Gem Version

Welcome to your foundation_front_end! This gem provides all the CSS and javascript assets needed to use ZURB Foundation 5 for your Responsive Web Design (mobile-friendly design).

If you haven't heard of ZURB Foundation you can check it out here. This is a great framework with seemingly unlimited responsive templates, and plugins in which you can take advantage.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'foundation_front_end'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install foundation_front_end


Add these lines to your application.js file inside your assets/javascripts folder:

//= require jquery
//= require jquery_ujs
# Add these lines 
//= require_vendor
//= require foundation.min
# In between these lines
//= require turbolinks
//= require_tree .

Add these lines to your application.css file inside your assets/stylesheets folder:

# Add these lines
*= require foundation.min
*= require normalize
# Before these lines
*= require_tree .
*= require_self

Then you are ready to rock!
