1140px CSS Grid Retired

It’s been about two and a half years since I released the 1140px CSS Grid. Initial response was exciting; lots of people used it. However, a lot has happened in that time. When it was released, the concept of Responsive Web Design was in its infancy (I’d never heard of it). Over time, I—and the rest of the web community—have learnt how to do Responsive Web Design properly.

I’m not comfortable with people continuing to use the framework. It was never really a great solution; just an early experiment that a lot of people participated in. It was a one size fits all, desktop first, templated grid system. In short, not how you should make a responsive website.

So it is now retired.
