Probably everybody knows now that SAPO’s Ink framework is an awesome alternative to Bootstrap. And there’s also this great scaffolding tool called Yeoman, that if you don’t know, you should really check it out. The same also applies to Ink.
This generator creates a ready-to-use website layout using Ink. You can even choose from 11 available layouts (more coming soon), and start hacking right away with the basic dependencies already in place.
To install it , just type on your terminal (make sure you already have Yeoman installed first):
$ npm install -g generator-ink
Now create a folder for your project and
cd into it:
$ mkdir my_awesome_project && cd my_awesome_project
And now to start
generator-ink just run:
$ yo ink
If everything went well, you’ll be greeted with the layout choice menu:
Now it’s just a matter of choosing the layout that most adjusts to your needs, and hack it.
Need more site pages? No problem, there’s a sub-generator for that. Imagine we need to create an article page. Piece of cake! Just type:
$ yo ink:page article-page article.html
You just need to know the name of the layout (you can check all available layouts here), give it a name, and BAM! It’s there!
You can also contribute with your own layouts! Just make a pull request on Github and I’ll be glad to accept it!
