GravStrap Skeleton Incomplete

It is my understanding that Skeletons contain everything necessary to start using GRAV out-of-the-box. The GravStrap Skeleton in wholly incomplete and contains no GRAV core files and no instructions on implementing the Skeleton (only theme install instructions). It should be removed from Skeletons until the dev completes the package, as this will only confuse newbies. :slight_smile: … Just a suggestion.

Have you downloaded the full package here? I just did it and it works perfectly. Have you read this topic about skeletons?

I’m not a developer, so why would I look for a developer’s description? I’m an end-user, and the end-user description for Skeletons (located at the top of the Skeletons page on GRAV) is as follows …

“A Grav skeleton is an all-in-one package containing the core Grav system plus sample pages, plugins, configuration. These packages are a great way to get started with Grav. Simply download the ZIP file, extract it in your web-root, and you are ready to start using Grav!”

… And by that description, a core GRAV system means a User Folder and everything else need to make the Skeleton function right out of the box (so to speak).

So, how did you get your Skeleton to work without the Core GRAV files?

Just downloaded it from Works fine out of the box, it’s the complete package.

You probably downloaded it from GitHub directly. The GitHub repository for any skeleton is just the user/ folder, the rest gets added on automatically when the packages are prepared.

I downloaded the same version of the package as Giansimon noted above, which is NOT the full “Skeleton” package. Perhaps there was some miscommunication. However, I just double-checked the package on the GRAV site and it seems to be the correct package. THX!

I think you missed the admin plugin. This is a problem in the skeleton packages. You need to copy 4 plugins from the admin+core Package.

  • admin
  • login
  • email
  • form

No, most Skeleton’s by default don’t include the Admin plugin. I typically install it myself.

Everything with GravStrap looks up-to-date now. THX!
