Proteus - Gulp

Note: This project is no longer being actively maintained.

About Proteus

Proteus is a collection of useful starter kits to help you prototype faster. It follows the thoughtbot styleguide and includes our favorite front end tools.


  • Gulp: Converts files and task running
  • HAML: Simple template markup
  • Coffeescript: Write javascript with simpler syntax
  • Sass: CSS with superpowers
  • Bourbon: Sass mixin library
  • Neat: Semantic grid for Sass and Bourbon
  • Bitters: Scaffold styles, variables and structure for Bourbon projects.
  • Express: Lightweight Node web server

We also recommend Refills for prepackaged interface patterns.

Getting Started

Set up your project in your code directory

git clone https://github.com/thoughtbot/proteus-gulp.git your-project-folder
cd your-project-folder
git remote rm origin
git remote add origin your-repo-url

Install the dependencies

npm install

Run the server


Deploy to Github Pages

gulp deploy

Or install the Proteus gem and enjoy some shortcuts.

Stylesheets, images, fonts, and javascript files go in the /source/assets/ directory. Vendor stylesheets and javascripts should go in each of their /vendor/ directories. The source folders for images and fonts have a .keep file in them so they can be in the repo, but you can remove those files.
