Yeoman Generator for the Kittn Toolkit. Scaffolds and Prepare the Toolkit for you.


IMPORTANT: You need Node >= 7.6 for this generator.

You can use now Yarn with Kittn, instead off NPM.

The Generator will ask you some questions, at the end it will prepare the Project.


With Webpack you have to use NPM Script Commands

npm run uiimages

npm run htmlassets

New in 4.1.0

Autoprefixer and Babel now use the browserslist-variable from the package.json.

New in 5.1.0

If you want to create modules or components, you can use the new file generator. This creates the necessary Sass, JS and Structure Files and assigns them to the respective directories. The Sassfile you then only to the Application.scss connect. In the root folder of your project, you call up the file generator:

yo kittn:module


To make it easier to work with Craft or Wordpress, we have built contentbuilders. You will get the necessary plugins, CSS, JS and the modules to build the site after the installation.
