Skeleton vs UIkIt: 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; UIkIt: A lightweight and modular front-end framework for developing fast and powerful web interfaces. UIkit gives you a comprehensive collection of HTML, CSS, and JS components which is simple to use, easy to customize and extendable.

Skeleton and UIkIt belong to "Front-End Frameworks" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Skeleton are:

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

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

  • LESS - UIkit is developed in LESS to write well-structured, extendable code which is easy to maintain.
  • Components - A collection of small, responsive components using consistent and conflict-free naming conventions.
  • Customizer - UIkit's very basic style can be extended with themes and is easy to customize to create your own look.

"Minimalist" is the primary reason why developers consider Skeleton over the competitors, whereas "Complete GUI" was stated as the key factor in picking UIkIt.

        Material Design for Angular

        Provides common user interface like dialogs, menus, etc. Is modular and hight customisable. A part from the grid system, is not used directly, but has as layer of abstraction build with web components, and typescript as far as possible with the time and working constraints, to be reused in other projects.

        UI Kit provides so many great features out of the box. It provides all the tools to build a rich interface with very little configuration. Many of the modules are well documented and are relevant to the common trends we are seeing on websites today.

        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.
