Foundation is the first and most advanced responsive front-end framework in the world. It lets you quickly prototype and create sites and apps that work on any device (smartphones up through desktops and TV displays) with a library of tested components.
Foundation doesn’t require any particular back end. In fact, Foundation has been used with dozens of back-end and CMS technologies, and Foundation is used by hundreds of thousands of sites every day to deliver rock-solid responsive sites.
Foundation is Mobile First
Mobile First is two parts technology and two parts philosophy. Foundation is built in such a way that it encourages a mobile-first approach, designing your site or app for the small device first, then expanding that to include larger displays and more full-featured devices. While it’s not required, building this way in Foundation is relatively simple and introduces really useful constraints in product design. We’ve found it to be a big win in designing effective, ubiquitously available products.
What technology is used in Foundation?
Since Foundation only uses front-end technology, it has no incompatibilities with back-end or server technology and has been used with everything from WordPress and Drupal to .Net.
