This section guides you to install all required software and libraries in order to fully utilize Metronic for your projects.

Install Node.js

Node.js® is a JavaScript runtime built on Chrome's V8 JavaScript engine. Node.js is required in order to run the Metronic build tools. Download the latest version of Node and install it:

Install NPM

Npm is the package manager for JavaScript and the world’s largest software registry. Npm is a separate project from Node.js, and tends to update more frequently. As a result, even if you’ve just downloaded Node.js (and therefore npm), you’ll probably need to update your npm.

npm install --global npm@latest

Verify that npm in successfully installed, and version of installed npm will appear.

npm --version

Install Yarn

Yarn is a package manager for your code. It allows you to use and share code with other developers from around the world. Yarn does this quickly, securely, and reliably so you don’t ever have to worry.

npm install --global yarn

Verify that yarn in successfully installed, and version of installed yarn will appear.

yarn --version

yarn upgrade
I run a team of 20 product managers, developers, QA and UX resources. Previously we designed everything ourselves. For our newest platform we tried out Metronic. I cannot overestimate the impact Metronic has had. It's accelerated development 3x and reduced QA issues by 50%. If you add up the reduced need for design time/resources, the increase in dev speed and the reduction in QA, it's probably saved us $100,000 on this project alone, and I plan to use it for all platforms moving forward.
The flexibility of the design has also allowed us to put out a better looking & working platform and reduced my headaches by 90%. Thank you KeenThemes! Jonathan Bartlett, Metronic Customer
