npm run dev

npm run build

npm run scripts
Rebuild all JS Files except the Application JS File

npm run uiimages
Rebuild all Image Files for CSS, copy it to distribution, build Bitmap- and Vector Sprites.

npm run htmlassets
Copy all Imagefiles for Documentusage.

npm run template
Copy all or Generate the Template Files.

npm run favicon
Generate Favicons and the HTML Snippet (generated Files you will find in src/.system/)


To make it easier for you to work with Craft or Wordpress, we have also integrated Starterpacks. With the Starterpack you get a Contentbuilder (in the case of Wordpress you still need ACF 5 Pro) and the necessary templates, plugins (free), SCSS and JS files you need.

There is a rudimentary styling, not pretty but functional, as you will usually begin to adapt the existing elements to your project.

In order to activate the Starterpack, you have to decide for a Wordpress or Craft project and decide on the CSS methodology for ITCSS. Then you can install the Starterpack.
