Developers

You will need Git, Node, Bower and Gulp installed, before you start. It is also recommended, to have a running installation of WordPress.

Before you start, follow these steps.

  • git clone git@github.com:nstaeger/WordPress-UIkit-Starter-Theme.git into the wp-content/themes folder of your WordPress-installation.
  • cd WordPress-UIkit-starter-theme
  • npm install

Bower

This theme uses Bower to manage its dependencies like jQuery and UIkit. You can get the latest versions of those by running bower install in the themes folder.

Gulp

You can use Gulp to compile the less files and other stuff. Here are a few tasks, that come with the theme:

  • gulp compile-less Compiles the UIkit and theme-specific Less files into your CSS folder.
  • gulp copy-font Copies the UIkit font files to the fonts directory.
  • gulp minify-js Minifies all JS-files to an all.min.js.
  • gulp watch Watches the less/-folder for changes. If changes are made, the CSS-file will be recompiled.
