  • "Cascade Framework" is a CSS framework for developers.
  • Some of the important features are:
    • Layout
    • Typography
    • Icons
    • Component Classes
  • The main thing is re-usability of the CSS classes. This helps to minimize redundant CSS classes.
  • In this Demo, We will see some of the cascade framework features, like layout and panel.
  • Some of the classes:
    • col
      • Provides a column in a column-based layout.
    • sizeXofY
      • Provides the size of an element.
      • Where X is part occupied, Y is the total number of parts.
      • Example: Size3of12--means 3 parts from 12 parts.
    • cell
      • A single component.
    • background-<xyz>
      • Represents the background color.
