CSS

Here is my portal page for CSS.

Intro

Twitter Bootstrap

  • I use Twitter Bootstrap, rather than write CSS from scratch and/or copy-n-paste CSS from different resources. It is very efficient web UI toolkit and provides more than CSS.
  • Customize themes. After a while, you may get tired of the default theme, you can customize themes at either the official website (not interactive) or interactive website like Bootstrap ThemeRoller. Or, you can simply well-designed themes from website like Bootswatch (free but few themes) and WrapBootstrap (paid but more themes).
  • CDN. BootstrapCDN provides CDN for Bootstrap and Bootswatch themes.
  • Alternatives. I haven’t used other alternatives (e.g. Flat UI Kit), since I don’t have a good reason to switch.
