Pattern Lab Node - Gulp Edition
The Gulp wrapper around Pattern Lab Node Core, the default PatternEngine, and supporting frontend assets.
This Edition comes with the following components:
pattern-lab/patternlab-node: GitHub | npm
pattern-lab/patternengine-node-mustache: GitHub | npm
pattern-lab/styleguidekit-assets-default: GitHub | npm
pattern-lab/styleguidekit-mustache-default: GitHub | npm
This Edition uses Node for core processing, npm to manage project dependencies, and gulp.js to run tasks and interface with the core library. You can follow the directions for installing Node on the Node website if you haven't done so already. Installation of Node will include npm.
Pattern Lab Node can be used different ways. Editions like this one are example pairings of Pattern Lab code and do not always have an upgrade path or simple means to run as a dependency within a larger project. Users wishing to be most current and have the greatest flexibility are encouraged to consume
patternlab-node directly. Users wanting to learn more about Pattern Lab and have a tailored default experience are encouraged to start with an Edition. Both methods still expect to interact with other elements of the Pattern Lab Ecosystem.
As an Edition, the simplist installation sequence is to clone this repository.
mkdir newApp && cd newApp git clone https://github.com/pattern-lab/edition-node-gulp.git npm install
This edition comes pre-packaged with a couple simple gulp tasks. Extend them as needed.
build patterns, copy assets, and construct ui
build patterns, copy assets, and construct ui, watch source files, and serve locally

To interact further with Pattern Lab Node, such as to install plugins or starterkits, check out the rest of the
gulpfile.js. You could also install the Pattern Lab Node Command Line Interface or learn more about the core API.
