To help illustrate the tools on a real-world site, these exercises use a customized version of Michael Gilbert’s Responsive Starter Kit.

The two codebases are almost identical, except the one used in these tutorials has a small Node.js server script to help with testing some unique use cases (along with a few other tweaks).

Installing the codebase

To install the codebase, either clone the git repository by running git clone from the directory you want to install at, or download the source and extract it to the directory of your choice.

Install the dependencies

There a few dependencies the node server needs to run. Install them by running npm install.

Run the server

Once the dependencies have been installed, start the server via npm start (or node index.js if you prefer).

Once started, it will open a browser window with the ‘Responsive Starter Kit Pro’ page loaded.
