Quick Start

Install as a New Site

You can spin up a new install of Statamic along with this Starter Kit all in one command by using the Statamic CLI Tool

statamic new mysite statamic/starter-kit-doogie-browser

Follow the prompts and you'll be up and running shortly.

Install into an existing site

You can alternatively install Starter Kits into an existing Statamic 3.2+ site by running the following command while inside that install's root directory:

php please starter-kit:install statamic/starter-kit-doogie-browser

Customizing (optional)

The TailwindCSS included in this kit is compiled with PurgeCSS to reduce filesize on any unused classes and selectors. If you want to modify anything you'll need to recompile it.

npm i && npm run dev

To compile for production again:

npm run production
