Responsive Text alignment is a must?

Here is how looks my app.scss file (and css output) ... even if set $include-html-classes to false i still get CSS file full of things that I don't think i need ... or is there anything important about them?

Hey Marek!

The meta classes, I believe, are used for some of the JS media queries. Some of Foundation's JS components will require them.

The utility classes are not required however they may help with text alignment, saving you CSS as you don't have to write your own. However if you don't want them you could remove them. Looking through Foundation's SCSS assets there doesn't seem to be an easy way to remove them apart from going into _type.scss and commenting out or deleting the relevant code.

thanks Wing-Hou,
i didnt want to edit what is inside bower_components folder so i have copied it to scss folder
I think there could be some variable for including it... for example
$include-html-javascript-classes: true/false
