re: Do we really need a CSS Framework? VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

I'm in favor of having good HTML and CSS skills before considering a CSS framework. Bootstrap reminds me a bit of jQuery in a sense that you could skip learning standard JavaScript in the browser in favor of jQuery. It creates some "knowledge debt" because knowing Bootstrap or jQuery is not the same as knowing the underlying languages. Now that jQuery and possibly Bootstrap are declining in popularity, not having those fundamental skills becomes an issue when your teams move away from them.

 

could skip learning standard JavaScript in the browser in favor of jQuery.

Can't agree more.

 

What I see among my programmer coworkers (who are nearly all back-end people) is a liberal use of Bootstrap classes without any knowledge of what those classes do.
