#100DaysOfCode - Day 9: Blog resdesign... angular/material?
Happy halloween! Today, tomorrow, and through-out the week, I will be working on redesigning some of my website.
I’m currently looking at using angular/material, which is pretty straight forward and compatible with Jekyll pages on Github (what this blog runs on).
While I’ve got a ways to go, I’ve started drafting up some of the instructions for getting this setup, so I can transfer it to the README.md if that’s what’s decided on.
Installing Angular + angular/material
- Generate the app
ng new my-app-name
Prompts: - Y for routing - Styles: - LESS: lightweight and used by bootstrap, but not very dynamic and formatting is whitespace based - SCSS: lightweight and flexible, most popular amongst web developers - Stylus: Newer framework, reliant on Node, but preferred by developers such as Wes Bos that are very front-end focused. A bit more features with skipping variables
Add Angular Material
cd my-app-name ng add @angular/material
- Theme: Indigo Pink (or whichever)
Yfor setting up global Typography styles
Yfor animations (duh)
… I know there’s still a ways to go, but my wife and I are celebrating being 99 days from Feb 7th today (our forecasted “big day”), and celebrating halloween =) Happy coding!
