BOOST enhanced boilerplate framework

BOOST is a Boilerplate framework that's kind of a best of everything that I find useful. There's a responsive grid (inspired by the 1kbgrid), form styling and many other useful bits and pieces.

Updates

  • 27/02/2012 - Improve typography based on calculations from http://gridlover.net, add some more mixins
  • 18/01/2012 - Added centred columns to the grid
  • 15/01/2012 - Massive overhaul of the CSS; now LESS is used for everything. I added a new grid system, adapted from the 1kbgrid & Zurb's Foundation grid & LOADS more
  • 26/11/2011 - Fairly major update: Separated boost.css into component parts for better manageability

CSS

BOOST uses the 'mobile-first' methodology & to find out more, please read the excellent post 'Mobile First' by Luke Wroblewski at http://www.lukew.com/ff/entry.asp?933

Grid calculations

There are some nifty calculations (by LESS) for the Boost grid that make creating your own grid setup ridiculously easy. If you're not happy with the structure that I created, please visit http://grid.mindplay.dk & use the tool there to create your own version of the grid.

HTML

  1. Mixture of '320 and up' & HTML5 Boilerplate.
  2. example.html has almost every element

Javascript

jQuery Plugins

  1. jQuery Geneology
  2. caroufredSel

Polyfills

  1. imgsizer.js - better responsive images in Internet Explorer (Find out more: http://unstoppablerobotninja.com/entry/fluid-images/)
  2. dd_belatedpng.js - transparent png support in IE6

To do:

  1. Add form validation markup, styling & js
  2. Add carousel markup & styles
  3. Output each LESS file into its own CSS file
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
