Please help Best way to install F5 With Compass and bower?

Hello,

I have made a couple of site's with Foundation, but Im new to Compass and Sass and bower. I want to try it but what is the best way to install end configure it. Because the documentation on the foundation site is not very extensive.

Im working on OSX 10.9

Well this is how i use my set up.

Fire up terminal and make sure you have the following installed:

  • Ruby v1.9.x
  • Node 0.10.x

From then you can go ahead and install the bower npm:

 $ npm install -g bower

Then install sass and compass gems, if you have not already using:

$ gem install sass
$ gem install compass 

Now, restart terminal, then cd to the root of your htdocs directory, because im using MAMP pro that is essntially /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/ then when youre there run:

$ foundation new <project name> 

It should install foundation and its dependencies for you. Of course you can take it forward by using Grunt and LiveReload to your advantage, but that depends on you.
