Fluid Project is evaluating CSS Frameworks as a possible tool:

  • for implementing project websites, and component demos
  • to integrate in components themselves to bring additional features

After a research and evaluation period (see: CSS Framework Research Notes), Foundation and Bootstrap have emerged to be the front runners. This attempts to document in detail the requirements of the framework to be used.


Features that we want:
  • Theme generation using preprocessor

  • UIO interactions with frameworks (features, positive/negative interactions, architecture)

  • Can we use a framework to remove our !important injection

  • responsive layouts

  • themes easier to generate
  • UIO features such as text size and font styles
  • resets
  • media queries should use EM's
  • ease of customization
  • ease of namespacing Framework classnames


  • What if a Fluid component is using a particular framework, what are the consequences for an integrator? What happens if they are using an existing (different or same) framework? In the case of the same framework, we may have made some customizations - what happens in this framework-framework interaction?

Nice to have:

  • tooltips


  • No labels
