I Love Typography I Love Typography — Sassaparilla: Fiennes Edition Thinking with Type | Home Typeplate: A Starter Kit For Beautiful Web Type As of today we’re pleased to announce Typeplate, a free-range and open-source typographic starter kit that will hopefully help you build beautiful, text-rich websites. The word on the street is that the Web Is 95% Typography, so as we hurtle towards the future, we think there’s still a lot we can learn from five centuries of history. Typeplate is the result of this exploration of our typographic heritage. “Another Framework?” We made Typeplate because we weren’t satisfied with existing Web frameworks. Pattern libraries are helpful but they rarely separate structure from aesthetics, which leads to projects looking generic unless you sink a lot of time into re-working all the patterns. With Typeplate, you can combine solid typographic conventions of the past with flexible styles of the presence. How It Works So what does Typeplate do? Typeplate isn’t the next Bootstrap or Foundation; we’re building a toolkit for Web type that’s meant to be extended and customized. Demo And Downloads Easy.

Now that we have our routes setup, we will start our work with the home page. Views The File Structure Let’s create the files necessary for creating a whole templating system. - app -- views --- layouts ------- default.blade.php ------- sidebar.blade.php --- pages ------- home.blade.php ------- about.blade.php ------- projects.blade.php ------- contact.blade.php --- includes ------- head.blade.php ------- header.blade.php ------- footer.blade.php ------- sidebar.blade.php Includes We will use the head, header, and footer includes so that we don’t have to rewrite that code. <!
