Frontend frameworks have become the staple for quick design projects. The big contenders like Bootstrap and Foundation get plenty of attention, but there are lots of great alternatives.
Semantic UI is an open source alternative which offers beautiful interface features and human-readable HTML/CSS.
Looking over some of the demo layouts, Semantic UI reminds me of Bootstrap’s design style but with an easier syntax. It’s definitely one of the best frontend frameworks you’ve likely never heard about – and it deserves a whole lot more attention from the design/dev community.
In mid-December the Semantic UI team released version 2.1.7 with basic changes and bug fixes. This builds on top of their v2.0 update which was a huge success among users.
The current version features impeccable design styles with numerous features:
Many of these features came with the 2.0 and 2.1 release appending many extra page elements into the library.
If you’re building a small project or webapp I highly recommend crafting the frontend on top of Semantic UI. You can download the full library for free on GitHub and find all the setup info on their documentation page.
