Top 5 CSS Frameworks to Accelerate Your Front-end
Development
2
  • CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets and
    controls how HTML elements are displayed
    on-screen or any other media.
  • Today you can design gorgeous and responsive UI
    without even knowing advanced CSS thanks to the
    CSS frameworks around! According to our team
    of Front End Developers, the key benefit is how
    these frameworks allow them to develop appealing
    and responsive web user interfaces within the
    limited time.

3
  • In this post we would discuss about top 5 CSS
    frameworks of 2017, but prior to that here are
    some guidelines for choosing the right framework
    for your project.
  • Important things to consider before choosing
    your framework

4
  • Popularity  How popular is the framework?
    Greater popularity infers that there are more
    people involved in the project. Thus, you would
    have more articles, tutorials from the community
    more real-world examples or websites.
  • A framework with a larger community also means
    that the framework is future-proof as it is less
    likely to be abandoned.

5
  • Active development  You would need to watch out
    whether the framework you are going to consider
    is under active development or not? This is
    because a good framework always needs to remain
    updated with the latest web technologies.

6
  • Maturity  It is also of utmost importance to
    find out the maturity of the framework under
    consideration. This is because relying on a
    framework for your live projects which has not
    yet been used in real-world projects would be
    truly unwise.
  • Good documentation  It is very crucial to know
    if the framework offers good documentation which
    is very essential to facilitate the learning
    process.

7
  • The level of specificity  It is very crucial
    that your chosen framework does not have a high
    level of specificity. This is because it is
    easier and convenient to customize by adding new
    CSS rules rather than overwriting existing ones.
    In case you add new rules on the redundant rules
    then you would be increasing the size of the CSS
    unnecessarily.
