Foundation 5 with SASS in a simple way?

I have used Foundation 4 for a number of websites but would like to move to v5 for my next project. However, SASS installation looks more / differently confusing to the install with v4!?

I don't know what bower is - why the "bower" folder and does that folder need to be put onto the live site?

I am using ASP.Net with Visual Studio and have Web Workbench to process SASS files and minify them.

If I go ahead with the v5 installation / setup, will that leave my existing v4 sites alone, or will there be a clash?

On the live site installation, I just want a JS and a CSS folder containing minified files. Surely, I don't need to put the bower folder up as well??

The Foundation website always looks like it has lots of helpful information ... but I always have trouble understanding it :-( I do like using Foundation though!

Also, do I have to use the jQuery provided, or can I just use a CDN?

You can use Mixture app.

The best tool I've used so far in web design and sure will be in the future also.

Don't waste your time in the command line.

The CLI we built for the Sass version on Foundation 5 is the best way to go. Bower is a package manager which bundles up the files needed to use Sass with Foundation. This CLI does so much for you so you don't have to.

All about the files http://foundation.zurb.com/docs/sass-files.html

If you want to update your existing site to F5, it's pretty straight forward. Some few changes are to be made listed here http://foundation.zurb.com/docs/upgrading.html

The bower components files is not linked to so you would not upload it to a live site. It's just for production, updating and reference into the partials.

You can use jquey provided or a CDN as long as it's a more recent version
