Skeleton has been around for a while, but it’s just had a major refactoring and refresh.
Reading through the CSS, I saw the Ernie trick where all type is scaled to 10px and then relative-sized from there.
This is sort of the Anti-Bootstrap. Instead of providing look and feel for every damned thing, it makes a very tight layout and normalizes many things, but then leaves well enough alone, so you can add what you need. Compare and contrast the slightly less than 400 lines of code with Bootstrap’s thousands and thousands of lines.
I have been hand-writing CSS for ~15 years, and I still cannot manage to parse out the Bootstrap layout model. But looking at this, I both understand that gigantic layout better, and also feel like I could hold this entire framework in my head at once if I needed to.
