Foundation Generator Build Status

Yeoman generator (1.0 beta) for Zurb Foundation v4, based on Foundation Sass Version

The Stylus version of Foundation!

While Sass works great with Ruby projects, I think Stylus makes more sense for Node.js web applications for it's native modular support using npm. I spent some time creating the a Stylus port of the Foundation framework, so for those fans of Node.js, you no longer need Ruby/Gem installed in your system to use Foundation! It is not officially adopted by Zurb yet, so if you like the idea, please help vote for it. I also published my fork of the Foundation (with Stylus port) to npm here while Zurb is making up their mind to adopt it. Starting from v0.2.0, this generator will use the Stylus port by default (you can still choose to use Sass version from the prompt).

fashionista makes it easy to integrate custom Foundation themes with express.js


First make a new directory, and cd into it:

mkdir my-foundation && cd $_

Then install generator-foundation:

npm install -g generator-foundation

Run yo foundation, optionally passing an app name:

yo foundation [app-name] [--base=my-base-foundation]

Finally, install npm dependencies:

npm install

Running the generated foundation project
