Discussion on: Alternative to Bootstrap??? 🤔

I would say to use Sass until nesting becomes part of CSS, and to write semantic markup. You don't need anything else, and things like Bootstrap hold back long-term progress in favour of short-term ease.

+1 on this.

I've known a couple of people who lean on Bootstrap and use it to avoid learning the fundamentals. I know there are a million things to learn, and it's easy to feel like you're missing out on the latest shiny tool, but I genuinely believe it's unprofessional to not gain at least base proficiency with the fundamentals.
