Please open all issues with this template on the main Foundation for Sites repo.

This is the basic starter project for Foundation for Sites 6. It includes a Sass compiler and a starter HTML file for you.


To use this template, your computer needs:

This template can be installed with the Foundation CLI, or downloaded and set up manually.

Using the CLI

Install the Foundation CLI with this command:

npm install foundation-cli --global

Use this command to set up a blank Foundation for Sites project with this template:

foundation new --framework sites --template basic

The CLI will prompt you to give your project a name. The template will be downloaded into a folder with this name.

Manual Setup

To manually set up the template, first download it with Git:

git clone projectname

Then open the folder in your command line, and install the needed dependencies:

cd projectname
npm install
bower install

Finally, run npm start to run the Sass compiler. It will re-run every time you save a Sass file.
