Congrats! You have received a coding challenge from a potential employer. Or, you have a comittment-free rainy weekend to hack on a new, green-field coding project.
What's the best way to get started? Don't get stuck with a long, boring setup. Even copying and pasting some old code could work... but how about getting everything ready in a couple of commands?
git clone ivanoats/modular-boilerplate
cd modular-boilerplate && npm install && bower install
app/js/app.js in your favorite editor and start writing some code!
If anyone is interested in me turning this into a Yeoman generator, please let me know.
