Using Slate's Build Engine

Slates Engine will build your SASS, Javascript and Images complete with live reload. You can even deploy your site with rSync.

Working with SASS

Slate was designed to encourage a modular workflow. The days of 10,000 line stylesheets are best left in the past.

Working with JavaScript

Easily work with external dependencies whilst keeping your own code modular and tidy.

Creating Favicons

Still just using a favicon.ico file? Your doing it wrong. Easily create favicons for all devices, browsers and operating systems.

Creating Image Sprites

Sprites used to be a real pain to create and code by hand. Slate uses Spritesmith to generate the spritemap complete with retina support and stylesheet generation.

Command Reference

Get the job done fast with the power of NPM scripts. No complex pipelines here, just pure speed.

Deploying your site

Deploying sites can be a pain with FTP. Slate contains a bash script to help you push new changes up fast and accurately.

Built with the Best
