Zero to bootstrap in under 60 seconds (not counting initial setup)

I needed to move quickly so I spun up a workspace at http://c9.io and installed the yeoman.io tools.

One time setup

npm install -g yo grunt-cli bower

Cloud9 IDE ships with tools for node.js, python and other platforms, quite useful since yeoman.io depends on node. I wanted to use the bootstrap generator so I installed it.

npm install -g generator-bootstrap

That's the end of the one time setup which took all of 6 minutes.

Day to day usage

I decided to start a bootstrap project, which was as easy as answering a few questions after running the command:

yo bootstrap

Zero to bootstrap  in under 60 seconds (not counting initial setup).
