Groundwork 2.x is now a progressive mobile first front-end framework for Drupal with modular scale typography and powerful layout engine for faster and more effective web development.

Major changes from Groundwork 1.x are:

Progressive mobile-first

Responsive from mobile to wider media with customizable breakpoints.

Modular Scale Typography

Harmonious typography with the time-tested golden ratio used by typographers for centuries.

True Semantic Markup

Work without the layout classes like .grid_x on your markup. Unless you really want to use them.

More customizations with LESS

Harness the power of LESS with pre-defined intuitive mixins and bundles. Define variables for layout, colors, fonts, and more.

Powerful Customizable Grid

Work with 24 units with proportional gutter and line-height or customize according to your needs. Define sidebar, branding, and node aside widths on the fly.

Sensible style defaults
