Whats does What?

Clarkson Theme uses Gulp as its build system and NPM to manage front-end packages.

  • Gulp build script that compiles both Sass and Less, checks for JavaScript errors, optimizes images, and concatenates and minifies files to dist directory
  • BrowserSync for keeping multiple browsers and devices synchronized while testing, along with injecting updated CSS and JS into your browser while you’re developing
  • No Framework, roll your own!
  • Twig Templating via Clarkson Core
