Announcing: HTML5 Boilerplate

When kicking off a new project, I’ve always wanted to take with me all the kickass tricks I learned on the previous one. This project has been on and off for the last 2.5 years with a whole lot of on lately. Finally, HTML5 Boilerplate is ready to share.

It’s essentially a good starting template of html and css and a folder structure that works. But baked into it is years of best practices from front-end development professionals. Take a peek through the source to get a feel of what’s inside. And if you think there’s too much? Delete key that badboy.

I’m very interested in your contributions.. what else deserves to be in this base template?
