The Clear package comes with compiled assets. To view the project place the package contents in the root directory of your server or point a virtual host to the project directory and every thing should be working out of the box.

Note: To setup a virtual host follow this guide.

And once you are ready to customize the project follow the below steps.

Development tips

You need to run npm run dev everytime you want your changes to be applied but you can follow below tips to save time

File Compilation with watchers

Run the following command to set watchers for files so that they compile as soon as you save any changes

npm run watch

serve with hot reload at localhost:8080

The following command will create a local server at localhost:8080 with hot-module-replacement enabled, to reflect your changes without effecting the state of your application.

npm run hot

File compilation for production

Run the following command to compile all files with minification for production.

npm run production

Note: when using "dev" "watch" or "production" make sure that your application is in the root directory of the server.

If your files are being server from a sub folder in the server like localhost/vue then consider using the laravel-mix mix.setResourceRoot('/'); option.

if you are serving the files like localhost/vue then set mix.setResourceRoot('/vue/');

Eventhough you can run npm install we suggest you to run yarn install since the package contains yarn.lock file which lets you get the exact version of packages that we have used.
