  • This project is powered by Rosid, a web server with just-in-time pre-processing. JS (with Babel, UglifyJS), SASS (with cssnano, Autoprefixer) and Nunjucks can be used right out of the box.
  • Skeleton is just the beginning. Fork it and extend it to your own needs. The predefined structure gives you flexibility and can be modified with ease.

The included Dockerfile lets you build an image which compiles your site. In this case only Docker needs to be installed on the system. No other dependencies are required.
