The benefits of CSS Frameworks
All frameworks are the consequence of repeated patterns, they help developers get faster, repeatable and predictable results. CSS frameworks are no different. By using them you can predict the results you will obtain, and you don't have to write over and over the same classes or CSS rules to accomplish certain results.
The people against CSS frameworks argument that because they can accomplish the same results by themselves, frameworks have no benefit. But Modularity is the first benefit, going with the DRY principle of programming.
So do you need a CSS Framework? We would say you do. The problem here is to decide if currently available frameworks provide the features you need. Or going and develop a framework yourself...
- Elastic provides a declarative syntax language to define the layout structure and behavior. It's like having a conversation with your code.
- This way you don't have to remember cryptic class names, just express what you want.
- Make two, three, four, or auto-columns.
- Let Elastic get the width of fixed width columns.
- Call for same-height or full-height.
