    Looks nice, but


    Kube Framework is absolutely free.

    That’s not a license.

      And it’s not on GitHub. Looks like a nice alternative to Twitter Bootstrap but it’s not going to gain widespread support without some licensing clarity and a GitHub repo.

      1. 2

        One of the best parts of Bootstrap is using the LESS files as a base for your own styles. Until Kube shows up on Github, this won’t be possible.

      2. 1

        It’s unnecessarily ambiguous, but it’s a license. There’s questions about the definition of the word “free” in this context. Is it gratis, or is it libre? It gets even more confusing, in the code it reads “License: free” which raises the question: is the license free or is “free” the name of some license. I think the license on the site takes precedence, implicitly naming it the “free” license. It’s all pretty dumb.

        Considering the context is software licenses, a free license is one that grants rights to modify and distribute software in the “libre” sense. The term “absolutely” can be easily shoehorned to pretty much let you get away with murder (in the context of the code).

        It’s basically a shitty version of the WTFPL.

      3. 3

        Yet another style framework where <p> isn’t serif by default? Lovely :/

        They have impressive documentation on the first two pages, but it trails off later. I suppose when it gains traction this will be fixed.

        1. 2

          I’m tempted to start using this just for the standardised form styling.

          Interested in seeing how it works cross-browser, I’d really love if these frameworks included screenshots of how their styling looks in older browsers.

          1. 2

            I like how there are normal grid box sizes that have gutters, as well as splits that don’t. I always find myself creating my own splits in Bootstrap whenever I need elements where their background color/image meet up with each other.
