Themes and html5boilerplate

Themes and html5boilerplate

Hello,

I just joined this mailing list; but I noticed in the archives that
someone was working on an Html5boilerplate theme using erb. Did
someone already write one in HAML? How can I find existing themes? Is
there an official way to name Nesta themes on Github?

Thank you kindly,
Jason

Not sure on your question regarding HTML5 Boilerplate in HAML, but it's
idiomatic within Ruby <http://blog.nofail.de/2010/11/gem-best-practice/> to
name extensions like gem-extension_name, where gem is the library being
extended (e.g., rack-rewrite). At least some extensions are named following
this 
pattern<http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=%22nesta-%22+site%3Agithub.com>for
nesta and several themes use the

nesta-theme-[name]<http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=%22nesta-theme%22+site%3Agithub.com&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=>scheme,
from what I've found.

As with all things, not everybody follows conventions, though.

It should say that in the doc on creating themes. I'll check...

Searching github for "nesta-theme" is the currently documented way of 
finding them. Once there are more than 4 decent public ones I'll put a 
themes page together (it'd be a bit weak at the moment).

How true. In Nesta's case, themes for public use need to fit the 
convention. If you're not sharing it, you can call it what you like.
