Html5 for Rails

Sensible Html5 defaults for Rails projects based on Html5 Boilerplate by Paul Irish, Divya Manian and many other fine folks.

(A rewrite of compass-html5-boilerplate that decouples the compass CSS library and adds Rails asset pipeline integration).


We're a bit light on documentation right now, but this should get you going...

In your Gemfile

group :assets do
  gem 'sass-rails'
  gem 'coffee-rails'
  gem 'uglifier'
  gem 'compass', '0.12.alpha.4'
  gem 'compass-h5bp'

gem 'haml-rails' #(Optional) to use haml

gem 'jquery-rails'
gem 'html5-rails', :git => 'git://'


$ bundle install

Run generator

$ rails generate html5:install


[1] If you use --template-engine=haml (or haml-rails), the install generator will remove your application.html.erb layout and generate application.html.haml.

[2] If you're upgrading from compass-html5-boilerplate you may need to remove config/compass.rb before you can run the generators.

[3] I'm still organizing stuff to be as flexible as possible, so some paths might change. Just make sure you re-run generators when upgrading.
