Installing Vendor plugins with Npm and Gulp
Follow this 4 easy steps to install 3rd party plugin and use it in your Silicon based project:
- Open your Terminal window and navigate to the root directory of your project (where you package.json file is located).
- Run npm install <package name> --save. This command does two things: downloads package to
node_modules folder and writes dependency to your
package.json file inside
- Run gulp vendor. This command will clean
assets/vendor folder and move all the dpendencies that are listed in
package.json file in
dependencies object to
assets/vendor including your newly downloaded plugins.
- And last step is to link to plugin's scripts and styles in your HTML document.
