Boilerplate for Responsive, Mobile-Friendly Development: Skeleton
Do you do single-source-development? By single source development, I mean using the same code base to develop solutions for different platforms. This method of development is usually based on a flexible framework that allows you to use the same code base to publish solutions on various platforms without requiring much changes. If you do not already practise single source development model, start with Skeleton, which is a small collection of CSS & JS files that can help you rapidly develop sites that look beautiful at any size, be it a 17″ laptop screen or an iPhone.
Skeleton is built on three core principles:
- Responsive Grid Down To Mobile
- Fast to Start
- Style Agnostic
Skeleton’s base grid is a variation of the 960 grid system. The syntax is simple and it’s effective cross browser, but the awesome part is that it also has the flexibility to go mobile like a champ.
