As is appropriate, we'll end our tour of base themes with Omega, the last letter…of the Greek alphabet.…Like AdaptiveTheme, the Omega theme features responsive design.…Take a look at the beginning of the AdaptiveTheme video to see what that is.…Like Fusion, it benefits from modules created specifically for it.…Like both of those themes and like Zen, Omega has terrific documentation.…One of the things that makes Omega special is that it's designed; in the words…of its creator, to be mobile first.…The result is a collection of tools and settings that go way beyond…responsive design in some really interesting ways in how it handles small…devices such as cell phones.…
As always, we'll start with the project page, which is at…drupal.org/project/omega.…You'll notice a couple of large links up here.…One is for the Informational Micro-Site;…I'll just open that in another tab, and the other is for the Handbook.…Starting with the Micro-Site, this is a sort of marketing for Omega and it's…very good and it's been very successful as well as you can see.…
