Ruby

What is it?

It's a programming language. Like python, perl, php, etc

How does it fit into Foundation?

It's installed in OS X by default. It is a prerequisite for rubygems. Rubygems allows you to install 'gems', little pieces of software made in the ruby language. Zurb has (quite awesomely) made a Foundation ruby gem (software) for us that lets us quickly set up a project quickly (I mean QUICKLY) running only a few commands in the terminal.

Node

What is it?

It's a programming language. Like python, perl, php, ruby. It's basically javascript that's run server-side instead of client-side.

How does it fit into Foundation?

Like Ruby is a prerequisite for rubygems, Node is a prereq. for NPM (node package manager). NPM let's us quickly add pieces of software (Much like ruby gems, but written in javascript) to our project folders to aid us in creating websites or applications faster. The SASS guide found at http://foundation.zurb.com/docs/sass.html uses NPM to install bower and grunt...two pieces of javascript software that aid in creating websites/applications.

Git

It's a version control system. A way of saving your project at as many points as you want, among other things.

How does it fit into Foundation?

I'm not really sure why the SASS guide says you need it to already have it installed. But if you're making websites or applications, I would highly recommend learning Git. You can work on your website. Save your progress. Try something new that won't affect the save. Go back to the save if what you tried didn't work out. Or even merge what you tried out into your saved spot. <-- That's a super simple explanation.

There are droves of free information on all these, honestly. And much information supplied by much smarter people than I.

Brian, I would never laugh at you, man.

Have you been using Foundation in Windows? To be honest, you don't NEED Git, Ruby, Node. You can just follow this guide: http://foundation.zurb.com/docs/css.html

That guide will walk you through how to download the necessary CSS for the foundation grid and pre-made classes. It will also, just like the page describes, give you a ZIPPED archive folder with everything you need nicely packaged in there. I.E. Javascripts, sample Index.html page, and more. Look over how the folders/files are structured. Your site should start out the same.

I can't tell you where in OS X you should create a project folder...I use Linux. I imagine it would depend on whether you're using your computer as a server (using MAMP or something) or just working on a project folder on your computer that you FTP files elsewhere to (like godaddy or something). If you've installed a server (again, look at MAMP), I would assume there would be a public_html (or similar) folder for you to put projects into.

Hey Brian,

I'm pretty sure Ruby is installed by default on OS X. You can always open up a terminal and use ruby --version or which ruby to double check. Once you're sure it's installed, you can install the Foundation Ruby gem, per the http://foundation.zurb.com/docs/sass.html page. gem install foundation

So, you still need Git and NodeJS. I would highly recommend looking into Homebrew for OS X. https://github.com/Homebrew/homebrew and http://brew.sh .....It's a package manager for OS X that will allow you to quickly install packages you need (NodeJS/Git) keep in mind that NPM (Node Package Manager) comes installed with NodeJS

Installing Node on OS X using Homebrew: http://thechangelog.com/install-node-js-with-homebrew-on-os-x/
Essentially uses the homebrew command brew install node

Installing Git on OS X with Homebrew
brew install git

Now create your project and cd (I've assumed this whole time you're okay using the terminal) into your project folder and follow the directions on the getting started page you listed. The command foundation in foundation new your_project_name is provided by the foundation ruby gem you installed above.

You could always try requiring wp-blog-header.php in your partial: headerMedium.php.

<?php
/* Short and sweet */
require( './wp-blog-header.php' );
?>
