Files for the HTML5 Boilerplate website.

branch: master source code

The HTML5 Boilerplate website is a simple static site.

  • The development code is in the src directory.
  • The build process relies on Grunt (a Node.js task runner).
  • The Grunt configuration is found in Gruntfile.js file.


  1. Install Node.js and npm.
  2. Install Grunt's command line interface (CLI) globally: npm install -g grunt-cli.
  3. Run npm install.


You should be able to work almost entirely in the src directory.

While developing run grunt dev. This will:

  • open the website in your default browser and automatically update it whenever changes are made to the page or any of the files contained in the page
  • lint the code and inform you about any suspicious language usage


When you have finished your changes, make sure that the distribution package is correct by running grunt build and then checking the output.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
