Responsive grids to the rescue
I’m not a huge fan of CSS frameworks. Not to say they are bad or anything, I just don’t care for them. I’ve tried a couple, and I thought the 960 grid did a pretty good job. There has been a lot of hype lately though for responsive design, so I thought I would take a look at one that has been getting a lot of respect and talk – Skeleton.
Skeleton’s CSS syntax
The creator of Skeleton, Dave Gamache, deserves a lot of credit for what he has done with it. For one, I’d like to thank him for using easy to remember class names like ‘one-third’ and ‘two-thirds’. I had a hard time remembering 960′s class names with .grid-whatever. He also uses things like ‘offset’ which is easier to tell what it does by reading it, than ‘push’ or ‘pull’ ever did. Looking through Skeleton’s grid CSS made me really happy when I first opened it, so props to Dave.
