This one at Mashable is a bit old, but got me thinking

If not Foundation, what else?

I know I’d prefer SASS over LESS because of my already burgeoning back-of-a-postage-stamp background knowledge

And so we reach Gumby (And the inevitable YouTube videos oh and tutorial like this at developerdrive)

Responsiveboilerplate sounded fine until I saw LESS

Important Tools

  • npm online repository for the publishing Node.js projects_and_ a command-line utility for interacting with this
  • bower a package manager for the web

Anyway, here’s the ‘go’ button

bower install gumby



The default txp theme on Github has a lot of partials

, _helpers.scss,
_code-prettify.scss ... etc.

…to adjust the gradients it’s all in /sass/core/_settings.scss

// text colours
$color-text: #333333;
$color-text-footnote: #888888;
$color-link: #114eb1;
$color-link-hover: #0066ff;
$color-link-visited: #183082;
// default gradients
$color-gradient-from: #eeeeee;
$color-gradient-to: darken($color-gradient-from, 6.5%);
$color-gradient-border: darken($color-gradient-from, 13.5%);

No overrides, just rewrite this lot : -)

NB config.rb is where input and output folders are specified

sass_path = "sass"
css_path = "css"
images_dir = "img"
fonts_dir = "fonts"

I was looking for yet another way to embed Flickr photos, not least because I have previously used a Flash-based widget. Anyway, there’s FlickrBomb from Zurb

<img src="flickr://Kevin Bacon" width="175px" height="175px">

except it won’t work :-(

<script src="/js/jquery.js"></script>
<script src="/js/flickrbomb-min.js"></script>
<script src="/js/app.js"></script>
<script src="/js/backbone.js"></script>
<script src="/js/underscore.js"></script>

All in before the closing body tag…

Anyway, meanwhile from flickrslidr
