Should you be using CSS frameworks?

Paul Boag

There are literally hundreds of CSS frameworks that make coding quicker and easier than ever before. But should we be using frameworks to develop live websites?

There is a lot of debate over CSS frameworks. There is no denying that they make websites quicker and therefore cheaper to produce. However, some are concerned about using a third party framework that they do not fully understand. Others argue that many frameworks output overly bloated code.

Because this is a hotly debated topic, it is ideal for season 7 of the podcast, which debates the big questions surrounding web design. With that in mind…

This house proposes that third party CSS frameworks should not be used on live websites.
