Quick Start

To start using this product you will need to import some files in your current project or start from scratch using our template (scroll down in this page to view it).


Local Development

If you do not want to use our template as base for your project, and want to integrate our template into your own project, please skip this part and the Live production one, and go straight to Packages. You might also find useful this link here.

Live Production

NOTE! Creative Tim unfortunately cannot help you with deploying your app.

One of the recurrent issues with our products is the fact that when deploying, you will need to delete the homepage prop from inside the package.json file, or in some cases, you will need to configure it to your own domain.

These are some free open source tutorial on how to deploy a Javascript app on some servers. Please note that your project might need some additional configs to deploy it on these servers:

Packages

If you want to add our template over your own project, please add all contents of the packaje.json file to your own package.json file.

You will also need our configs from the scripts area of the .html files and also tailwind.config.js.

CSS

To get our look, if you’ve started a new app, you will need to import our styles inside your app like so (in our case, these are added inside each .html file, in the head part of the file):

    <link
      rel="stylesheet"
      href="./assets/vendor/@fortawesome/fontawesome-free/css/all.min.css"
    />
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="./assets/styles/tailwind.css" />

Important Globals

Notus Javascript employs a handful of important global styles and settings that you’ll need to be aware of when using it, all of which are almost exclusively geared towards the normalization of cross browser styles. Let’s dive in.

Responsive meta tag

This product is developed mobile first, a strategy in which we optimize code for mobile devices first and then scale up components as necessary using CSS media queries. To ensure proper rendering and touch zooming for all devices, add the responsive viewport meta tag to your <head> inside all of the *.html files.

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, shrink-to-fit=no" />
