I have been developing for years on the Twitter Bootstrap framework, and  it is phenomenal. Pure and simple, it is the best tool I have used for doing a lot, but writing very little. However, between that Font Awesome, I have found it somewhat lacking.

  • Open circles for stacked icons are too thick.
  • Some icons either don’t exist or require the use of extra icon font packs like this one from Elegant Fonts.
  • The slider options could definitely use some fine-tuning.
  • The media query widths seem to be off by around 1-5 pixels.
  • For some reason, tooltips and popovers do not want to display when written into a PHP look.

Other than the things I have to find ways around or write, in length, myself, I have no real arguments against Bootstrap. It saves me from writing individual media queries, aside from the ones I have to write on my own. To me, this is, by no means, a deal breaker. I still get far more done with it than without it, and it less time.
