• passionfruit •  
 maturing
 github/rolandixor/passionfruit
Born out of frustration with mundane repetition, Passionfruit.css aims to simplify the design process for web designers. No more mucking around in your CSS setting the same values for padding and margins on different elements. With basic, reusable classes that can be stacked like bricks, you can build the next masterpiece with less stress, and in less time.

Eventually, the goal is also to make Passionfruit cleaner, leaner, and more versatile, so that your websites can load quickly, but still adapt to any form factor with ease. Already, Passionfruit provides a number of responsive classes and components, as demonstrated by this site itself.

• firefly suite •  
 concept
"More playground than application"

The goal with FireFly is to create a suite of components than can be swapped on the fly, so that everything happens in one place with no need to navigate away. The concept is still being fleshed out, but look for the first code to drop soon.

tenets:
  • Every page is a canvas - its contents a work of art.
  • You're here to be served.
    You should never have to navigate to somewhere else to find what you're looking for.
  • Less reliance on menus.

• glass-maker •  
 concept
 github/rolandixor/glass-maker
Add glass to any website with a single css stylesheet! Can be used with passionfruit, as the class names do not overlap.

• orchid-mantis •  
 concept
A mobile-first, front-end development framework.
Much like a real life Mantis, Orchid Mantis will stay "quiet" and unassuming, both in design elements and in terms of the developer experience.

Designed with back-end developers in mind, it will be quick and easy to build mobile-ready websites and interfaces that look great out of the box.

Currently in initial development.

• garden variety •  
 in early development
 rolandixor.pro/garden-variety
Garden Variety is a social network interface template. It consists (currently) of a single CSS stylesheet, and a single demo page.

However, the intention is to turn it into a fully fledged suite of CSS stylesheets and a JS library, that can be used as an interface for a new social network. It's an ambitious idea, but I'm excited to see where it ends up.
