Timing sometimes can be a strange thing, it can be nice when it works in your favour.
Just as I’ve started creating my own web UI toolkit, I get the news that Twitter open sourced their toolkit called Bootstrap. The timing couldn’t be any better for me, for the following reasons:
- A few months ago I had come to the conclusion that 960 Grid System was a great choice for structuring web pages in a scalable manner
- I’ve checked out lots of resources for creating nice looking page style elements, via Mashable, and I have yet to find the one “killer toolkit”. So, I’ve been reluctantly looking to make my own – with my non-existing front-end design skills, that was going to be exciting
- Two of the projects that I am working on at the moment have now got embryonic style elements, it was time to dress them up a bit
