    Using zurb-foundation and a custom child theme

    So, to first quote the wordpress site directly:

    There are a few reasons why you would want to use a child theme:

    Welcome back. If you just found this, you might want to start with Part 1 before reading on.

    Okay, now we’re going into our custom theme folder (that’s based off the STARTER foundation sub-theme. Check out Justin’s Blog post, on how to set that up.

    In depth, but not too deep

    Okay, so you want to use RequireJS to manage and organize your JS and all the dependencies, in a modular way. You also don’t want deal with RequireJS caching the heck out of your JS changes during development, otherwise...Derpal..  but, you do if you’re ready for production.

    Also...  Compiling with Grunt (compass), component package management with Bower, and having it not interfere with Drupal. (.info files… we’ll get to that).

    Cheeky Monkey broke my Foundation cherry.  It’s been a pleasurable experience.

    Coming from frameworks like Zen Grids (+ Drupal Theme) and Susy2 Grids, I can appreciate (and need) some major control over the grids.  I have to say though, foundation does a bang up job of letting you control the ‘big stuff’ with ease, and still being able to get down into the nitty griddy(see what I did there?) -- and change what you like without too much fuss.

    Drupal, Drupal he’s our man.

    And then, oh yeah, there’s a Drupal theme for it!

    Back in August of 2014, I wrote an article Web Design Without Adobe Photoshop where I had finally decided to put the graphics giant, Photoshop, to the side and try some different tools for working with UI and Web design. I didn’t do this to be different, I really and honestly needed a more efficient way to design responsive layouts.

    So you just got the latest design from your graphics department. Now it’s up to you, the drupal developer, to take that design and turn it into reality. The problem is that they used some fancy pants new font and you need to make sure it works on every browser and mobile device.

    The parallax effect in simple terms is when something in the foreground appears to be moving faster than objects in the distance. One of the earliest uses of this effect for entertainment are the older 2D video games that had objects in the foreground moving at different rates than those of the background, producing the illusion of depth.

    Like many Drupal development shops we have fully embraced the excellent Omega theme. As a responsive base theme it helps us efficiently turn out great Drupal sites.

    The only thing that it is missing is built in support for Compass and SASS. I have been hearing rumours that the next version of Omega(4) will be adding this in, but in the meantime I am going to show you how to add them in about 5 minutes of time.

    It is great to see how fast the web designs are evolving these days. It seems that designers are pushing the realm of what is possible with each new project. Unfortunately, there is one thing that a lot of designers don't seem to realize. And that is as a web development company we are not always allowed to publish the fonts they used in their designs.


    Why can't we just use anything?


    Ok, disclaimer time, I am not a lawyer so if you want to confirm whether you can or can't publish ANYTHING to the web, please consult your attorney.
