Convert from pureFoundation with Zurb...

I have some sites that I hand-coded with CC editor using the Zurb stack, SASS, and Panini. I have the latest versions of both Site Designer and Foundation Framer. I am seeking guidance/opinions on migrating to either of these. The sites are fairly basic but have nested responsive drop down navigation menus.

I am appending the source Panini partial for a pared-down example to show what I am doing.

Thanks in advance.

1st question is if using the zurb stack and I assume a partial for the navigation element, why would you want to transfer over?
2nd question, yes I would assume its possible in SD3 (have not used foundation framer) however all your divs with have its container class added by default so could bloat the code or make it not work.

Thanks Phil,

I understand that your position is that since I have all my custom components coded and working that I should just keep hand coding and not argue with success. Its not really a lot of work to just copy and tweak library items for new pages or versions.

Perhaps SD3 and RFF are more suitable for a scratch-pad to prototype to finished site workflow?

I would say then the best way to see if it will work is try and find out in sd3. You should be able to add the data attribute for the sticky container anchorTop etc.
It would be great if you could let us know if have success or not. Just not sure if it would be a lot extra work when it would be easier to make a template partial and scss file for the nav to add to other projects.
I am biased in my thinking somewhat as loving the zurb stack, especially the sass compiler and browser sync amongst other things.. Regards

Think I misunderstood. Are you saying sd3 would be like a pre design phase for creating like a template. Then afterwards handcode with zurb stack etc?

Phil,

Thanks for your advice. I will dig deeper into the Components and Styles. I am going away for a while. I will be back with my experience later.

Over and out.
