Gridlock / Projects / Ben Plum Syntax Gridlock features three distinct grid sizes that correspond to specific screen sizes: desktop, tablet and mobile. Desktop features a full 12 or 16 column grid, tablet snaps down to 6 or 8, and mobile contains only 3. The syntax is simple and easily read: [target device]-[column count]. Using this method, a cell can be easily adjusted to fit the target device's screen size by applying the appropriate class names: desktop-8 tablet-4 mobile-3. Gridlock also includes some fraction helper classes, -full, -half and -third.
Golden Grid System GGS was my next step after Less Framework. Instead of a fixed-width grid, it used a fully fluid-width one, without even a maximum width.

Less Framework 4 I called Less Framework "a CSS grid system for designing adaptive websites". It was basically a fixed-width grid that adapted to a couple of then popular screen widths by shedding some of its columns. It also had matching typographic presets to go with it, built with a modular scale based on the golden ratio. The resources it was originally published with are still available on GitHub.
