+### Install Grunt and Bower
+**Unfamiliar with npm? Don't have node installed?** [Download and install node.js]( before proceeding.
+From the command line:
+1. Install `grunt-cli` and `bower` globally with `npm install -g grunt-cli bower`.
+2. Run `npm install`. npm will look at `package.json` and automatically install the necessary dependencies.
+3. Run `bower install`, which installs front-end packages defined in `bower.json`.
+When completed, you'll be able to run the various Grunt commands provided from the command line.
+### Available Grunt commands
+* `grunt` — Clean, Compile LESS to CSS, concatenate and validate JS, build documentation.
+* `grunt dist` — Clean, Compile LESS to CSS, concatenate and validate JS for plugin only.
+* `grunt docs` — Clean, build documentation only.
+* `grunt watch` — loads LiveReload, connects, and watches all assets.
+* `grunt zip` — Creates a zip of `/dist` and places it in `/download`.
