I was referring to the usage of Github versus Textgarden – the former allows for collaboration and forking, the latter is a repository of themes.

I’ve Github account and I’m aware what does it provide.

The point is if the theme authors do not at the end submit their themes to Textgarden, then one has to hunt for them at other places.

As bloke says, old front-side themes should be OK in newer releases.
I’ve just helped create this theme, it still needs some further work but it’s based on Bootstrap in you want a starting point for that particular framework. There is also this one for Bootstrap. I personally prefer Zurb Foundation to Bootstrap and I’d made a very early start on a theme for it, but not to the point where I can share anything. I’ve not used YAML.

Phil i like the minimal site theme! i have a site in mind that can use the minimal treatment.
On another note. How can I implement that side NOTE you have on the theme? And can an image be used rather than a word?
cheers

Re: theme's compatibility

@bici

The Minimum Theme side drawer thing needs a bit more work, which I’ll add at the weekend probably – been a busy week.

@everyone

Regarding the Textgarden thing, once I do a rebuild of the .com site (yes, it will happen) some of the issues there will be addresses. Personally I develop all my stuff using GitHub but I could probably push packaged releases to Textgarden at specific milestones. Hopefully when this is better linked to the .com family sites others will do the same.

I’ve worked on a few sites using Zurb Foundation (one with no plugins at all nor any forms – only requires a page template) and will share at some point on Github.

Now I’d like to tackle themes for Txp by using YAML and/or Foundation and wonder if in order to provide barebone template theme based on some CSS framework, it is enough to create the same set of {sections,pages,forms} as provided by e.g. Hive theme?

Do you recommend SASS/Compass when using Foundation?

Re: theme's compatibility

I use both Sass and Compass for my own development. Compass rocks.

Foundation doesn’t use Compass, it has its own set of mixins. Of course you could easily integrate Compass with it. I’d do that.

Thanks.

What about this ?

Do you recommend/use Foundation-4?
