Compass Html5 Boilerplate

HTML5 Boilerplate is a Compass extension based on HTML5 Boilerplate by Paul Irish. You can use it to kick-start fully compliant HTML5 applications. Setup your Rails applications with with fully integrated Haml and Sass/Scss templates that implement Boilerplate's functionality, or generate stand-alone Html5 Compass projects.

Browse html5boilerplate.com for the full workup.

Features

(In addition to Html5 Boilerplate itself)

  • Html5 Boilerplate stylesheets implemented as a modularized Compass library
  • Lets you pick and choose only the Boilerplate mixins and includes you want
  • Generates sass/scss partials to keep your stylesheets organized
  • Generates modularized haml layouts for Rails apps (header, footer, flashes, etc.)
  • Rails helpers to cleanly hide a little of Boilerplate's html complexity
  • Loads minified jQuery in production envs, but uncompressed version in development
  • Rails jquery-ujs driver installed and loaded along with jQuery and Modernizr
  • Setting API Key in google.yml will auto-load jquery from google (async)
  • Setting Analytics ID in google.yml will auto-load google analytics (async)
  • Uses content_for hooks to keep all your javascript and stylesheets in one place
  • Falls back to native Compass for stuff like clearfix and image replacement
  • Fully commented source, but the haml/sass output remains comment free
  • Not tested on animals

Rails Installation

First, make sure the following gems are in your Gemfile

gem "compass"
gem "haml"
gem "html5-boilerplate"

Then run the following

bundle install
compass init rails -r html5-boilerplate -u html5-boilerplate --force

(Using --force flag will overwrite any files that may already exist. In most cases this is probably what you want.)

(For a new project, I answer "Yes" to keep my stylesheets in app/stylesheets, but "No" for compiling them into public/stylesheets/compiled.)

Now remove your application.html.erb so that Haml can do its thing

mv app/views/layouts/application.html.erb app/views/layouts/application.html.old

Start your Rails server, and you're done!

Here's a list of the files that compass init installed in your Rails project:

app/views/layouts/application.html.haml
app/views/layouts/_flashes.html.haml
app/views/layouts/_footer.html.haml
app/views/layouts/_head.html.haml
app/views/layouts/_header.html.haml
app/views/layouts/_javascripts.html.haml
app/views/layouts/_stylesheets.html.haml

app/stylesheets/style.scss
app/stylesheets/partials/_base.scss
app/stylesheets/partials/_overrides.scss
app/stylesheets/partials/_page.scss
app/stylesheets/partials/_fonts.scss
app/stylesheets/partials/_media.scss

public/404.html
public/.htaccess
public/crossdomain.xml
public/robots.txt
public/humans.txt
public/apple-touch-icon.png
public/favicon.ico

public/javascripts/jquery.min.js
public/javascripts/modernizr.min.js
public/javascripts/plugins.js
public/javascripts/rails.js

config/compass.rb
config/initializers/compass.rb
config/google.yml

The Scss files above will automatically get compiled to your Sass compilation directory:

public/stylesheets/style.css

Note: If you already have a config/compass.rb file in your project, you may need to manually add the following line to the top:

require 'html5-boilerplate'

A few more points...

The haml will compile to the equivalent of html5-boilerplate's index.html, but with all comments stripped out, and some additional rails stuff like csrf_meta_tags, flashes and the Rails jquery-ujs driver.

You can set your own Google Analytics Account ID and your Google API Key either as ENV variables, or inside config/google.yml. (see that file)

This extension has only been tested on Rails3.

Stand Alone Installation

Use this if you're not using Rails, but still want compass and the html5-boilerplate sass libraries, It will create a simplified index.html (with haml source), but without the nice Rails helpers.

gem install html5-boilerplate
compass create my_project -r html5-boilerplate -u html5-boilerplate --javascripts-dir js --css-dir css

The --javascripts-dir and --css-dir flags are to keep consistent with the original project layout. If you omit them, be sure to edit your javascript and style tags accordingly in index.html.

This will create a my_project directory containing the following files:

index.html
index.html.haml
404.html
crossdomain.xml
robots.txt
humans.txt
apple-touch-icon.png
favicon.ico

src/style.scss
src/partials/_base.scss
src/partials/_overrides.scss
src/partials/_page.scss
src/partials/_fonts.scss
src/partials/_media.scss

js/jquery.min.js
js/modernizr.min.js
js/plugins.js

.htaccess
config.rb

Run compass watch my_project and the SCSS files above will automatically get compiled to your Sass compilation directory whenever a change is made:

css/style.css
