Light, powerful and free template for Joomla!™ for faster and easier web development.

How to use

This template is for local developing under Node.js® and Gulp. A good workflow is to code your template on localhost and if it is ready to deploy it on the live server. And for shure, you should have a Joomla!™ installation ready for this.


If Node.js® is installed, install Gulp via command prompt (e.g. console or terminal).

npm install -g gulp

Install BL4NK like a normal template in Joomla!™. Open your command prompt and go to the template directory. Install all dependencies.
