  • OK, I found a solution for this. You have to use curl instead of wget. Also I use a different download location "curl -o boilerplate.zip codeload.github [com]/h5bp/html5-boilerplate/zip/master". You have to remove the [] from URI. Youtube doesn't allow URI in comments.

  • Hi Jeff! First off all thanks for this great tut. It is always a pleasure listen to you! But i've got one question about this. In Alfred 2 there's one thing I dont get use to by trying the same thing you did. If I type "wget -O boilerplate.zip [githubaddress]/h5bp/html5-boilerplate/archive/master.zip" in the script part to download html5boilerplate, nothing's gonna happend. My folder's still empty. If I do the same thing in terminal it works perfectly. Did you know the issue here?

  • Kind of unrelated, but in PHPStorm: New Project -> KickStrap (soon to be ZURB Foundation). All files set up instantly (you can even choose LESS, Stylus)… I'm a sublime fan too, but I would have preferred a cross-platform tutorial. Why not use the file templates package? And wouldn't it be possible to to use Fetch to do all this, or if not, make a sublime plugin? I use Mac at home when I need it, but we use Windows at work. So cross-platform is really important these days for me.

  • Got really excited watching this and marched off to buy Alfred (which is a really tasty app btw). However I have checked and double checked what you've done on screen and I cannot get it to create a folder (let alone a directory). I'm running mountain Lion and I've never knowingly run a shell script before (is there something I need to enable?). I genuinely have checked that every letter (and as far as I can tell every space between words) is what I'm seeing in the video.. any thoughts Jeffrey?
