This project shows the amazing things you can accomplish with Assemble and the helpers from the handlebars-helpers library.

Getting Started

  • Download this project and unzip it into a new folder.
  • In the project folder, run npm install to install Assemble, Grunt and any other dependencies.
  • Once the dependencies are installed you may run grunt assemble to build the example project.

If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile, as well as install and use Grunt plugins.

The helpers

The helpers in the ./experimental are exactly that, experimental. If you use helpers in that directory on your projects, don't be surprised if something breaks (but please let us know so we can fix it!).

handlebars-helpers is the maintained by the core team of Assemble, a component, site and documentation generator based on Grunt.js. The helpers in this project can be used with our without Assemble.

If you want to see the types of helpers that are included, either visit the handlebars-helpers repo or just pull down this project, install the dependencies (npm install), and run grunt build.

Then go to the ./src and ./dest directories to look around.


We want to continue building this library, so if you have helpers you'd like to contribute, please submit a pull request on the handlebars-helpers project.

In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Use Assemble to build and maintain your gh-pages, blog or documentation. Lint and test your code using Grunt.
