Rapid WebApp Prototyping: Foundation vs Blueprint vs Bootstrap
The best way to learn a new programming language is to have a moderately challenging project. Not too large and not too trivial. So, few days ago I decided to develop a fantastic web app using Ruby on Rails (RoR).
For the next three hours, I was hooked on learning about CSS Frameworks and rapid site prototyping. I found what I was looking for, something nice, sleek and sexy.
A framework that works seamlessly with Ruby on Rails, robust, powerful and very attractive. Foundation 4 rapid prototyping framework. It’s the heart of most responsive site. Jonathan Smiley wrote a popular article on Foundation 4 which says it all.
I checked out blueprint as well. But IMO, blueprint does not stand a ground beside Foundation 4. The tool looks dated and I’m not sure I even want to spend time on it for whatever reason. Foundation 4 all the way!
What a fantastic morning it’s been.
As an update: I’ve also found Twitter Boostrap an amazing CSS frameworks. This is getting very interesting.
