Skeleton vs Toolkit: What are the differences?

Skeleton: 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; Toolkit: Extensible front-end HTML, CSS, and JavaScript user interface components for the responsive, mobile, and modern web. Toolkit makes use of the latest and greatest technology. This includes HTML5 for semantics, CSS3 for animations and styles, Sass for CSS pre-processing, Gulp for task and package management, and powerful new browser APIs for the JavaScript layer.

Skeleton and Toolkit can be primarily classified as "Front-End Frameworks" tools.

Some of the features offered by Skeleton are:

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

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

  • Mobile First
  • Responsive Design
  • Semantic Markup

Skeleton and Toolkit are both open source tools. It seems that Skeleton with 16.8K GitHub stars and 2.93K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Toolkit with 1.11K GitHub stars and 121 GitHub forks.

        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.
