It is modular. You can choose to only include the things you need (with Sass or SCSS).

It is customisable. You can quickly customise it with Sass variables.

Unlike Bootstrap, Bulma ships with zero Javascript. This is a big plus if you want full control over what Javascript you include on your pages.

without a Saas knowledge.

Everything comes at a cost. If you want to be able to customise it, you need to use Sass or SCSS.

Exactly so, i was wondering if they ever considered newbies on that very level of implementation. Thanks for this input, wanted to know more from experienced users before i proceed.

I don't think everything needs to be beginner-friendly. Being able to use CSS preprocessors like Sass/SCSS has probably become a common skill for the average web developer. I'm not saying all web developers should know Sass/SCSS, but it is common enough that it makes sense to take advantage of it to make Bulma modular and customisable.

Exactly so, it further iterates the fact that one needs to be well grounded in CSS and other helpful tools before attempting to use libraries..many of my friends who were ahead of me hardly can use libraries as i can because while they jumped in, i was learning the core rudiments..you are correct and thanks for the input.
