What is Foundation?
Who uses Foundation?
Why developers like Foundation?
Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Foundation in their tech stack.
ReactQL is written in TypeScript to provide full types/Intellisense, and pick up hard-to-diagnose goofs that might later show up at runtime. React makes heavy use of Webpack 4 to handle transforming your code to an optimised client-side bundle, and in throws back just enough code needed for the initial render, while seamlessly handling
import statements asynchronously as needed, making the payload your user downloads ultimately much smaller than trying to do it by hand.
React Helmet was chosen to handle
<head> content, because it works universally, making it easy to throw back the correct
<title> and other tags on the initial render, as well as inject new tags for subsequent client-side views.
<style> tags when using #StyledComponents.
React Router handles routing, because it works both on the server and in the client. ReactQL customises it further by capturing non-200 responses on the server, redirecting or throwing back custom 404 pages as needed.
Koa is the web server that handles all incoming HTTP requests, because it's fast (TTFB < 5ms, even after fully rendering React), and its natively #async, making it easy to async/await inside routes and middleware.
I use it for a lot of professional work where I might need more than just a responsive grid. Has a great set of mixins and components and also some nice JS-modules. I love that its so style-agnostic. Really easy to add custom styling. Foundation
Foundation has been my choice for years over Bootstrap and other similar CSS frameworks due to the naming conventions, well-designed built-in components, and it plays well with React when I'm not using ElementalUI instead. Foundation
- Semantic: Everything is semantic. You can have the cleanest markup without sacrificing the utility and speed of Foundation.
- Mobile First: You can build for small devices first. Then, as devices get larger and larger, layer in more complexity for a complete responsive design.
- Customizable: You can customize your build to include or remove certain elements, as well as define the size of columns, colors, font size and more.
- Professional: Millions of designers and developers depend on Foundation. Now we have business support, training and consulting to help grow your product or service.
