Quick-start guide

  1. Fork this repo
  2. Clone locally
  3. Install Node.js and Ruby
  4. Run gem install bundler
  5. Install 'grunt-cli' and 'bower' globally with npm install -g grunt-cli bower
  6. $cd to the directory and run bundle install
  7. Run npm install to install the necessary "npm" dependencies
  8. Then run bower install to install the front-end dependencies
  9. Edit site variables

In Gruntfile.js edit baseurl and git_repo (destination repository):

        app: {
            source: 'app',
            dist: 'dist',
            baseurl: 'zeppelin-grunt',  // Here
            git_repo: ''  // And here

In _config.yml you should also update baseurl and url:

# Site settings
baseurl: "/zeppelin-grunt"  // Here
url: ""  // And here
permalink: '/blog/:title'

Now you are ready for development. Following commands are available:

  1. grunt (by default it runs grunt serve) - build and start your site for development (with livereload, js uglifing and sass compilation)
  2. grunt serve:dist - build and start your site with production configs (this is how it will look online)
  3. grunt deploy - build and deploy your site into a repository you defined in previous steps
