General Discussion

I am working on a project for a client that requires responsiveness. I am thinking of using either Foundation or Twitter Bootstrap?

Would it be ok to use either of these frameworks on this project?

I don't see why not. As long as you do not allow the framework dictate the design for the client. Personally, I'm a fan of bootstrap, but I'm sure foundation is great too.

Hi.

The two would be ok I believe. My preference goes to foundation because I used it a lot, its easy, powerfull, and the community is helpful. Also, foundation have Sass/CSS, and I like Sass. Based on your need, you might need one or the other, its up to you.

Here's two links that might help you decide:

http://responsive.vermilion.com/compare.php <---- An in-depth, more pragmatical analyze of various responsive framework, including bootstrap and foundation.

Which one you chose is up to you, but I wouldn't recommend taking anything else than Bootstrap or Foundation if you need to be quick and things to still be done well.
