Responsive Frameworks are becoming increasingly popular. In this article, Monks try to come up with some of the leading Responsive HTML5 frameworks, tools and tips for front-end web developers.
Bootstrap is increasingly becoming a popular framework. It covers a host of utilities required to create responsive websites. Bootstrap has a 12-grid responsive layout, 13 custom jQuery plugins for common UIs like carousels and modal windows, a Bootstrap customizer, and more. Moreover, Bootstrap has a robust documentation and so many themes to choose from. Additionally, it is quite sleek and intuitive. Bootstrap includes support for the two most popular CSS preprocessors, Less and Sass. This open source framework easily and efficiently scales your project with one code base, from phones to tablets to desktops.
Foundation is another popular responsive front-end framework. With this modern HTML5 framework, you can approach web design either mobile first, or from big displays down to mobile sizes. Foundation features rapid-prototyping capabilities, a responsive grid system and much more. Foundation is by ZURB, a company of product designers focused on providing web-based solutions. It has clean and commended markup, customizable elements like fonts and colours and a faster speed of coding compared to other frameworks. Some of the leading companies like National Geographic, Mozilla and The Washington Post use Foundation.
Skeleton is one of the simpler responsive and HTML5 frameworks available for the front-end developers. Some of the features include a responsive layout grid, standard media queries for your device-specific CSS style properties, a CSS class for responsive image elements that scale with the layout grid and a PSD template for mocking up your web designs. Skeleton is not a UI framework, but a development kit that provides the most basic style as a foundation.
One of the most popular frameworks that allow the front-end developers to develop HTML5 websites and apps in no time is the HTML5 Boilerplate. Included in HTML5 Boilerplate is a mobile-friendly HTML template, placeholder icons, CSS resets for normalizing/standardizing your style sheet property values, standard media queries for popular viewing screens, an HTML5 shiv for non-modern web browsers, and more.
Summing it all up, there are many more frameworks for creating heavenly HTML5 websites and apps like Montage HTML5 Framework, SproutCore, Zebra etc. These frameworks are super accurate and have the capabilities to develop HTML5 websites in full pace.
