Yes, the repo link I provide works exactly with a simple

git clone
cd jam-garden-starter
erica push http://localhost:5984/mydb

I have been trying to perfect this for a while now. Kind of a terrible
life goal. We want the ability to really crunch the app js and css
down as well. Using the make command will do this and then we can
simply cut a release branch. Then who wants to use the released
minified version would do this:

git clone
cd jam-garden-starter
git checkout production-1.3
erica push http://localhost:5984/mydb

No dependencies need. All less and js small and tight.
