A simple website creating tool, package, framework whatever.

gettheshitdone is a very simple tool that helps you to tick off landing pages, small websites and all this kind of crap. It has a big brother, called middleman (ruby world) but because we all love Node.js I hacked it together.


(sudo) npm install -g gettheshitdone

How does it work?

It is very simple. You just have to type:

$ gettheshitdone websitename
$ cd websitename
$ npm install

and it will auto generate the following structure:

 - /websitename     [dir]
 |- /source         [dir]
 |-- /css           [dir]
 |-- /img           [dir]
 |-- /includes      [dir]
 |-- /js            [dir]
 |-- /stylus        [dir]
 |-- about.jade     [file]
 |-- index.jade     [file]
 |- gtsd.server.js  [file]
 \- package.json    [file]

you can start hacking right away because it has generated a sample website. The routing is build through parsing the jade files inside the source directory. If you want to include templates / mixins inside a jade file, put it into includes. A stylus middleware is integrated thus you can just write nice stylus css (just check the stylus folder).

Usually you should never care about anything else than the source directory and the jade, stylus and image files!

You can’t perform that action at this time.
