Getting Started
This template is for local developing under Node.js® and Gulp. A good workflow is to code your template on localhost and if it is ready to deploy it on the live server (e.g. copy via sftp). And for shure, you should have a Joomla!™ installation ready for this.

Requirements

If Node.js® is installed, install Gulp via command prompt (e.g. console or terminal).
1
npm install -g gulp-cli
Copied!
    BL4NK (download latest version)

Customization

You can customize your template with your information doing the following steps.
    Unzip BL4NK
    Edit the templateDetails.xml
    Fill out all information
    Replace the following images (optional)
    template_preview.png
    template_thumbnail.png
    favicon.ico
    Zip the template folder again

Installation

Install BL4NK like a normal template in Joomla!™. Open your command prompt and go to the template directory. Install all dependencies.

npm install
Copied!
Run Gulp to compile, compress and build.

See the magic happen on your command line if you edit some files.

Working files

Let's start the work by coding in the following files.
    index.php (html)
    js/script.js (javascript)
    css/template.scss or .less (css)
The building files are stored in folder /build in your template directory.
