Getting Started

Nesta Boilerplate is simple to setup and comes with baked-in support for HTML Boilerplate, Compass (and Sass/Haml), Semantic GS, Capistrano, and jQuery.

First things first, learn about Nesta then get started like so: $ git clone $ cd nesta-boilerplate $ bundle $ shotgun

Then point your browser to And voila, you're rockin' some Nesta Boilerplate goodness.

By default, Capistrano is setup to deploy from your current directory, no need to setup a git repo if you don't want. I would, however, recommend creating one and modifying config/deploy.rb to use git.

Also, you'll want to edit config/deploy.rb with all of your server-specific info.
