What is Genesis Sandbox?

Genesis Sandbox is a starter theme created by Jonathan Perez and developed by Travis Smith. It’s meant to be a base for all of your custom theme development, whether it’s for a client, theme building, or personal sites.

The child theme is built off a mixture of the Genesis 2.0 style sheet, 1.9 style sheet, and a few edits and tweaks of my own. It comes with all the SaSS files, or you can edit the style sheet directly.

It includes multiple navigation areas with a specific mobile menu, several JavaScript enhancements such as Pretty Photo, html5shiv, and Modernizr, Twitter Bootstrap, Font Awesome, smooth anchor scrolling, a theme options panel where you can change the footer of your Genesis Themes, and so much more.

Genesis Sandbox was built as a way to speed up development for your projects and it’s completely FREE!

Just make sure you have the Genesis Framework before installing.
