What is it?
BigfootCSS is a 22k uncompressed / 6k compressed CSS stylesheet that can be used to aid you in the styling of your web pages.
It is a collection of real world CSS classes, box model fixes, generic classes for various common styles, standard Ad sizes, and a solid browser reset based on Eric Meyer’s CSS reset
. It can be applied to the whole page, or it can simply be applied to
a particular element within the page and its children. This latter option is very useful for CMS module development as it makes it easy to style just your module without being affected by or affecting the host page.
If you have written a module that sits inside of DotNetNuke, WordPress, Jumla, etc. you know what I mean. You can’t control the skin in which your module runs, but you have to provide a reasonable amount of protection to ensure the proper layout of your module.
You must also be a good citizen of the ecosystem and not allow your styles to bleed into the rest of the skin. BigfootCSS solves this problem very easily by only targeting elements with a certain id.
