Hi all,

I've just released Flask-Fundatio 0.1, my go at a Flask extension to
integrate the Foundation front-end framework. See
https://github.com/wbolster/flask-fundatio for more information.

Out of curiosity, as someone who's never worked with it, why does
Foundation (which is a purely graphical front-end framework from my
understanding of it) need back-end integration?

Hi,

You are right that back-end integration is not *required*, but it can be
helpful nonetheless. Let me explain.

For instance, Flask-Fundatio bundles the required assets (CSS and
JavaScript files) and makes those available through a blueprint.
Additionally, it provides a base template that applications can extend,
and some template macros (just a few for now) to simplify creating
Foundation HTML constructs.

None of this is required if you use custom styling and templates, which
most "real" websites will do, but for quick experiments this extension
provides a useful starting point (at least it does for me). And even if
bring your own templates and assets, the macros can still be helpful to
avoid too much boilerplate in templates.
