Foundation from github

Hi,
I'm using SASS with Coda. Even though I liked Compass it wasn't working with Foundation 5 out of the box, then the Ruby installation failed after a long and sweaty session that concluded in a message by my computer saying I was supposed to upgrade OSX to the latest version etc.. So I ended up using my default editor, Coda for compiling SASS. That tool costs $75, and no headache. It's a child's play compared to the complicated procedure described in the documentation:
http://foundation.zurb.com/docs/sass.html

I'm just putting the SCSS files in the root directory of the project and Coda compiles a nice CSS for me.

However this is only one of the reasons I m posing. The other one is: I grabbed the source from github for a new project:
https://github.com/zurb/foundation
and noticed the grid was breaking in FF and IE. I then tested foundation.css from your official doanload page:
http://foundation.zurb.com/
and it worked just fine.

So something was fishy. I suspected that master on github is a newer version than the one you make available for download on your site. So I ended up using an older version of the master that I grabbed about 6 weeks ago for another project. That worked and its all good now.

I know SASS is a new technology and tools are popping up as we speak but I'd like to suggest describing more alternatives on how to use Foundation with SASS in your documentation. For example the way I use it with Coda can be very helpful for people who are not fans of the Terminal. You could also make an SCSS library available for download on your website the same way you make the compiled CSS and JS libraries available. That'd save the trouble I just went through for grabbing an untested source code.

Cheers,
L.

Digging deeper into this issue I think I'd suggest making several versions available for download in both SCSS and complied format. e.g. the way Jquery lets you download earlier versions.

Luke, the master branch in the GitHub repo is considered the latest development version. It is different than what is available on the website and has the possibility of being less stable.

If you want a specific version, that's very easy to download from GitHub as well. Simply click the branch dropdown, then click the Tags tab. Then you can choose from any specific version, for example:

https://github.com/zurb/foundation/tree/v5.2.1

That's the way I use Foundation. I simply download whatever version I want from the repo.

Thanks Jake! I did realize later that I can get v5.1 from github. It would be nice to see these different downloads better explained in the documentation area and make them available on the website besides github.
