Shape tracing broken when using Foundation responsive framework

Using Orchard 1.6 with jQuery 1.8.2 and Foundation responsive framework 3.

If I include foundation.min.js and app.js from foundation javascript folder, shape tracing doesn't work properly. When clicking on a highlighted item to try to view info in shape tracing window, I get the following javascript error:

Uncaught TypeError: Object [object Object] has no method 'tmpl'

The error occurs in orchard-designertools-shapetracing.js at line 347:
// render the template
if (currentShape && shapeTracingMetadataHost[currentShape]) {
However, if I copy the selector into the debug console and evaluate: $("#shape-tracing-tabs-shape-template").tmpl

It does point to a function.

Does anyone know what might be happening here?

Any frames or iframes involved in this?

I do have an iframe in the page but it's completely unrelated... it's just a Vimeo iframe.

I'm asking because JavaScript can be confusing this way when you test for an object but in reality the one that you care about is in a different document. So you're saying that when you break into the debugger at the place where the error occurs, and evaluate this same expression in the console, you do get a result, whereas the browser complains that there isn't one?

Ok, removed the iframe, no change.

That's right - in console it doesn't have any problem running, but in that context it does. Interestingly, if I replace $() with jQuery() in the above code temporarily, it doesn't cause the same error.

Aha! Does that Foundation framework redefine $?

Ahh well done Bertrand. I had checked that foundation wasn't including jQuery again and overwriting it... and it wasn't including jQuery.js, BUT... it actually encapsulates jQuery inside it's own file foundation.min.js. How evil! So yes, $ was being redefined. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!
