It was about time! With so many good CSS developers keeping chunks of code aside to be reused across projects, a framework was imminent. Olav Bjørkøy takes the credit for building the first one – Blueprint. There is an impressive tutorial that shows how easy it is to customize grid layouts using it. Among the CSS files there are ones dedicated for grid, typography and for resetting values that are set by the browsers. It surely will be useful as a lot of best practices get implemented across projects. I have only two concerns regarding this – flexibility in terms of building variable layouts like elastic, liquid and fixed, and whether the size of CSS files would matter. Otherwise I think it will be useful, at least as a library, if not as a framework. Habari might be one of its first applications.
