Is there a CSS Framework that tries to provide for business applications, specifically?
Many of the polished CSS is aimed at blogging or web publishing needs that are different from the UI needs of a business app. It seems like this must be a problem that someone has solved, but I can't seem to find a solution.
My hope would be that proposed solutions would be language agnostic (work with PHP, ASP, CF, etc.). However, if there is a framework rooted in a language that handles the UI in a very "finished" sense, then I'd be interested in looking at that, even if it meant adopting a framework that forced the use of a particular server-side language.
My goal is not to go MVC, just have some nice looking CSS that would fit an application.
BOUNTY: I decided to start a bounty on this question because I think there must be some useful "starting points" (stated minimally) of CSS which are geared toward web apps, with my preference being that they're hopefully:
- platform independent or accomodating various dev platforms, and
- free or nearly free (as in, not $1000 for a collection of controls)
"Inspirational" Example: (play on words intentional, sorry) I did find a church website development company that published a Design Patterns Library and Code Standards which is very enticing, but it seems like it's usable only to those who develop church sites using their software as a service (?). Regardless, the CSS and complementary graphics are not out there for public consumption.
