Groundwork Documentation

The groundwork has already been laid. Reduce your custom theming time by using a Drupal-specific front-end framework with a powerful layout engine and sensible generic style defaults.

Use the starter theme as is, as a theme with simplistic/minimalistic design, or as a base theme for faster theme development.

Here are the key features of Groundwork 2.x:

  • HTML 5
  • Web accessibility optimized with ARIA roles
  • Bulletproof flexible grid system with 24 columns (units) as default.
  • Typography using modular scale.
  • True semantic markup with separation of style with content.
  • Comes with its own special font "Noceda Font Pro", a light, elegant and open sans-serif font built in with 304 Gwikons (Groundwork icons)
  • 17 regions with a special "Aside" region visible only in nodes.
  • Optimized typography for all standard elements
  • Supports both sidebars.
  • Powerful layout engine provides unlimited layout possibilities
  • Collection of preset CSS classes, mixins and style bundles.
  • Sexy configurable buttons
  • HTML5 polyfill to support older browsers
