Importing Gulp Tasks
You don't have to use our gulp pipeline, just import the task into your own
You can fork this example project to see an example of how to import Semantic UI tasks into your project.
npm install normally will launch an interactive installer, to allow this installer to run without user interaction include a special flag
autoInstall: truein your
Right-to-left (RTL) Languages
Including the flag
rtl:true will build Semantic UI using RTLCSS.
To build both LTR and RTL versions use the flag
Prototyping with Semantic UI
Component repos are released on NPM and as tagged releases on GitHub.
Check the list of repos available under Semantic Org on GitHub
Each component's release notes will automatically update with the relevant notes for that component from the main release.
LESS Only Distribution
A special distribution Semantic-UI-LESS is available for projects that use custom integrations and do not require our build tools.
semantic.less is available in all releases as an entry point for importing multiple components from other LESS files.
If you need to import individual components, you should scope each import to avoid inheritance issues.
Running Docs Locally
Download Docs Server
The easiest way to get Semantic UI docs is to clone the repo
Semantic UI's documentation is written in Docpad an amazing static site generator built in NodeJS
A Note About Paths
Semantic UI's build tools include two special commands
serve-docs for use with the documentation. These will pass changes from the ui/ folder directly to a live docs server.
These gulp tasks expect two sibling folders
The first time you run docs you will need to build the whole project once
Run Docpad Server
Serve UI to Docs
You can then continue to make modifications to UI and "serve" these files to a live docs instance to see your changes immediately
If you are managing your documentation you can automatically deploy to GitHub Pages using a built in docpad gh-pages plugin
For more information about GitHub Pages, check out the docs on GitHub
Custom Docs Paths
Doc task paths are specified in a file
tasks/config/docs.js and can be adjusted to use any folder set-up necessary for your project.
