Foundation is the most advanced responsive front-end framework in the world. Quickly go from prototype to production, building sites or apps that work on any kind of device with Foundation. Includes a fully customizable, responsive grid, a large library of Sass mixins, commonly used JavaScript plugins, and full accessibility support.

Getting Started

The quickest way to get started is with the basic CSS download. You can get versions with every component, essential ones only, or a custom build.

If you're a Sass user, we have two starter project templates, the Basic Template and the ZURB Template. You can install them by manually downloading them from GitHub, or using the Foundation CLI.

Lastly, if you're rolling your own setup, you can install Foundation through a variety of package managers.


The documentation can be found at https://foundation.zurb.com/sites/docs. To run the documentation locally on your machine, you need Node.js and Ruby installed on your computer. (Your Node.js version must be 0.12 or higher.)

Run these commands to set up the documentation:

git clone https://github.com/zurb/foundation-sites
cd foundation-sites
gem install scss-lint
npm install

Then run npm start to compile the documentation. When it finishes, a new browser window will open pointing to a BrowserSync server displaying the documentation.


Foundation has three kinds of tests: JavaScript, Sass, and visual regression. Refer to our testing guide for more details.

These commands will run the various tests:

  • npm run test:sass
  • npm run test:javascript
  • npm run test:visual
