Streamlining theme development with Omega, LibSass and Gulp

Streamlining theme development with Omega, LibSass and Gulp

Presentation Slides: Omega is a powerful responsive base theme that uses Syntactically Awesome Stylesheets (aka Sass). Normally Sass speeds up theme development but sometimes the long compile process can slow us down, unless we switch to LibSass with Gulp! In this session I will talk about:

  • Creating Omega-4 sub-themes with drush
  • Creating Omega layouts for various needs
  • Switching from SusyOne to Susy-2 responsive grid system
  • Switching from Compass to blazing fast LibSass CSS compiler
  • Switching from Grunt to Gulp task runner
  • PostCSS processing and using SVG
