stellar is based on the flexbox layout mode and is build using LESS mixins.
behind the scenes
why I did it
The flexbox model
- helps building responsive layouts without frameworks
- decreases the code needed to position elements
- makes adjusting width and height intuitively easy
LESS mixins give the opportunity of renaming flexbox properties and values in a semantically more sensible way.
why use stellar
stellar hides the flexbox model behind what we all can get our heads around:
x and y-axis positioning.
Vendor prefixes are included.
It keeps your HTML clean and tidy.
