Skeleton CDN – a CDN Suitable for Your Every Day Task

Skeleton CDN

You should use Skeleton if you're embarking on a smaller project or just don't feel like you need all the utility of larger frameworks. Skeleton only styles a handful of standard HTML elements and includes a grid, but that's often more than enough to get started. In fact, Skeleton’s homepage is built using Skeleton and has approximately 200 lines of custom CSS (half of which is the docking navigation).

It is used by several small enterprises for their small projects as it is simple and responsive boilerplate that can launch any responsive project.

Features of Skeleton CDN That Will Easy Your Tasks

  1. The Grid

    – The grid is a 12-column fluid grid with a max width of 960px, that shrinks with the browser/device at smaller sizes. The max width can be changed with one line of CSS and all columns will resize accordingly. The syntax is simple and it makes coding responsive much easier. With it, you can easily resize the browser

  2. Typography

    Type is all set with the rems, so font-sizes and spacial relationships can be responsively sized based on a single <html> font-size property. Out of the box, Skeleton never changes the <html> font-size, but it's there in case you need it for your project. All measurements are still base 10 though so, an <h1> with 5.0remfont-size just means 50px.

    The typography base is Raleway served by Google, set at 15rem (15px) over a 1.6 line height (24px). Other type basics like anchors, strong, emphasis, and underline are all obviously included.

    Headings create a family of distinct sizes each with specific letter-spacing, line-height, and margins.

  3. Buttons and Forms

    Buttons come in two basic flavors in Skeleton. The standard <button> element is plain, whereas the .button-primary button is vibrant and prominent. Button styles are applied to a number of appropriate form elements, but can also be arbitrarily attached to anchors with a .button class.

    Forms are a huge pain, but hopefully these styles make it a bit easier. All inputs, select, and buttons are normalized for a common height cross-browser so inputs can be stacked or placed alongside each other.

  4. Media Queries

    Skeleton uses media queries to serve its scalable grid, but also has a list of queries for convenience of styling your site across devices. The queries are mobile-first, meaning they target min-width. Mobile-first queries are how Skeleton's grid is built and is the preferrable method of organizing CSS. It means all styles outside of a query apply to all devices, then larger devices are targeted for enhancement. This prevents small devices from having to parse tons of unused CSS.

These are some of the tools that Skeleton CDN has in store for your developers and small business owners specializing on web designing.

Support for Skeleton CDN

Since Skeleton is built mainly for people that have start-up businesses, the community has helped on its expansion by adding extensions than can be used by the whole community. These added extensions are Skeleton on LESS which is Skeleton built with LESS for easier replacement for grid, color, and media queries and Skeleton on Sass which is Skeleton built with Sass for easier replacement for grid, color, and media queries.

These are the people behind the creation of Skeleton which was built using Sublime Text 3 and designed with Sketch. The typeface Raleway was created by Matt McInerney and Pablo Impallari. Code highlighting by Google's Prettify library. Icons in the header of the documentation are all derivative work of icons from The Noun Project. Feather by Zach VanDeHey, Pen (with cap) by Ed Harrison, Pen (with clicker) by Matthew Hall, and Watch by Julien Deveaux.

With Beluga CDN, which makes use of an IPV6 Network, you may be able to deliver 20-40% faster with its dual stack network. It can also provide real-time traffic statistics up-to-the-second so it is better than Skeleton CDN in terms of updates. You can also easily delete specific content from any location in just a click. It is also user-friendly especially to developers who will most likely use this content delivery network. It has advanced settings, fine control, and automation via a restful API. Just like Skeleton CDN, Beluga CDN also has a myriad of tools to help secure and protect your content.
