Ever since I got into the popular starter toolkit, Bootstrap, I’ve been using LESS in most all my projects and toolkits. LESS is pretty easy to start with but its release cycles and backlog of pull requests are getting rather annoying.
Then came Stylus, which I became aware of through my work with Grunt Contrib, which is frequently updated and includes many features that make everyday life easier. Not to mention that Nib, its CSS3 counterpart, which makes common CSS3 features cake with its mixins that will auto transform things like a simple border-radius property into multiple properties to support the ever so annoying browser prefixes that we must deal with.
So after much debate, I have decided that moving forward I will be using Stylus + Nib. This decision also helped me to look at better approaches to the development techniques I currently use for responsive websites, which make up 50% of my business at the moment. After much research, I found that a Mobile First approach was the right fit going forward. Thus I will be retooling my toolbox to take parts of Bootstrap, 320 and Up, and several other techniques mentioned by some of the webs top gurus.
