Dev shop Zurb, which makes the Foundation web framework, has just released Foundation 4. The new version brings a host of new tricks and treats for developers and designers, all intended to bring mobile to the forefront.
The framework, said Zurb reps, has been rewritten to work with mobile-first approaches to product design and development — and the mobile-first trend is, indeed, shaping up to be a defining aspect of modern applications.
“Foundation 4 empowers a designer to reverse their thinking — design for the mobile experience before you design for the desktop,” read a Zurb statement on today’s news.
“One big hurdle for designers and developers is trying to figure out a solid starting place for their mobile designs — for them, Foundation is an excellent starting place and a great way to dive head-first into the world of designing for all types of mobile devices.”
Zurb reps said Foundation 4 brings “smarter, more semantic coding” to the table as well as placeholder classes and “mix-ins.”
