I recently recorded a screencast which details how to convert a theme—from start to finish—from SlateCMS to CleanSlate in 30 minutes. We used the 2012 Holiday Card site for the recording.
Even if you're not coming from SlateCMS, this screencast will give you a good overview of how to convert either HTML files or a template from a different CMS to CleanSlate.
The screencast covers the following:
- CleanSlate developer documentation and our Getting Started guide. (1:55)
- Introduction to the CleanSlate Toolkit. (2:15)
- Directory structure for a CleanSlate theme and Our Rules. (4:38)
