Using Compass in your Drupal project

15
Jan
2013

Back in the day I used to roll with good old CSS and it did the job. Mostly because it didn't need any special maintaining and the code was simple.

Things changed when I first started working on some more beefy projects. Changing of various stuff followed by constant modifying of css was truly a pain in the ass, you ask why? Simply because there was so much css that maintaining caused severe pain in my head.

I'm sure a lot of people would agree that CSS can easily become a mess, no matter how careful you are.. Although Compass won't solve this problem completely, it will make your work more comfortable.

This article should serve as an informative post to all you guys writing regular CSS to consider using a preprocessor.

What is Compass?

A quote from the official website "Compass is an open-source CSS Authoring Framework" which pretty much sums it up.

Think of it as a CSS with extras or just CSS having Tom Selleck's moustache.. Wait what ?

19 Base Themes for Drupal

26
Oct
2009

Drupal theming can be much faster and easier when you use base (starter, parent) theme as a foundation. A base theme usually has nearly no css styling, provides theme regions, advanced features, and its purpose is to enable you to create new themes fast, focusing on changing design to code.

Base Theme Classics

Zen
Zen is the ultimate starting theme for Drupal. If you are building your own standards-compliant theme, you will find it much easier to start with Zen than to start with Garland or Bluemarine. This theme has fantastic online documentation and tons of code comments for both the PHP (template.php) and HTML (page.tpl.php, node.tpl.php).

Framework
Framework is a blank canvas for theme developers. Use Framework as a user friendly starting point to help facilitate your theme development.
