1. Create the Project Directory
First, create a new directory for your site:
$ mkdir my-site
2. Install Jigsaw via Composer
Next, navigate to your new project directory and install Jigsaw using Composer:
$ cd my-site $ composer require tightenco/jigsaw
3. Initialize your Project
Finally, from your project directory, run Jigsaw's
init command to scaffold the default directory structure:
$ ./vendor/bin/jigsaw init
Alternatively, get up and running quickly by using a starter template, which starts you off with a fully-configured, professionally-designed site, ready for you to customize with your content. You can use one of Jigsaw's built-in templates for a blog or an open source documentation site, or use a third-party template.
$ ./vendor/bin/jigsaw init blog
$ ./vendor/bin/jigsaw init docs
By default, Jigsaw gives you the following directory structure:
At the root of the directory, Jigsaw provides a
config.php file where you can specify configuration settings for your site, along with
webpack.mix.js for settings related to compiling your assets.
Next, learn about building and previewing your site.

/source, one prefixed with an underscore? Find out in the Compiling Assets section.
