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. – philwinkle May 28 '13 at 19:45
  • It comes with magento now – Salman von Abbas Jun 25 '13 at 11:22
  • Or better, it's not maintained by Magento. – Marek Maurizio Jan 7 '16 at 11:30

    The link is broken. – Simon Mar 12 '18 at 9:43

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There is a nice HTML5 Boilerplate template you can probably use, it's a bit outdated so perhaps you might want to implement replace it with the latest boilerplate version.
