Drupal 8 + Foundation 6: The Perfect Combination

In this session we’ll explore options using Zurb Foundation 6 to create a custom Drupal 8 theme. Foundation 6 was released in November 2015, and delivers a lean system that aims to reduce complexity, improve accessibility, and provide tools that are becoming standards in Drupal theme development.


  • A quick introduction to the top features of the Zurb Foundation framework and its customizability.
  • An overview of how to create a custom responsive theme in Drupal 8 using parts of the “Stable” theme with css and javascript from Foundation.
  • A look at the front end build tools delivered with the Zurb template, and how you can use their package to include prototypes, and a style guide within your Drupal 8 theme.
  • The status of the contributed Drupal Foundation theme for Drupal 8.

This session is intended for front end developers who are getting started with Drupal 8 theming, and are looking to leverage the power of a front end framework. It will also prove helpful for those looking to jumpstart a more advanced front end workflow.
