What tools integrate with Skeleton?
Like Bootstrap, It offers the same CSS framework service (Which I prefer to say cheatsheet ;)) but less complex and cleaner look and to the point.
I used it for some private stuff lately where I only needed a grid and was looking for the leanest framework there is.
