I want to make my new template and I can not decide which reponsive grid system I should choose. Which system do you use your templates? Foundation 4, Bootstrap 3 or Bootstrap 2, or you have developed your own responsive grid system?
For each answer you write please why did you choose very one responsive grid system.
Thanks for the reply.
Bootstrap because it is most popular framework here. If you want to have full ie8 support then go with Bootststrap2. If ie8 is not much important for you go with Bootstrap 3. It has more complex classes that give more possibility to better optimise layout for smaller devices especially tablets. For clients outside Tf version 2 is still the best choice.
Try this: http://unsemantic.com/
It uses percents and IMO it’s better than Bootstrap or Foundation.
+1 for the percentages.
I use a similar setup – cool thing is you can use percentages and still have fixed gutters.
Only downside with a setup like unsemantic is if you want columns to have backgrounds or borders that actualy stay inside the needed width – you always have to put an extra container inside the column container. Otherwise for example a top border will ‘visually’ exeed the column width with 5 of 10 pixels. That’s the effect that comes with using padding and box-sizing: border-box.
So if you are really, REALLY keen on having as minimum code as possible, using percentages like this would be not for you.
But hey, what’s a couple of extra div’s
BTW: if one IS really keen on having minimum code, any framework sucks really.. especially bootstrap.
I saw a theme once:
First including full version of bootstrap, and then including a large css file overriding the original bootstrap, twice..
So much for having as minimum and clean code
Foundation also uses percentages where it makes sense.
