Moved my website over the Pure.css frameworkPureCSS Website
Finally got around to doing a bit of a refresh on the site.
I’ve been using pretty much the same CSS for the better part of a decade now with only a few tweaks every couple of years.
Because of this the CSS had no concept of mobile display sizes and looked all scrunched up and like complete crap on mobile devices.
I haven’t really kept up-to-date with the improvements to CSS since the 2000s so wasn’t sure what to do but i’d heard of Bootstrap so decided to take a look.
I started playing with it yesterday evening and converting the site, but after several hours i didn’t have the responsiveness i wanted. I’m sure i could have got it working if i’d persevered but it was getting late so i left things for the night.
Having slept on things, i decided that Bootstrap was a bit overarching for my modest needs.
I looked around for alternatives and settled on Pure.css. A couple of hours later i had my site in a basic responsive state.
It’s not completely what i’d like, and i’ll tweak things a bit the next time i get in a websity mood, but at least it should no longer be illegible on mobile devices.
Maybe one of these days i’ll even get around to doing a complete redesign and make more use of the advanced features of Pure.css (i’m only really using the grid layout stuff at the moment).
