The following instructions assume that you have already installed Node.js on your computer. If this is not the case, please download and install the latest stable release from the official Node.js download page. If you are using Homebrew, you can also install Node.js via the command line:
$ brew install node
Notice: It is important that you install Node in a way that does not require you to
Once you have Node.js up and running, you will need to install the local dependencies using npm:
$ npm install
npm run build
Bower doesn't have any dependencies here, so you need to manually create the folder "bower_components" so npm doesn't crash.
npm run watch
Watches the assets for changes and runs the appropriate Grunt tasks. Also starts a Livereload server that will push the changes to your Vanilla installation automatically.
