I have a question regarding direct use of HTML DEMOS to start a new project.
I'm like to use a ready made demo (from demo1/dist folder) where I just removing from ready pages what i don't need.
Although the correct process is to generate the HTML from layout builder and use node.js, yarn, gulp, rename files from html to php and after you must be configure a lot of includes, for my case, I'm finding simpler use a ready-made template.
Is there any recommendation for using this process?
Maybe update and overwrite the assets folder or any other suggestions or recommendations I should consider?
Using the layout builder is not mandatory. You can use the original HTML template and partialize it as you wish. You can also put the assets folder in any path within your app.
If you customize the theme styles and js code you will need to recompile your assets folder with Gulp or Webpack.
Please note that the build tools are required only in the development environment just to compile the assets when the source folder files are modified. In the hosting/server deployment, you will only need the compile assets, no need to install the build tools dependencies there.
