Good idea to include it IMHO - maybe in a 'development tools' folder or something? Everyone tries to hack a theme sooner or later.

Resurrecting this thread :)

I need to develop a new theme, but razorburn and barebones links in this thread are broken. Anyone still got the files?

Or should I use something else as a starting point?

I would look into basing your new theme on Bootstrap3 at the moment. It's much more structured, and it works quite well in combination with stock ImpressCMS. I have a work in progress on http://www.impresscms.be based on vanilla bootstrap, and except for some small errors that I want to fix, but lack the time, it works quite well I think.

Thanks. Argh, Javascript!!!

I've also been trying to improve my typography (good typography is HARD and I always felt it was one of the weaknesses of our themes), so I'm experimenting with Typebase.

Typebase looks cool. Can it be integrated with Bootstrap?

Have a look at Bootup, the work-in-progress next generation theme for ImpressCMS in the future. There's not much there at the moment, just a slightly cleaned-up version of my ImpressCMS.be work, so feel free to update and make pull requests.

for Bootup, I do my preliminary work in my personal fork : https://github.com/fiammybe/impresscms-theme-bootup

I'll do a pull request once I feel that the theme has reached a minimal level, which might be quite soon.

I think so, Typebase is just a stylesheet so I added an import statement to my theme stylesheet to include it. So I'm handling all the typography aspects via that.

As far as tweaks go I just set the default font to verdana, the default text size, added a p+p style and things are looking pretty nice as it seems to scale the other styles relative to that pretty well. Much better than my own efforts.
