Choosing the right framework that is the perfect fit for your projects could be a little bit overwhelming – there are a lot to choose from. Perhaps, you want to go with popular choices like Bootstrap or Foundation, but if your website is going to be a fairly simple one, you won’t be needing most of the building blocks and materials included in the default package. The good news is that there are a handful of alternatives that are much leaner than Bootstrap or Foundation. Most of these frameworks ship with just the right amount of styles and components to help you get started, while allowing you to be able to extend them in the direction you want for your project.
