A Yeoman generator for sketching in HTML, Sass, and JS

Getting Started

What is Yeoman?

Trick question. It's not a thing. It's this guy:


Basically, he wears a top hat, lives in your computer, and waits for you to tell him what kind of application you wish to create.

Not every new computer comes with a Yeoman pre-installed. He lives in the npm package repository. You only have to ask for him once, then he packs up and moves into your hard drive. Make sure you clean up, he likes new and shiny things.

$ npm install -g yo

He also likes to bundle up his Sassy friends. You only need to get his packaging tape once, and then he'll be set. His tape lives in the RubyGems package repository.

$ gem install bundler

Yeoman Generators

Yeoman travels light. He didn't pack any generators when he moved in. You can think of a generator like a plug-in. You get to choose what type of application you wish to create, such as a Backbone application or even a Chrome extension.

To install generator-sketch from npm, run:

$ npm install -g generator-sketch

Finally, initiate the generator:

$ yo sketch

Sketch also has some templates to make sketching easier. The following templates are available:


Quickly spin up templates of commonly used patterns!

$ yo sketch:template

Currently available templates:

  • Style Tile - A Responsive style tile, including the Sass required to power the basic tile. Copy taken from Fillerama. Run Template from the root of your directory.

Getting To Know Yeoman

Yeoman has a heart of gold. He's a person with feelings and opinions, but he's very easy to work with. If you think he's too opinionated, he can be easily convinced.
