A few months ago, Wrenna Robertson and Whelm King approached us with a unique project. They just had started their publishing business, Show Off Books, and were in the process of completing their first title, I’ll Show You Mine, which is “a photo study of female genitalia and a window into women's experiences of their genitals”.
The website we were to build was to be used primarily to sell the book and provide information about the social issues that have been brought to light through the creation and publication of the book. The stigma-breaking subject, educational approach and vision convinced us to take on this project.
With the integration of Basic, SASS, and Drupal, we'll be utilizing the Compass module to automatically compile our SASS markup to flat file CSS. Additionally, I will supply you with a basic profile and make file which will allow you to build this environment on your local machine.
Sass is an extension of CSS3, adding nested rules, variables, mixins, selector inheritance, and more. It’s translated to well-formatted, standard CSS using the command line tool or a web-framework plugin.Compass is a stylesheet authoring framework that makes your stylesheets and markup easier to build and maintain. With compass, you write your stylesheets in Sass instead of CSS. Using the power of Sass Mixins and the Compass community, you can apply battle-tested styles from frameworks like Blueprint to your stylesheets instead of your markup.
After two and a half years of development by over hundreds of contributors, why not celebrate the much anticipated version 7 release of one of our favourite pieces of software with a party. We will be hosting a Drupal 7 Release Party Potluck at The Jibe's office space on the 7th of January. Bring your favourite dish or snack to share with other Drupalers. If you decide to drink, please bring your own beer or alcohol and plan a safe ride home!
