How to Use the UIkit Design Framework

UIkit is a lightweight and modular front-end framework, developed by YooTheme, who are also famous for their Joomla and WordPress designs.

UIkit is a standalone framework that doesn't rely on any particular CMS. UIkit gives you a comprehensive collection of HTML, CSS, and JS components which is simple to use, easy to customize and extendable.

This week's new class is "How to Use the UIkit Design Framework". Follow along with these videos. You'll take a non-responsive HTML website and convert it into a powerful, responsive, grid-based design.

We recently published classes on two more popular design frameworks, Bootstrap, and Zurb, so you'll be able to easily compare these design frameworks.
