Official Website for Typeplate: “A Typographic Starter Kit.”
Frameworks make decisions for you about how to organize, structure and design a site. Pattern libraries don’t separate styling and markup, making them tough to use in a truly modular fashion. We weren’t satisfied, so we made a thing that doesn’t do that.
Typeplate is a "typographic starter kit". We don’t make aesthetic design choices, but define proper markup with extensible styling for common typographic patterns. A stripped–down Sass library concerned with the appropriate technical implementation of design patterns–not how they look.
Typeplate is just a measely 4.91 KB and especially smaller when compressed!

When contributing (by the way you're awesome for that so thanks) please keep your commits small and targeted when you're prepared to file a Pull Request. We’d prefer not seeing Pull Requests that contain 20 commits in multiple spots. Keep it small and it will make things simpler and much cleaner in the long run.
$ npm install && bower install

§ Grunt Tasks :
Those that choose to use Grunt you can execute the command

§ Package Management : Bower
To keep track of our packages and allow for easy updating we use Bower Package Manager which installs all our project's packages in the "components" directory. In order to install bower you must have Node and npm installed on your machine. Once Node and npm are installed simply run the command below (which works on both Windows/Mac and one of the reasons why we chose it).
npm install bower -g
With so many packages to choose from, we recommend a few libraries to use with Typeplate to compliment. Bon Appetite!
