Open Social is a Drupal 8 distribution for building social communities and intranets.

For those of you who don't know what a Style Guide is - it's quite simple really. A Style Guide is a set of standards to ensure a consistent design and identity. Additionally, from a development point of view it serves to improve the speed and ease of code deployment. A style guide consolidates the front-end code while comprehensively documenting the visual language, such as color palettes and fonts.

The goals for creating this style guide are:

  1. Streamline the workflow for designers and developers
  2. Maintain a consistency of the theme styles and components
  3. Create a focal point for our Design and User Experience work, both for ourselves and for the community

This theme is built upon Drupal Bootstrap, which means Bootstrap is used as the base theme. We further enhance it with custom styling and extra components. For the extra components we makes use of Material Design principles.

We are currently working on the beta release which in planned for the end of September.
