When developing a web project, most often it will be from scratch. It can be a challenge making a code base that can be reused considering that the projects differ from each other. Those web developers who are already experienced sometimes go through the effort of making a front-end type of framework. Doing this however, can be quite the challenge and requires lots of effort put in to it especially when keeping things up-to-date and still practical with our modern procedures.
Considering what coders would want and need would imply that a developer would have to go for something that has flexibility, stability, openly sourced, and of course, has well documentation. Based on how big the project is, a CSS grid system would suffice, but what if one could just take out the functions when deemed right. This will talk about a front-end framework known as Foundation which is very flexible and practical for these kinds of projects.
Foundation is known as a front-end framework which has many tools available to use in building a responsive and mobile friendly website. It has a primary build of CSS, jQuery, and HTML and it makes use of modern tech and processes, but can trace itself back to even IE8. Even if the framework is being used by developers of CSS and HTML, you can still choose to use Foundation along with Sass and Rails.
ZURB, the company who made Foundation, created a toolset which is tightly regimented for the designers and web developers. Each of the modules has its own individual role in the framework to work as a whole but still able to work independent from others. This would give you the option to mix and match the features to your preference in the project, or even take one feature and take it to another project. You even have the ability to add features to other frameworks.
These days it’s not surprising for developers to be using frameworks. However, a lot of these frameworks are starting to bloat because the creators are always made the effort to cover any eventuality from time to time. It may have been once smooth and lightweight but now has overflowed with tons of http requests.
Foundation has a variety of functionality and features. It was made on a percentage-based fluid grid system, with additional slider from jQuery, light box plug-in, has all the HTML elements you need built in easily and always takes into account mobile devices. It also provides you with the ability to set out some customized mobile plans with the use of its mobile grid which would make it flexible and easy to customize to desire your own project for both users of desktop and mobile devices.
To download your own custom build, ZURB has provided a download page which you check a form to get a build depending on what you require. This will also allow you to change default CSS colors built in and change the sizes of key and even resize its width. Net Solutions can help you with all these web tools.
