Bootstrap and WordPress

A recent project had me building a highly customized wordpress website using the Twitter Bootstrap 3 framework. Custom websites can often be designed in such a way that comes into conflict with the way Bootstrap wants it. And when you may only be using a small portion of the Bootstrap functionality and UI, it makes sense to consider simpler alternatives.

The Zurb Foundation and Skeleton responsive frameworks are great alternatives to Bootstrap (without all the Javascript and Kitchen Sink).

Either framework, they all come in LESS & SASS versions. Ready for development.
