@paulie_d: Here’s a very quick and messy example of what I was talking about. Of course, it’s better when you have a real layout to plan so it’s not as messy as this. Most of the time you can create grids with the existing div or p tags, but sometimes you may want to create a class (such as .group), so you can get more complex. My designs aren’t usually overly complex, so I normally just use divs to create basic grids.
@magnus_vb let me add my options here. It depends what kind of projects are you focusing on. Did you try Less http://lesscss.org/ pre-processor? If you are building micro-projects or prototypes, don’t hesitate to use it as it reduce the development time and a lot of hassle. For building MVP’s you can use it as part of Eskimo boilerplate, http://eskimo.io, allowing to quickly built up your desired project.
@spascan, this conversation ended eighteen months ago. Generally, it’s not a good idea to post in such old topics without a very, very good reason. It is doubtful that the OP is still preoccupied with this question. If you really have something worth saying, it’s probably a better idea to start a new discussion instead of bringing an old, finished thread back up to the surface.
