HTML5 Boilerplate

The web’s most popular front-end template, HTML5 Boilerplate helps you build fastrobust, and adaptable web apps or sites. Kick-start your project with the combined knowledge and effort of 100s of developers, all in one little package.

The HTML5 boilerplate is like apache webserver….. everyone on the internet is using it. And why wouldn’t you? With brains like Nicolas Gallagher, Hans Christian Reinl, Mathias Bynens, Paul Irish, and Divya Manian you would be remiss not to take advantage.

But before you just download it and start using it without thinking it’s also very much like Frameworks like Bootstrap and Foundation. HTML Boilerplate comes jammed packed with everything you could possibly need to create a project and MORE than you probably actually require.

With that in mind one of the great things about HTML5 Boilerplate is that you are able to customise the download to include only what you need.
