    This thread over [here]( got me thinking about a simple CSS framework I’m working on (which is over [here]( – very much WIP so don’t judge too harshly), where I basically have the aim to create something that will let me roll out projects more quickly (will port to a WordPress starter theme, for example) but isn’t loaded down with every feature under the sun like the majority of “frameworks” seem to be.

    So reading that other thread, I thought, hmm, that masonry Jquery thing would be cool to have. But then where do I stop adding features until it becomes bloated like every other framework?

    So thought I’d get some feedback here, on what folk would regard as the basic “essentials” of a very clean, simple, lean CSS framework?



    Something like Masonry would be way too much, I think.

    I really dislike frameworks for the reasons you listed. They are just so bloated and you have to spend so much time stripping them down.


    I’m with the @TheDoc on this. I dislike frameworks just for that reason. The only “framework” I use is a basic reset.

    However, I think @Melindrea has an intelligent idea. A SASS/SCSS framework actually sounds like something I’d be highly interested in (specifically variables/mixins).
