From version 2.3.1 we depend on the latest version of Node.js. If you use Ubuntu 13:04 we recommend reading this: How to install the latest Node.js version using the PPA.

This tutorial assumes that you already have the latest version of node.js and npm installed.

  • Clone our branch: https://github.com/newaeonweb/responsiveboilerplate.git
  • Or you can use Bower: `bower install responsiveboilerplate`.
  • Go to directory folder(responsiveboilerplate) and execute: `npm install` to download all the dependecies.
  • We strongly recommend the use of index.html as your starting point.
  • Place your content like the example:

<!--Container Class to centralize your grid-->
<div class="container">
	<!--Content Class to align the columns-->
	<div class="content">
		<div class="col6"></div>
		<div class="col6"></div>
	<div class="content">
		<div class="col4"></div>
		<div class="col4"></div>
		<div class="col4"></div>
