HTML5 Boilerplate – Professional HTML/CSS/JS Template

Posted · Category: Framework, GPL License, MIT License

HTML5 Boilerplate is the professional badass’s base HTML/CSS/JS template for a fast, robust and future-proof site.

After more than two years in iterative development, you get the best of the best practices baked in: cross-browser normalization, performance optimizations, even optional features like cross-domain ajax and flash. A starter apache .htaccess config file hooks you the eff up with caching rules and preps your site to serve HTML5 video, use @font-face, and get your gzip zipple on.

Boilerplate is not a framework, nor does it prescribe any philosophy of development, it’s just got some tricks to get your project off the ground quickly and right-footed.

    This isn’t “license free”. It’s dual-licensed under the MIT and GPL licenses.

    Looks interesting. I’ve been playing with html5 and css3, but I’m really bumbed IE9 will not support css3 animations.
