Jekyll + Foundation SCSS

Foundation self declares to be the most advanced responsive front-end framework in the world.

What's Included:

  • all the directories that Jekyll needs to compile your static site
  • jQuery
  • the entire foundation framework
  • a default html5 template in _layouts
  • a default nav bar under _includes
  • default index and 404 page, along with 3 other empty pages

How To 'Install' It

First, make sure you have Ruby and the Jekyll gem installed (gem install jekyll).

Then, just download the .zip or

git clone git@github.com:rememberlenny/Jekyll-Foundation-SASS.git

How To 'Run' It

Serving Jekyll To set up a local development server use the command jekyll serve. The files from _site will be served to http://localhost:4000 by default.

SASS -> CSS To compile the SASS files into CSS, run compass watch. Files from sass/* will render to _source/assets/css.

Preparing for build After you have compiled your SASS with Compass, its time build. Build for deploymentwith the command jekyll build. The files will render to _site.

Tutorial:

Layouts

The easiest way is to use the default layout (HTML5 Boilerplate -- _layouts/default.html). To use a layout, put this at the top of your page:

---
layout: default
title: YourPageTitleHere
---

Page-Specific HTML Content

etc...

Includes

If you're planning on reusing a few snippets of code on several pages, DRY (Don't Repeat Yourself)! Create an include HTML file and put it in the _includes/ directory. Kind of like a Rails helper.

To call an include in a page, just write

{% include yourincludename.html %}

For an example of this, see _layouts/default.html -- I include the nav.html snippet on the default layout, meaning it displays on every page that uses that layout.

Slideshows

Foundation's Orbit code is ready to plug into your website; the javascript to trigger it can be found in _includes/orbit.html -- just include that on the page where you want a slideshow, and then add a div#slideshow with image tags inside:

<div id="slideshow">
	<img src="something.jpg" alt="blah">
	<img src="somethingelse.jpg" alt="yeah">
	<img src="foo.jpg" alt="bar">
</div>

For more information see Zurb's Foundation documentation.

That's It!

Have Fun and make some cool websites.
