On Ajaxian, they had this article about BlueprintCSS. It’s a CSS framework to make grids and other useful base components of a webpage. My main concern however is having equal-height columns. It doesn’t seem to have that, on first glance. My second concern is how detailed it is with great commenting. This is a good thing, but I seriously can’t follow all of it. There is a “science” of CSS-ology that I really have not been keeping up with. I don’t do enough CSS. I probably spend 1 out of every 10 days on it. This is clearly not enough to be on the cutting edge and state of the art. I use jQuery much more often. And lately, I have been completely trapped in PowerPoint.
There is an old saying about gymnasts using the rings (Like this). If you aren’t doing it every day, you can’t do it. I feel like BluePrintCSS is like that. Either you are doing it every day or this is over your head. I am pretty good at CSS, better than most people, but I am not at this level of excellence. I am more like this. It’s the downside of being a jack-of-all trades. I really have trouble becoming a master at anything.
Anyway, the framework looks pretty cool. I will try it next time I have a site to build. Not sure when that will be.
