Foundation is a powerful and flexible framework for building prototypes and production code on any type of device.
It has some amazing features like The Grid, enhanced mobility, rapid prototyping, buttons, forms and many more. Let us start from the start.
The Grid lets you lay-out pages quickly and logically because it has a flexible and nestable system. The Grid is flexible. You can change its shape to whatever size you need. It adapts itself to any size screens, from phones to TVs.
It is a layout framework that works on mobile devices, small screens and desktops. It is a twelve column, semi-liquid, mobile-scaling grid, and supports arbitrary nesting.
Foundation helps you work with dozens of styles and elements so that you can quickly put together clickable prototypes and begin polishing the production code. You can always alter the clickable prototypes later. They have forms, buttons, tabs etc. to make your work fun and easy.
With Foundation, you can quickly pay out pages for mobile devices and for desktops. What’s more! You do not need two different sites for that; The Grid is built in such a way that it can be applied to all kinds of devices with the same mark-up.
Foundation can be downloaded from its company website. It includes the base file structure, CSS, JS and images. Its global styles include Eric Meyer’s rock-solid reset, tested styles for typography, links, tables, lists and so on.
Buttons include two base styles, three sizes and several colors that are easy to modify. The forms are simplified by creating two base styles for forms that are tested, include validation styles, have proper spacing etc. They have custom radio buttons, check-boxes and select lists you that you can easily style a form. Like everything else, they are easy to modify.
