Gromf: WordPress boilerplate using Foundation 5(based on Roots.io)

Hi! I've been using Roots starter theme(http://roots.io/) for a few projects now(check it out, it's awesome), but since Foundation(SASS) is more my style than Bootstrap(LESS) I decided to fork Roots and customize it to make use of Foundation 5 and Gulp.js(instead of Grunt).

I'm not trying to do a Roots take-over here, but I thought sharing it here would be a good thing in case someone else wanted a Roots.io + Foundation 5 boilerplate/starter-theme.

Use, fork, pull:

Gromf: +1
Looks and sounds good. I'm currently not using WP, but if I do, I may wanna take a closer look ...

Is this based on Roots 7.0 or Roots 6.5?

Good question @Palaniappan P
What's diff between 7.0 and 6.5 ?

Simen Schikulski over 5 years ago

Palaniappan P: Based on 6.5, but I'll update to 7.0 when 7.0 gets finished.

For whats new in 7.0 check out the 7.0 progress on github:

Hello,
Is there a support for IE8 : media queries and REM ?

Thank you !

Does anyone have suggestions for the best practices to use with MAMP & Codekit?

Simen Schikulski about 5 years ago

Gromf is not updated for Roots 7.0! https://github.com/schikulski/gromf

Nicolas, not out of the box, but I've been using a guide from this forum to make Foundation 5 work with IE8 an a few websites.

Phil, not sure what you mean. MAMP is a server stack, CodeKit an editor. If you mean in terms of Gromf just follow the instructions for installing on github.

Started with Roots vanilla for about 10 sites, until finding this Gromf theme. Sass > Less, Foundation > Bootstrap, Gulp > Grunt. Takes Roots, which GREAT, and makes it better in every way.
