HTML5 Boilerplate

HTML5 Boilerplate is a professional front-end template for building fast, robust, and adaptable web apps or sites.

This project is the product of many years of iterative development and combined community knowledge. It does not impose a specific development philosophy or framework, so you're free to architect your code in the way that you want.

Quick start

Choose one of the following options:

  1. Download the latest stable release from html5boilerplate.com or a custom build from Initializr.
  2. Clone the git repo — git clone https://github.com/h5bp/html5-boilerplate.git

Features

  • HTML5 ready. Use the new elements with confidence.
  • Cross-browser compatible (Chrome, Opera, Safari, Firefox 3.6+, IE6+).
  • Designed with progressive enhancement in mind.
  • CSS normalizations and common bug fixes.
  • IE-specific classes for easier cross-browser control.
  • A default print stylesheet, performance optimized.
  • Mobile browser optimizations.
  • Protection against any stray console.log causing JavaScript errors in IE6/7.
  • The latest jQuery via CDN, with a local fallback.
  • The latest Modernizr build for feature detection.
  • An optimized Google Analytics snippet.
  • Apache server caching, compression, and other configuration defaults for Grade-A performance.
