CSS Frameworks

  • # July 18, 2008 at 6:03 pm

    Hello everybody,

    This week and next week I am on holiday, so I am not so active on the forums as normally, but I got internet so I’ll do my best to follow most of the discussions here.

    Having that said, I would like to throw in a new discussion (for as far as I know, this discussion wasn’t pointed here before): what do you think of CSS Frameworks? There are a lot of bloggers recently writing about it, but I don’t see the point of those frameworks yet. I don’t like to use a framework of someone else, I prefer building everything by myself. What do you think about it?

    Building your own CSS frameworks is almost always to prefer, as they’ll not include styles that won’t be used. Personally I like to have full controll over each CSS, as it feels "safer", if you know what I mean…

    frameworks are the most in effecient way of building websites, u see it in javascript frameworks , serverside frameworks and even css frameworks. They all include data u dont need.

    I’m half and half here on frameworks. For CSS? No thanks. CSS is about design. However, if there is a sort of animation I want, I’ll use a JS framework, because, well, I don’t know JS very well. I’ve only been in designing for a few months, but I spend a few hours everyday of my free time (i have another full time job) teaching myself everything I need to know. Even accounting software(come on clients!). So, once I get around to learning Javascript, that’ll be awesome. Just right now, I’m not there yet. I am proudly on HTML, CSS and Photoshop though! =)

    Just my 2 cents. :ugeek:

    I know excactly what you mean, and that’s for me also the reason to use my own code. Then I know where things are for and there is less change on useless code.
