The most popular front-end framework in a lightweight form
We love bootstrap because :
- it's so well known
- it's so well tested
- it's so well crafted
But we really want a pure css framework that is more lightweight.
Is it possible ? Bootstrap-light is my take on it.
What are the trade-offs ?
I then removed some less used features of bootstrap that you can reenable if you wish by modifying the variables.scss and compiling it again.
I removed support for IE/Edge since IE is getting really old and Edge is changing his rendering engine for blink.
The result is a lightweight bootstrap that comes at 7kb gzipped out of the box with a lot of features and all the testing and knowledge of the parent framework.
