What tools integrate with UIkIt?
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.
