Foundation for Apps vs Skeleton: What are the differences?

Developers describe Foundation for Apps as "Angular-powered framework for building powerful responsive web apps, from your friends at ZURB". Foundation for Apps is a framework you can use to build better, more polished single-page web applications that work across many devices. We’ve taken what we’ve learned from building the original Foundation framework to build an entirely new framework just for web apps. On the other hand, Skeleton is detailed as "A Beautiful Boilerplate for Responsive, Mobile-Friendly Development". Skeleton is a small collection of CSS files that can help you rapidly develop sites that look beautiful at any size, be it a 17" laptop screen or an iPhone.

Foundation for Apps and Skeleton belong to "Front-End Frameworks" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Foundation for Apps are:

  • Vertical Grid
  • Independent Scrolling Sections
  • Easier Source Ordering

On the other hand, Skeleton provides the following key features:

  • Responsive Grid Down To Mobile
  • Fast to Start

          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.
