A gem to make it even easier
Just run this to install it:
gem install proteus-kits
Then pick the project you want to start (i.e. Middleman)
proteus new middleman your-project-name
We've also included some handy shortcuts for you to use in your kit:
: Installs dependencies
: Runs the server
: Deploys your site to Github Pages
- What's up with the name?
- Proteus was an early Greek sea god and a shapeshifter. The English word "protean" means "able to do many things, change easily, versatile". We use static site generators to prototype apps and sites quickly, so it seemed like a good fit.
- I found a bug / Have an improvement / Want to help
Great! The best way to make the kits better is to open an Issue on that kit on Github. Bonus points if you submit a Pull Request to fix a problem. Ask @joshuaogle if you have any questions on where to get started.
- My favorite generator isn't listed!
We'll be adding more as we find ourselves using more of them. Can't wait? Put together a template that includes the tools listed above and
open a pull request
adding it to the list.
