Method 1: Automated Installer
Install the latest version of WordPress and Barebones with the automated installer.
git clone https://github.com/benchmarkstudios/barebones-automated-installer.git
chmod +x barebones-automated-installer/barebones
mv barebones-automated-installer/barebones /usr/local/bin
rm -rf barebones-automated-installer
Run the following command from your Sites folder, where the project_name will be used to name your site folder and theme.
Enter your admin password when asked (in order to install node modules), and you're done.
Method 2: Clone the Barebones Repository
Clone the Barebones repository into your WordPress /wp-content/themes/ directory:
git clone https://github.com/benchmarkstudios/barebones
To include all its optional submodules (Simple Grid included):
git submodule init
git submodule update
Using Gulp and Laravel Elixir
Install Gulp as a global NPM package, if you don't have it already on your machine:
npm install --global gulp
Install Laravel Elixir:
Edit your gulpfile.js to include additional tasks (check the Laravel Elixir documentation for further information).
... to compile
... to watch
... to minify
This will execute all the Gulp tasks on the gulpfile.js.
