Some of the features offered by Gumby are:

  • Syntactically Awesome - Gumby 2 is built with the power of Sass. Sass is a powerful CSS preprocessor which allows us to develop Gumby itself with much more speed — and gives you new tools to quickly customize and build on top of the Gumby Framework.
  • Brilliantly Flexible - Gumby 2 is an amazing responsive CSS Framework. Websites built today must be mobile friendly in order to survive. Why have two different sites for mobile and desktop when you can have your main site be one size fits all? Gumby Framework is also incredibly customizable
  • it’s as easy as download, tweak, deploy!

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

  • Responsive Grid Down To Mobile
  • Fast to Start
  • Style Agnostic

        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.
