Robust front end frameworks will provide websites with a toolkit of ready-to-use features that can setup website layouts and elements without coding everything from the ground up. HTML & CSS design templates are provided by frameworks to enhance typography, forms, buttons, navigation and interface components. Using frameworks can have many benefits:

The Foundation Framework philosophy is rapid development of prototypes. Foundation uses the dynamic cascading stylesheets LESS and SASS to provide utility classes and features to developers. A main advantage to Foundation is that the framework does not impose any particular design patterns or templates. Rather, it allows developers to decide on beneficial features that can be integrated into websites or web applications.

The Twitter Bootstrap philosophy is a design-it-yourself approach by providing a toolbox of ready-to-use components. Websites built upon the Twitter Bootstrap Framework have the advantage of using many pre-stylized web elements and layouts.
