# Developing with NPM & Grunt

Conversions uses NPM packages for dependencies such as Bootstrap, Font Awesome, Slick, Grunt modules, and so on. All packages can be found in the /node_modules folder. Grunt is used as a taskrunner to compile SCSS, concatenate CSS/JS, autoprefix CSS, minify, and copy files. The following explains the usage and workflow.

1. Prerequisites: Install Node.js, Ruby, and Sass

To start with, you need Node.js installed on your computer globally. If you’ve already done this skip this. If not: You have to install Node.js (comes with NPM) before you can proceed. To install Node.js visit the node.js website for the latest installer for your OS. Download and install it.

Sass compiling tasks require you to have Ruby and Sass installed. If you’re on OS X or Linux you probably already have Ruby installed; test with ruby -v in your terminal. When you’ve confirmed you have Ruby installed, run gem install sass to install Sass.

2. Install via Git or Manually Download

Open a terminal go to the location where you want to install Conversions:

// Open a terminal go to the location where you want to install Conversions:
cd path/to/location/

// If needed create the proper folder:
mkdir conversions

// Now pull Conversions via GitHub with:
git clone https://github.com/jjs2484/conversions.git 

3. Install NPM Dependencies

To install all dependencies listed in package.json, open your terminal, browse to the location of your Conversions theme folder and run:

npm install

Below is a mini NPM cheatsheet to update, audit, and list all packages installed.

// Update production packages 
npm update

// Check for outdated packages 
npm outdated

// Install the latest (major) version of a package
npm install [-g] [<pkg>...]@latest --save

// NPM audit security report
npm audit

// List all packages
npm ls  

3. List of Running Grunt Commands

Gruntfile.js is located in the theme’s root directory and contains preconfigured Grunt tasks. Below is a short description of each task and the command to run them.

// Run all commands in sequential order:
grunt all
