How to use new CSS frameworks with Gowebly CLI?

The first thing you should do is verify that you are using Gowebly CLI version v1.9.0 or higher.

Next, start creating the configuration file:

gowebly init
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

The CLI will generate a .gowebly.yml file with the following config:

  module_name: project
  go_framework: default
  template_engine: default
  port: 7000
    read: 5
    write: 10

  package_name: project
  css_framework: default
  runtime_environment: default
  htmx: latest
  hyperscript: latest
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Now, just switch the css_framework option in the frontend block to bootstrap or bulma.

Now, start creating a project:

gowebly create
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

And Gowebly CLI create a new project with the selected CSS framework.

It works! 💥
