Has anybody dealt with integrating boiler plate themes in magento? Here are some links:
- waterlee-boilerplate
- magento boilerplate

I've installed comapass, sass, converted css to scss, wrote custom layout and template files in app/design/frontend, but it didn't work. Help me.


Hi Checked your code on git hub,

I see the two folder


Copy whole folder to you theme root folders.

if all done the Refresh your cache.

No Set the Theme in backend .

Step 1 : login into your Magento admin Panel.

Step 2 : Go to System >> Configuration >> General >> Desig.

Step 3 : Open First Tab Set Package. Enter your theme name same as "waterlee-boilerplate"

Step 4 : Save your configuration.

Step 5 : Now you can see your theme on site.
