Gridless is an optionated HTML5 and CSS3 boilerplate for making mobile first responsive, cross-browser websites with beautiful typography.

Some of the core principles of Gridless:

DBY (Don’t Bore Yourself) approach

Gridless takes the boring parts of making websites and webapps out. It comes packed with everything you’re tired of doing in every new project: CSS normalization, beautiful typography, a well-organized folder structure, IE bugfixes and other nice tricks.

Progressive responsiveness

Gridless uses mobile first responsive web design to adapt itself to the device’s width. This means it’ll work anywhere: old feature phones, newer smartphones, tablets, notebooks and bigger desktops. IE6/7/8 don’t support media queries, so we use Respond.js to polyfill that.

Agnostic starting point

Gridless is extremely simple and straightforward. It doesn’t come with any predefined grid systems or non-semantic classes. Gridless is meant to be a starting point, which should be edited, tweaked and overwritten to suit each project’s design requirements.
