*** UPDATED FOR HTML5 BOILERPLATE 5.3.0 ***

Makes HTML5 Boilerplate just a click away. View a 5min screencast tutorial.

boilerX allows you to easily implement HTML5 Boilerplate on your website. It contains the exact boilerplate markup separated into logical chunks and adds some convenient features. It now also copies the needed files to your assets/components directory. Things like boilerplate stylesheets, javascript files, docs, and a folder full of 'goodies' will be extracted there. 

Rather than modify your .htaccess file, although the boilerplate .htaccess file can be found in the goodies folder.

If you wish, you'll need to copy the crossdomain.xml, favicon.ico, humans.txt, robots.txt from the goodies folder to your site root.

Feature List:

 - exactly replicates html5 boilerplate 4.2.00 markup (h5bp-html5-boilerplate-defe483)
