HappySeed Splash Install

What does this do?

The happy_seed:splash generator depends upon the happy_seed:bootstrap generator and will prompt you to run it if it hasn't already.

  • Installs a splash screen with sign up for the mailing list.
  • Installs a base styling for the splash screen
  • Installs a splash controller which can used to signup for a Mailchimp mailing list.

Why do you want this?

This is a quick framework to get up a marketing page for your application, and a way to start collecting email addresses. Everyone wants an interest signup page ASAP.

The splash controller uses a seperate splash layout, which lets you isolate the design of the splash page from the overall content and look and feel of your application.
