Installation #back to top


This section guides you to install all required software and libraries in order to fully utilize QuixNav for your project

Install Node.js

Node.js® is a JavaScript runtime built on Chrome's V8 JavaScript engine. Node.js is required in order to run the Metronic build tools. Download the latest version of Node and install it: nodejs.org/en/download/

Update your NPM

Npm is the package manager for JavaScript and the world’s largest software registry. Npm is a separate project from Node.js, and tends to update more frequently. As a result, even if you’ve just downloaded Node.js (and therefore npm), you’ll probably need to update your npm.

                            npm install --global npm@latest

Install all dependencies

If you want to update or develop this theme, you need to install all dependencies by running:

                            npm install

You may want to update the plugins used in this template

Install all dependencies

If you haven't yet run the

npm install
command, please run this command on this project root directory to install all dependencies

Install Gulp CLI

Install gulp-cli to make Gulp perform cli actions. To install gulp-cli, run this command

                            npm install gulp-cli --global 

Copy plugins

You have to copy all updated plugins to your project folder from node_modules. To copy all plugins together, run this comment:

                            gulp plugin

Generate Common.js

In order to simplify common scripts, we accumuluted the common scripts together. So you need to run a simple command to generate common.js. common.js contains jquery.min.js, bootstrap.bundle.min.js, metisMenu.min.js, jquery.slimscroll.min.js, bootstrap-select.min.js

                            gulp common_js

Now your plugins and scripts are updated. Enjoy!

Run following command to watch and build SASS

                            npm run watch

Path change

You may want to change your folder destination of outputed CSS or input SASS. In order to do that, just open the package.json file and update the script command's path as yours.

                            "watch": "node-sass --watch src/main/scss/main.scss src/main/css/style.css --source-map src/main/css/style.css.map"
