The talented team at Zurb has released Foundation, a design scaffold for building web applications. Much like HTML5 Boilerplate, Foundation comes with some sensible markup defaults, however it goes farther with attractive styles for most interface elements in the spirit of Twitter’s Bootstrap project.

Along with a grid layout and form styling, Foundation also bundles two powerful Zurb JavaScript plugins: Orbit and Reveal.

While the front end code is server framework agnostic, Rails developers can integrate Zurb Foundation easily with the zurb-foundation gem which delivers foundation assets via the Rails 3.1 Asset Pipeline.
