SilverStripe Foundation Theme

Foundation + Compass - Rolled up into a tidy little SilverStripe theme.

Based on the Foundation Compass Template.

Live Theme Demo

Working with the Theme

You can use the theme in two distinct ways.

  1. Manage the theme using Composer and update using composer update. This method should be used if you are using the theme for prototyping and do not need to edit the theme files directly.

  2. Use the theme as a starting point for your own custom theme. In this case, you're best off installing with git and committing changes to your git repo.

Composer Installation

"require": { "rywa/silverstripe-foundation": "1.1.*" }

Add themes/foundation to your .gitignore

Git Installation

cd themes

git clone git:// foundation

rm -rf .git (optional, to remove existing git repo)

Enable Theme

  theme: 'foundation'

in /mysite/_config/config.yml

Compiling and Updating Foundation

Then when you're working on your project, just run the following command (from within your themes/foundation folder):

compass watch

If you'd like to upgrade to a newer version of Foundation down the road just run:

bower update


SilverStripe 3.1.x

Optional (for working with Foundation 5)


While not required, you'll get the best experience with this theme by installing the foundationforms module below. The Foundation Forms module is also compatible with, and makes a great companion to, the User Forms module.

The Gist linked below is a custom Editor Config that I use. It is a single line of buttons with Foundation specific styles.

About Foundation

Foundation is the most advanced responsive front-end framework in the world. With Foundation you can quickly prototype and build sites or apps that work on any kind of device, with tons of included layout constructs (like a full responsive grid), elements and best practices.
