Dependency Status devDependency Status Built with Grunt Code Climate


If you don't already have the following installed, you will need to install these first:

  • Node.js
  • npm
  • Ruby
  • Sass

After you've set this stuff up please run

$ npm install -g grunt-cli bower

This installs the Grunt command line tools and bower. Then CD into your directory of choice and run:

$ npm install

This will install all the things you need for running the grunt-tasks automatically. Then install the Bower components using:

$ bower install

That command will create a folder Bower_Components which holds all vendor dependencies managed by Bower that are listed in the bower.json file.


If running the install does not work, please try running it with admin-rights:

$ sudo npm install -g grunt-cli

$ sudo npm install

Browser support

sudo * Chrome

  • Firefox 4+
  • Internet Explorer 8+
  • Opera 12+
  • Safari 5+


Feel free to contribute and help this project grow! Any support and/or feedback is always welcome.


Inflame was built with the idea that your project will be using Sass. Please do not edit the CSS-files in any case but search the corresponding .scss file and edit it accordingly. If you are not familiar with SCSS you can write pure CSS which is actually valid SCSS.

However all .scss-files are compiled into one file called main.css in the css-folder.

You can find more information about the installation process of Sass and the usage of SCSS in the Sass Tutorial.

If you need help installing Sass on your Windows machine, you can follow this great tutorial: Sass Tutorial - Windows


Currently in use is jQuery, Modernizr and RequireJS.

Please use JSHint for your JavaScript before you commit. You can use the Grunt-task jshint for this. You can also just run grunt watch.

Creating a Build

Please use Grunt.js for building a production-state of a website. The Gruntfile.js has tasks for concatenating and minifing CSS and JavaScript.

Additional information on this project is stored in package.json.
