HTML5 Blank

Powerful shell for rapidly deploying your WordPress projects.

Getting Started with HTML5 Blank

  • Go to the Wordpress' theme folder (.../wp-content/themes)
  • In CLI, run: git clone https://github.com/html5blank/html5blank.git
  • cd html5blank and then npm install (you'll need gulp installed as well)
  • gulp watch will enable livereload and development version
  • gulp build for distribute version with minified js and css files
  • NOTE: src and dist folders can live happily together inside the same folder (html5blank) that's inside the theme folder. You'll have two different instances of the theme within Appearance > Themes panel inside the admin
