Contributions

The goal of Skeleton-Less is to have a mirrored Less repository of Skeleton. In order to keep the integrity of the original Skeleton framework, I cannot accept any features or functionality outside the original implementation of Dave Gamache's Skeleton Framework. If you would like to see features, functionality, or extensions outside of the original please make a PR / or issue on the original skeleton framework.

If you have Less improvements, additional mixins, or other helpful Less techniques that stay within the original codebase. Feel free to make a pull request!

Why it's awesome

Skeleton is lightweight and simple. It styles only raw HTML elements (with a few exceptions) and provides a responsive grid. Nothing more.

  • Minified, it's less than a kb
  • It's a starting point, not a UI framework
  • No compiling or installing...just vanilla CSS

Browser support

  • Chrome latest
  • Firefox latest
  • Opera latest
  • Safari latest
  • IE latest

The above list is non-exhaustive. Skeleton works perfectly with almost all older versions of the browsers above, though IE certainly has large degradation prior to IE9.
