“10 Really Outstanding and Useful CSS Grid Systems” – This article has a great, concise definition of what a CSS grid is and what its most compelling features are. Caution: most of the grids mentioned here aren’t responsive.
Basic responsive CSS grids
- Less Framework – A very basic, no-thrills-no-spills CSS grid. The sites gives very helpful illustrations showing you exactly how the content adapts to different device widths. Includes options for desktop, tablet, wide mobile, and mobile.
- Columnal – This grid starts at 1140px wide instead of the traditional 960-ish. Supports nested columns (not unique to this grid even though it says it is). Visit the demo page for an extensive demonstration of the column options at work.
- 320 and Up – A departure from the normal CSS grid development approach as this one is built from mobile up, not desktop down. A well-intentioned “mobile first” approach, yet impractical for older browsers (IE8 and below); since they don’t support media queries, they always get a stripped-down mobile layout even at desktop widths.
