HTML5 Boilerplate is a professional front-end template for building fast, robust, and adaptable web apps or sites.

This project is the product of over 10 years of iterative development and community knowledge. It does not impose a specific development philosophy or framework, so you're free to architect your code in the way that you want.

Quick start

Choose one of the following options:

  • Download the latest stable release fromhtml5boilerplate.com. This zip file is a snapshot of the
    dist
    folder. On Windows, Mac and from the file manager on Linux unzipping this folder will output to a folder named something like
    html5-boilerplate\_v7.3.0
    . From the command line will need to create a folder and unzip the contents into that folder.
mkdir html5-boilerplate unzip html5-boilerplate\*.zip -d html5-boilerplate
  • Clone the git repo —

git clone https://github.com/h5bp/html5-boilerplate.git
  • and checkout thetagged releaseyou'd like to use. The
    dist

    folder represents the latest version of the project for end users.

Install with npm:

npm install html5-boilerplate

or yarn:

yarn add html5-boilerplate

. The resulting

node\_modules/html5-boilerplate/dist

folder represents the latest version of the project for end users. Depending on what you want to use and how you want to use it, you may have to copy and paste the contents of that folder into your project directory.

Using our new create-html5-boilerplateproject, instantly fetch the latest npm published package (or any version available on npm) with

npx

,

npm init

or

yarn create

without having to install any dependencies. Running the following

npx

command installs the latest version into a folder called

new-site
npx create-html5-boilerplate new-site cd new-site npm install npm start
