Does anyone out there know of a good, clean boilerplate / blank / skeleton / naked theme (unsure of the proper term myself) besides the base/default? Not that it is bad, but sometimes another one may be more suited to a particular theme-cut job. It would be the Magento equivalent of this.

There are a few magento templates based on different HTML/CSS frameworks. But check the links. I'm no frontend developer and have therefore no idea, how good they are.

I recommend Magento Blank Theme - http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/blank-theme.html. While not the greatest, it is created & maintained by the Magento team.

  • It's not an enterprise edition ready-theme, though.

I've created a magento boilerplate which includes custom templates, js files, less css and other goods!

check it out over on GitHub https://github.com/jasonalvis/magento-boilerplate

There is a nice HTML5 Boilerplate template you can probably use, it's a bit outdated so perhaps you might want to implement replace it with the latest boilerplate version.

Magento files can be found here: https://github.com/zeljkoprsa/Magento-Boilerplate The boilerplate project can be found here: http://html5boilerplate.com/
