  • In this post, we will be comparing the two CSS frameworks, Bootstrap vs Foundation.

Bootstrap (currently at v3.2) and Foundation (currently v5.3) are the two most popular front-end frameworks right now.

    What is a CSS Framework?

    A CSS framework, also called a web framework, is a group of tools, libraries, and best practices for use on a website. A CSS framework can be as simple as a one-page template that you use as the starting place for every page of your site, or it might be a complex group of CSS, HTML, JavaScript, and server-side programs and files that you use to manage the entire site architecture. But nearly all frameworks include a few things in some fashion:

  • UX design or user experience design is the process by which a pin point or need is identified. UX designer will likely design the user flows, the steps that an user would take to sign up for your newsletter, for example, what are the steps they will follow and how will they know if they’ve been successful?

    The design is then passed off to the UI designer. The UI designer will refine those interactions adding color and emphasis to the original design giving users the clues they need to successfully navigate the newsletter sign up process.

  • Magento was built as a flexible platform. This is really its defining feature. Users can create stores with a variety of functions using pre-made extensions or by utilizing their coding chops. This is the beauty of a platform like Magento and one reason it’s so popular.

    In addition, there have been many complaints of Magento 1 running slow. In response to this, experts have determined what makes Magento sites run faster, but this still couldn’t change the issue of core speed. To address these issues, the Magento team designed an upgraded platform: Magento 2.

  • Frameworks have proved as a boon for designers since their inception. They are a standardized set of concepts, practices and criteria which help designers in dealing with a common type of problem.
