GSS Aims to Improve CSS

  • By Developer.com Staff

A startup called The Grid is launching a new open source library called Grid Style Sheets (GSS) that it says can solve some Web user interface layout problems. Based on JavaScript and HTML5, GSS offers an alternative to Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) or the Famo.us JavaScript framework for Web design.

"Bottom line, it's [intended] to really fix the fundamental problems with CSS, particularly with the layout mechanisms within CSS," said Dan Tocchini, president and CEO of The Grid. He added that CSS is "really frustrating. And that's why you see a lot of websites that look the same." He described GSS as an "arithmetic constraint solver that solves cyclic dependencies in your layout logic."
