Automata

Dependency Status Built with Grunt

Automated Website Generator

by Michael Guerra

Automata/aw-tom-uh-tuh/ – Machines that perform a function according to a predetermined set of coded instructions, especially ones capable of a range of programmed responses to different circumstances.

Automata is an Automated Website Generator that utilizes Jekyll for static site templating, as well as Sass for responsive CSS preprocessing with automatic vendor prefixing and minification, JavaScript concatenation and minification, GIF/JPG/PNG/SVG image optimization, Bower asset management with cache-busting, and an automated PHP development server with BrowserSync for instant browser feedback.

Additionally, Foundation and WordPress theming support is included at no extra charge!

Installation

  1. Download and install Node.js if needed (for Grunt).
  2. Download and install Ruby if needed (for Jekyll).
  3. Download and unzip Automata.zip where you want it.
  4. From the command prompt, navigate to the Automata folder and type the following commands:
    • sudo gem install jekyll jekyll-paginate
    • sudo npm install -g grunt-cli
    • sudo npm install
    • Note: if you're installing on Windows, you do not need to begin each command with sudo
  5. That's it, now you're ready to build your web project!

Usage

  1. Modify the project directory variable at the top of the Gruntfile.js, if needed, and edit the projects/_example.com/website/_config.yml variables to match your projects needs. (Note: You can also duplicate the _example.com directory to create multiple projects (example2.com, example3.com, etc...), as long as you point to the appropriate Project Directory at the top of the Gruntfile.js file).
  2. From the command prompt, navigate to the Automata folder and run any of the following Grunt tasks:
    • grunt setup to download the latest version of .htaccess and install the bower components you have listed in the _config.yml file
    • grunt to develop your site with a live PHP server
    • grunt build to build a production version of your site
