Okay, so it’s a bit like casting spells, but when everything’s up and running (Windows or OSX, so cmd or Terminal, and got Ruby smiling on both …actually with OSX being the biggest pain to get the right version)
On OSX, best way to update Ruby is with RVM …which in turn requires Homebrew, installed with
ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.github.com/Homebrew/homebrew/go/install)"
…which is why, despite OSX actually shipping with Ruby (an old version), this presented a few challenges!
Need Bower, too:
[sudo] npm install -g bower grunt-cli
As per this video Getting started with SASS from Zurb
foundation new project_name --libsass
This is the preferred way with Foundation 5 because it’s faster… although the Compass instructions are even easier
foundation new MY_PROJECT
This is as per foundation.zurb.com/docs, although there’s some business around updating gems
Getting Compass to watch is as simple as cd-ing into the main sites folder and typing:
For example, customizing the appearance of a navbar
Obviously the route is SASS …but where to put the customisations? It seems that the way is to use a separate partial called something catchy like overrides
Actually, that’s not quite right, as I posted on the Foundation Forum
Overrides needs to appear first!
