Setting up Foundation for WordPress

So I’m used to Bootstrap for development and sometimes it just doesn’t offer the functionality I need. I decided to install Foundation for WordPress for a client (DARKOH, you can see the final project here) and see how it goes.

Since I don’t have Ruby and my setup is based on Roots, the commands I will use are a little different than what they direct. The big deal is I downloaded Foundation from the GitHub and dragged it into my wp-content/themes directory.

  1. Use the command npm install to get your node_modules folder
  2. Use the command npm install -g bower into the directory
  3. Use the command bower install to get assets for bowser
  4. Use the command grunt build to build out the assets (scripts, fonts, etc)

Once you do that, grunt watch and you’re all set!
