Hi guys...
Btw, Roots is officially supported on Windows?
I've had a couple of problems to running it.

you dont have git installed
it will work if you install git
i must warn you roots is not a beginner tool though
so it might be a tough road ahead

yeah its a tough ride using windows for web dev
if you run a parallel install of ubuntu
it would help a lot
git bash apparently helps as well

that could be the issue
it might have a non-standard manner of resolving paths
try running it in the normal console or git bash

@jescalan can I use Pug with Roots?
Sorry for asking so many questions
Jeff Escalante
@jescalan
Apr 04 2017 19:29
yes, but jade and pug are the same thing
ah actually you would need to add a pug adapter to accord
should be very easy
just so you know, roots is not actively developed
and i am not working on it anymore
it's spiritual successor is called spike. there's a big note in the readme about this :)
