Gantry 5 Framework

  • Please visit http://gantry.org to download a FREE Joomla Gantry 5 default theme (Hydrogen) which can be used as a base for your own template!

Gantry 5 is packed full of features created to empower the development of designs into fully functional layouts with the absolute minimum effort and fuss.

Responsive Layout System

Gantry 5 uses the Nucleus grid system, built from scratch using Flexbox and tied in to the Layout Manager to generate classes.

Cross-platform Support

The new responsive Gantry 5 framework is available for WordPress 4.2+, Joomla 3.4+ and Grav 1.0+.

Intuitive YAML-driven Configuration

YAML is a human-readable data serialization, making it easy to create and configure blueprints for back-end configuration options.

Twig Templating

Gantry 5 utilizes Twig to make creating powerful, dynamic themes quick and easy.

New Administrative Interface

Gantry 5's administrative interface has been completely rebuilt from the ground up to meet the needs of tomorrow's developer, today.

Infinitely Customizable

Gantry 5 is the most customizable and powerful version of the framework yet, featuring drag-and-drop customization controlling virtually every aspect of the site's layout and design.

New Particles System

Gantry 5's new Particles system makes it easy to create, configure, and manage content blocks. Create new Particles in minutes, adjust their settings at multiple levels from global down to the individual block, and more!

Flexible and Easy Layout Manager

Set up and configure page layouts with Gantry 5's new Layout Manager. Featuring drag-and-drop functionality that gives you the power to place content blocks, resize them, and configure their unique settings in seconds. Load layout presets or duplicate the layout of another Outline with a click of the mouse, and customize virtually every aspect of the page layout without ever having to touch a text editor.

No Programming Experience Necessary

Adding and moving positions, resizing blocks, and more can be done with drag-and-drop simplicity in the new, powerful Layout Manager. Error pages and other areas of site design are also easily handled in Gantry 5's administrative interface. You can change almost any aspect of a theme without breaking out a single editor.

Powerful Menu Editor

Change the way your site's menus look with Gantry 5's powerful Menu Editor. Quickly insert Particles, rearrange menu items, and add icons in seconds.

New Outline System

Theme overrides are now part of Gantry 5's Outline system, enabling you to easily create and manage Layouts, Settings, Styles, and more and assign them as needed.

Use SCSS, LESS or CSS

Gantry 5 has built-in support for SCSS and pure CSS, with the ability to support LESS.

Functionality
Of the best frameworks around. Utilises several ways (twig, scss...) for templating. Graphic interface saves time and gets most things done.
Ease of use
Easy, but not for novices. The more you learn the easier it is to configure it, and get lots of things done through its graphic interface.
Documentation
Covers the basics, and is a must-read. Could have been more explanatory on various options in configuration.
I used this to: Building custom templates (there is Hydrogen and Helium provided for free with Gantry 5, to start). It is helpful with achieving great styling and looks, while it gives good management of several aspets of templating, and makes templating very time-efficient.

Frustrating

Documentation
Great documentation , needed only for creating particles and atoms

Functionality
Cumbersome in every aspect. Documentation is extremely poor. They never explain in depth how it works.
Ease of use
Full of bugs, took me and my collegue two weeks to make a website that we could build in just a few hours. Mobile menu is completely nuts...
Documentation
Very poor. They don't go in detail. They just mention self-explanatory things, their documentation is obsolete in many cases.
I used this to: I used it to create a very very simple website. Whatever i do the website looks like a crap, full of bugs, the menu is the worst of all. When menu items expand, they go bellow cover image, mobile menu either wont display or it will display in the wrong place. And so many more.

Very very useful
