Foundation 4 & 5 Harmony

Okay, so I'm in the middle of a couple of projects using Foundation 4 w/ Sass, I'd LOVE to start this new one using Foundation 5 but cannot risk the legacy projects falling apart. Does anyone have a good workflow potentially using Bundler or something else? I cannot put off this new project for too long but I'm a few weeks out on completing a legacy version project.

Any help, or a point in the right direction would be greatly appreciated!

I searched, and posted in one post on using Multiple Versions however that post doesn't seem to be getting any traction.

Hey Jack,

You can run multiple versions of Foundation without a problem. Foundation 4 uses the 'zurb-foundation' gem if you are using a ruby-based install (ex. with a gem file: http://foundation.zurb.com/docs/v/4.3.2/sass.html#multiple-versions), whereas Foundation 5 uses the 'foundation' gem CLI for managing Foundation projects and the 'foundation-rails' gem for Rails projects.

So essentially, if you run through the setup on http://foundation.zurb.com/docs/sass.html you shouldn't have any problems with your old projects.

The only situation where you should be concerned about conflicts is if your are running multiple versions of Foundation 4 on the same computer. In that case, you should you a Gemfile to lock the version for your project: http://foundation.zurb.com/docs/v/4.3.2/sass.html#multiple-versions

I hope that helps!
