I really like Bulma dog.

Bulma has to be my all time favorite CSS framework. I have used it in production at a large company I worked for and it stood up great! My next job I wrote most of the CSS myself. That held up fine too, but not as well, and it was a HUGE pain to write.

I have always hated using big heavy style frameworks like Bootstrap or Foundation, mostly because of their dependency on jQuery. And sure there are packages for react & bootstrap, but idk. It just feels klunky and gross. Bulma feels fun sleek and sexy.

I feel like Bulma does just the right amount. It makes no assumptions on your JS, has no dependency to jQuery, it doesn't come with a million different components. It doesn't have a million variants of everything. Just a couple simple great building blocs that I love using. I plan on using Bulma when building Realm of React and probably in the course work itself.

Along these lines, I really like Semantic UI. Bulma appears to share most of the same sensibilities. Semantic has adjective modifiers like large disabled primary button. It does have some jQuery-based components, but all of them are controlled with classes. So I just use the classes to control the same behavior myself. I literally only use the CSS distribution of it. I've also had great success with it in production. We only use a handful of CSS to patch in minor visual variations. I think I'll give Bulma a try too.

I have never tried semantic, I should give it a shot.

I've recently started using Bulma more, and love it so much! I really liked Milligram when it came out a few years ago, mostly because of its grid system, and Bulma uses a very similar grid with just enough extra goodies.

Heard of it but never used it. Maybe I’ll try it and report back!

I was excited by tailwind until I read through the docs. Very configuration-heavy. Might be worth it on larger projects.

I love Bulma too, and it's highly customizable if you are using Sass.
