HTML5 Boilerplate is a professional front-end template for building fast, robust, and adaptable web apps or sites.
This project is the product of many years of iterative development and combined community knowledge. It does not impose a specific development philosophy or framework, so you're free to architect your code in the way that you want.
Choose one of the following options:
git clone https://github.com/h5bp/html5-boilerplate.git- and checkout the tagged release you'd like to use.
This doesn't mean that HTML5 Boilerplate cannot be used in older browsers, just that we'll ensure compatibility with the ones mentioned above.
If you need legacy browser support (IE 6+, Firefox 3.6+, Safari 4+) you can use HTML5 Boilerplate v4, but is no longer actively developed.
Take a look at the documentation table of contents. This documentation is bundled with the project, which makes it readily available for offline reading and provides a useful starting point for any documentation you want to write about your project.
Hundreds of developers have helped make the HTML5 Boilerplate what it is today. Anyone and everyone is welcome to contribute, however, if you decide to get involved, please take a moment to review the guidelines:
