Fast front-end web app build tool with simple declarative config and seamless incremental compilation for rapid development.
Install Brunch with a simple node.js package manager command:
$ npm install -g brunch
- Create a new Brunch project:
brunch new [--skeleton url]
- skeleton specifies a skeleton from which your application will be initialized. The default skeleton (dead-simple) doesn't have any opinions about frameworks or libraries.
- brunch.io/skeletons contains over 50 boilerplate projects, which you can use to init your app from.
- Develop with Brunch:
brunch watch --server
- tells Brunch to watch your project and incrementally rebuild it when source files are changed. The optional server flag launches a simple web server with push state support.
- If you use OS X and want brunch to show system notification every time compilation error happens, you will need to install terminal notifier:
brew install terminal-notifier
- Deploy with Brunch:
brunch build --production
- builds a project for distribution. By default it enables minification.
- Visit brunch.io
- Read brunch docs
- Follow us on Twitter: @brunch
