files and compile them for you into the site folder.

├── assets
│   └── css
│       └── site.css

Now running the watch command will open the browser for you and show you what you got so far.

cuttlebelle watch

The address the server will listen on starts at http://localhost:8080/ and increase its port number depending on what ports are available on your machine. So the address you put in your browser could be http://localhost:8081/ or http://localhost:8085/ etc.
