Skeleton Instead Of Blueprint (Self-Rejected) HTML5 instead of transitional

Here is a Yii CMS that works with it :
user/password : admin/admin

And I prefer not to follow the sheep.
What makes you think that the developers of Twitter Bootstrap provides better support than the developers of Zurb Foundation?

For the next Project I will try zurb or probably skeleton, not sure right now.
To the Topic: I think for yii it would be best to ship with a choice of css frameworks or no default style at all and then let everyone pick what suits best. It would require to update the tutorial pages for newbies tho and show differences between the available choices.
my 2 cents,

Why not a theme like the one from Haiku-OS:

It's a 960 fluid-fixed / responsive CSS framework with a nice consistent UI that reminds of Bootstrap —which I'm not sure it's the best idea, although it looks good imho.
Anyway: here it is: http://gumbyframework.com/

If it's popularity, there's no question about it: Bootstrap.
And the Yii team has chosen that one.
But, one important 'but': they've promised to make it easy to plug in whatever css framework we want.
And that's good enough for me.

That is all what I wanted to hear. Provide us with defaults but leave us free to choose.
I would like to go to tiny bit further, please.
Yii is a PHP framework. Not a JS or CSS one. I sincerely believe that the core team should concentrate on PHP, making it the most awesome framework out there.
It should provide us with defaults, currently jQuery and (probably) Bootstrap. But we should be able to replace those with what we want/need.
For my part, I want to do some experimentation with the Dojo tookit. And I'm sure there are people out there thinking about Mootools and some other JS framework.
Folks, these are truly exciting times. The number of CSS/JS frameworks are growing rapidly. We choose based on our needs and likes. The only one and true framework here is Yii. This is why We/I are/am here.
What I need from Yii:
- Ease of use (most important!)
- Power (when I need it... Right now, I'm making a 5 pages "vitrine", so I don't need it... But I do have a project...)
Just for example! Yii is a MVC PHP framework. It provides us with "view" pages". Why not use Dojo for the "V"? Everything that is shown to the user would come from Dojo. Everything else is provided by Yii as the backend. (didn't do it yet, just a thought for experiment).
I will love to read what you have to say about this.

But, I think I'll look at foundation too. I just discover it with these topic and the other one in Yii 2 forum...
It would be great, if we could choose which CSS framework we want :
yiic webapp --skel=Foundation yiic wepapp --skel=Bootstrap yiic webapp --skel=BluePrint yiic webapp --skel=UserContributedSkeletonUrl
with automatic downloading
That's the way to go. Yiiframework is a PHP framework. Not a JS/CSS one! I would love it if it could provide me with defaults so I can do fast prototyping but then, let me choose and let me do the "sugar" thinghies.
IMVHO, the Yii core team should concentrate on making our PHP framework easy to use, fast, lightweight and powerful, not giving us sugar candies (which is bad for you health!).
You build a 5 pages "vitrine"? Defaults are great. You just need to adjust colors and put a logo out there.
You build anything else "serious"?
You want your own stuff:
- Semantic HTML, go for it (or not)!
- your own CSS style (or some framework you like)
- jQuery or Dojo Toolkit or MooTools or YUI or yours or whatever...
Something that will say you did it.
The only real foundation we use should be Yii.
