REDESIGN BBG WordPress theme based on the U.S. Web Design Standards
We're creating a Broadcasting Board of Governors WordPress theme based on 18F and U.S. Digital Services' proposed U.S. Web Design Standards.
U.S. Web Design Standards
The U.S. Web Design Standards is a library of open source UI components and a visual style guide for U.S. federal government websites.
These tools follow industry-standard web accessibility guidelines and reuse the best practices of existing style libraries and modern web design. Created and maintained by U.S. Digital Service and 18F designers and developers, the Web Design Standards are designed to support government product teams in creating beautiful and easy-to-use online experiences for the American people. Learn more about this project in their announcement blog post.
Design files of all the assets included on this site are available for download here: https://github.com/18F/web-design-standards-assets.
Setup for your local environment
- Install WordPress.
- Clone or download this theme into the wp-content/themes folder.
- We're using grunt to compile the SASS files on the fly, so you'll need to install the Grunt command line interface and you'll need to make sure SASS is installed. To install the grunt command line interface:
$ npm install -g grunt-cliThe next step is to install Sass.
$ sudo gem install sass
- From inside of the theme directory type:
$ npm install
- To start watching/compiling the SASS, type:
This will compile a human readable version of the CSS, a version of the CSS with vendor prefixes and the minified version for production (based on the Gruntfile.js)
