So why am I contemplating using Thoughtbot products when Bootstrap is so popular and much widely used in the web community?
- Bourbon – “A simple and lightweight mixin library for Sass.”
- Neat – “A lightweight semantic grid framework for Sass and Bourbon.”
- Bitters – “Scaffold styles, variables and structure for Bourbon projects.”
- Refills – “…prepackaged patterns and components, built on top of Bourbon, Bitters, and Neat.”
The idea of using clean and semantic markup that is based entirely on Sass mixins was pretty much the key factor which attracted me to try out Bourbon, Neat, Bitters and Refills.
