Bootstrap 3 and LESS
SharkSkin includes a default skin, based on Bootstrap 3 and LESS.
- Using Bootstrap 3 and the “mobile first” development approach, the mobile and desktop versions are created simultaneously, with automatically added responsive features, easy to extend base classes (buttons, links, colors, etc.).
- Using LESS reduces the time for development even more, separate blocks of the website are included in different LESS files, the base properties (colors, fonts, etc.) are exported to variables. Extending and modification is extremely fast and easy.
- SharkSkin includes integrated PHP LESS preprocessor (compilator) with two modes of caching and control of any type of variables from the backend. This gives ultimate freedom for customer modification directly from the backend, speed and independence of development and optimized CSS code.
