Greenkeeper Build Status

Hive logo


A website development framework built with Grunt and Sass, and incorporating jQuery UI. The theme styling is intentionally minimal to make re-skinning easier.

Supported web browsers

  • Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Safari and Opera the last two recent stable releases.
  • Internet Explorer 11.
  • Firefox ESR latest major point release.

Older versions of the above and other browsers may work, but these are the ones we verify.


Building this repository requires:


Installing required tools

The project uses Grunt to run tasks and Sass for CSS pre-processing. First make sure you have base dependencies installed: Node.js and Grunt. You can install Node using the installer and Grunt with npm:

$ npm install -g grunt-cli

Consult the Grunt documentation for more instructions if necessary.

Installing dependencies

After you have the base dependencies taken care of, you can install the project's dependencies. Navigate to the project's directory, and run the dependency manager:

$ cd hive-framework
$ npm install

npm installs Node modules for Grunt (you can also install via Yarn, instead of NPM, if you prefer).


This repository hosts sources and needs to be built before it can be used. After you have installed all dependencies, you will be able to run tasks using Grunt, including building:

$ grunt @[email protected]

Where the @[email protected] is either build or watch.

  • The build task builds the project.
  • The watch task will launch a task that watches for file changes; the project is then automatically built if a source file is modified.

Textpattern templates

Optional Textpattern CMS theme 'forms' and 'pages' templates are included, for reference. They can be found in the public/templates directory, and follow the structure expected by Textpattern themes.
