The takitapart CSS Framework

A semantic, fluid, responsive framework cobbled together from several awesome projects by people much more clever than myself.

Built for me, shared with you

it wouldn't be possible without

The takitapart framework is largely adapted from Joni Korpi's fantastic Golden Grid System, with several SASS mixin's to do the heavy math. Additional code from the Normalize.css and HTML5 Boilerplate projects was also used.

The fire from the vessels

...was most ineffectual, owing, as I afterward learned, to the unexpected suddenness of the first volley, which caught the ship's crews entirely unprepared and the sighting apparatus of the guns unprotected from the deadly aim of our warriors.


No silly grid classes. Put layout directives in the stylesheets where they belong.


Fixed width is dead. Say goodbye to horizontal scrolling.


No compromise. A design that works on all devices, no matter their size.


Vertical grids, em-based design. Your content deserves it.


Whether simple or complex, flexible form layouts are ready for use.


Basic print-friendly design is included.

Built with SASS

Let our SASS mix-ins do the heavy lifting.

Mobile First

Designed to encourage a Mobile First philosophy.


Need more than 12 columns? Less? No grid at all? No problem!

No one would have believed

I had gone but a short distance further when what seemed to be an excellent trail opened up around the face of a high cliff. The trail was level and quite broad and led upward and in the general direction I wished to go.

this world was being watched

The cliff arose for several hundred feet on my right, and on my left was an equal and nearly perpendicular drop to the bottom of a rocky ravine. I had followed this trail for perhaps a hundred yards when a sharp turn to the right brought me to the mouth of a large cave.
