About Base Template?

Base Template is a small collection of well-organized CSS files that can help you rapidly develop sites that look beautiful at any size, be it a 17" laptop screen or an iPhone. It's based on a responsive grid, but also provides very basic CSS for typography, buttons, forms and media queries. Go ahead, resize this super basic page to see the grid in action.

Three Core Principles

Base Template is built on three core principles:

  • A Responsive Grid Down To Mobile: Elegant scaling from a browser to tablets to mobile.
  • Fast to Start: It's a tool for rapid development with best practices
  • Style Agnostic: It provides the most basic, beautiful styles, but is meant to be overwritten.
