What is a “feather”?
A feather is a package of assets that you can include in Perch just like any other add-on. Download available official Feathers from the Perch website in the add-ons section.
Adding a Feather
To install a feather unzip the download and place the directory into
perch/addons/feathers. So, if you downloaded our default Feather Quill you would put the
quill folder directly into the
Then add the Feather to your
perch/config/feathers.php file. (If you don’t have this file, you can create it.)
<?php include(PERCH_PATH.'/addons/feathers/quill/runtime.php'); ?>
Using a Feather
To insert any CSS that the Feather provides into your document add the following tag in the head of your document:
<?php perch_get_css(); ?>
Creating your own Feather
Creating a Feather is very simple and you can create Feathers to simplify parts of your development process by including assets that you use routinely. See the Feathers documentation in the API section for more information.
