Frontendcore uses Yeoman to the installation. Yeoman is a Node application that will create the folder structure and get the dependencies for you.
Sass is a css preprocessor. CSS on its own can be fun, but stylesheets are getting larger, more complex, and harder to maintain. This is where a preprocessor can help. Sass lets you use features that don't exist in CSS yet like variables, nesting, mixins, inheritance and other nifty goodies that make writing CSS fun again.
Compass is an open-source CSS authoring framework which uses the Sass stylesheet language to make writing stylesheets powerful and easy. Experience cleaner markup without presentational classes. Compass mixins make CSS3 easy.
gem install compass
Sussy is a grid math system for sass. In a world of agile development and super-tablet-multi-magic-laptop-phones, the best layouts can’t be contained in a single framework or technique. CSS Libraries are a bloated mess of opinions about how to do your job. Why let the table-saw tell you where to put the kitchen?
gem install susy
Yeoman helps you to kickstart new projects, prescribing best practices and tools to help you stay productive. To do so, we provide a generator ecosystem. A generator is basically a plugin that can be run with the
yo command to scaffold complete projects or useful parts.
npm install -g yo
This is the real installation of frontendcore, providing you the structure and everything configured just to start using it.
npm install generator-frontendcore
Finally, initiate the generator:
$ yo frontendcore
