To use Kickstart, clone the Kickstart repository to a local folder on your machine.
cd some/project/folder git clone https://github.com/onenorth/kickstart
After the clone operation, navigate to the newly-create repository directory and install kickstart.
cd /some/project/folder/kickstart npm install
If you are creating a brand new project, once you've cloned the kickstart repository, all you need to do is run
npm start from the command line to begin a new project. This will install all required dependencies, then spin up a local web server that watches your files for changes.
If you are not interested in running a development web server, you can simply build the projects files without starting web server.
If you want to build a minified and optimized version of your project, you can do that by passing in the
--production flag when you build.
npm build --production
