Local PurpleLine development

For developing and deploying new PurpleLine styles. If you want to use PurpleLine in a project, all you need to do is include a link to it in the head. See docs for more info.

Setting up PurpleLine

PurpleLine runs on the CSS framework Foundation. These instructions are adapted from Foundation's manual install process.



  • Clone this repo and cd into it.
  • Create a bower_components directory and cd into it.
  • Add purpleline-foundation as a submodule named foundation: git submodule add -f foundation
  • Compile CSS with Compass: compass watch

DO NOT commit bower_components/foundation. (See here for helpful information on how to remove files that have already been committed.)
