Better !default variables #2141

I've noticed that changing the styling for projects can be more cumbersome than necessary because of the initial Foundation variables. I am working on creating an improved _settings file that bases everything off of the $body-bg variable.

I'm hoping that this approach can be folded into Foundation in more places. Right now so many colors are hard coded, and so many colors can't be controlled like topbar dropdowns. This would also change the structure of setting things like
// $button-font-color: #fff; and // $button-font-color-alt: #333; if instead you had color: reverse-lightness($bg, 100%);

Now I know this system isn't perfect, but I think it would simplify the customization process significantly.


Awesome, how's the new settings file coming?
