Hello. I am a new web designer and I want to ask what grid system should I use.
The client I have, "just wants a website".
Should I use 960.gs, 1200, or bootstrap grid system?
Bootstrap is by far the most simple and straightforward. If you're just starting out, go ahead and use Bootstrap.
If he ever plans to update this thing on his own, he's going to need a custom wordpress theme built. Being new and asking this question, you do not have the expertise for that.
Honestly, the fact that you have a client at all and are asking this question leads me to believe that he's paying you less than $20. If he can spare more, just give this lead to literally anyone else on /gd/ so we can afford to eat this week and then your client will have a real website.
I sincerely don't believe that you're getting paid 900 euros to create "just a website" when you have to ask /gd/ the difference between 960 and Bootstrap. If so, good luck and I hope you have a contract so you can take him to court when he realizes he's been scammed.
bootstrap was a nightmare to customize for me, I tried everything from semantic to foundation and nothing felt right
all I needed was:
- sensible responsive grid system
- compatible with rem on desktop and mobile
- customizable with SASS
bootstrap 3 doesn't work with rems on mobile
bootstrap 4 is still WIP and the community is small
so I found uikit:
worked near out of the box (had to do some silliness to get SASS) but after I got it set up it worked 100%
