Getting Started


The theme includes a custom Webpack file, which can be used to quickly recompile and minify theme assets while developing or for deployment. You'll need to install Node.js before using Webpack.

Once Node.js is installed, run npm install to install the rest of AppStack's dependencies. All dependencies will be downloaded to the node_modules directory.

npm install

Now you're ready to modify the source files and generate new dist/ files. AppStack is using webpack and webpack-serve to automatically detect file changes and start a local webserver at http://localhost:8080.

npm start
Build tools

Start a local webserver at http://localhost:8080 and detect file changes:

npm start

Automatically detect file changes without starting a local webserver:

npm run watch

Compile, optimize, minify and uglify all source files to dist/:

npm run build
Basic Template & Theming

This basic template can be used as a guideline for how to structure new pages while using AppStack. Some meta tags and our CSS & JS files are included inside the template.

The following themes are available:

  • classic
  • modern
  • corporate
