Base Building Blocks is a base theme for Drupal 7.x that includes a collection of useful tools for theme development. It makes use of Twitter Bootstrap, Modernizr, and Icon Awesome. It also provides a basic css file structure, a basic page template, and a useful html template. The theme template.php file contains a collection of functions that add classes that Twitter Bootstrap uses to theme certain drupal-generated elements.

Other features include an IOS orientation fix, default media queries for responsive layouts, updated jQuery version, IE7-9 classes for , default Apple touch icons, and aria roles.

I have been working on the theme for awhile, and decided that others might be able to make use of it, as it's been a great resource for me!
The sandbox project page that I set up is here:
The Github repo is here:

Thanks for reviewing my code!

We are currently quite busy with all the project applications and I can only review projects with a review bonus. Please help me reviewing and I'll take a look at your project right away :-)

Here is a quick review:

It appears you are working in the "master" branch in git. You should really be working in a version specific branch. The most direct documentation on this is Moving from a master branch to a version branch (

Review of the master branch:

README.txt is missing, see the guidelines for in-project documentation.
Remove all .DS_Store files from your repository.
Remove "version" from the info file, it will be added by packaging automatically.

Agree with @ressa at #5. I hope this can be turned into a full project soon.

I'm doing some work to get the d.o repo cleaned up and will be pushing version 2.3.0 onto github soon.
I realize there will be some problems related to the Twitter Bootstrap license, but work is being done to move Bootstrap to an MIT license, so I don't feel any need move bootstrap out of this repository. If it's a showstopper for getting the project on d.o, would you rather wait for Bootstrap to be moved to an MIT license, or utilize Bootstrap as a library?

Hi pcoffey,

You can't change your own application to RTBC :-). Only someone else who has reviewed your work and is happy with it may do so. Setting to needs review.
