Hi Felippe,

Awesome post and a cool project. The idea to scope it is soo important for adopting the styles.

Two questions are spinning in my head:

  1. why did you decide against Miligram and Skeleton in the first place

  2. how would you compare plume vs something like MVP.css

Hey! Thanks for your comment!

  1. Skeleton and Milligram are micro-frameworks that i use to fast-build small projects. As there were some points there i would like to be different and i were already experimenting different styling approaches, they automatically became an inspiration.

  2. I didnt know MPV.css. Looks great! MVP.css sure will be a reference for the future. I want a no-classes frameworks by default too, just semantic HTML. MVP seems more mature in this point. I think that the main difference is that Plume is Scoped (as you pointed), but i assume thats easy to achieve with MVP.css. Plume has a larger set of elements styled, also with more consistence (at a first sight): andybrewer.github.io/mvp/mvp.html. The available props to customize are easier to tune on MVP, but Plume seems more complete at this point, but at here i think is more about taste: do you want props or do you want to override selectors? Despite the semantic approach, Plume's also has a nice set of utilities. But at the end, i think its all about your taste and needing. MVP seems really great.
