Zen Framework

A templating framework designed to help organize code, improve efficiency, and facilitate development for the Health Sciences Center at WVU.

Project Overview

The WVU Health Science Center has an incredible amount of smaller department sites, so they needed a more efficient, controlled process by which they could create and update designs. So, I created the Zen Framework to quickly make changes to hundreds of sites within seconds - saving developers time and allowing them to focus on new projects and designs.

The Zen Framework is greatly inspired by the CSS Zen Garden which focuses on a CSS only design philosophy. With that philosophy in mind we were able to standardize our DOM, simplify our designs and mobile support down to a single file, and gain more control over future changes and bug fixes.
