Kube Tutorial by Lingulo


HTML5 responsive website


Download it from GitHub

Please note! Due to the use of CSS flexbox this website only works in the latest browser versions. Be sure to know that before using Kube for a production website.

In this quick Kube tutorial we will be creating a very simple yet modern and elegant personal portfolio website using Kube. Kube is a small CSS framework using the latest CSS techniques. The grid system is not using any floats but instead the new CSS flexbox which is already supported in current versions of all mayor browsers. In the future using flexbox will be the default way to create layouts in CSS and Kube is already starting now. Kube doesn’t include any JavaScript functionality like sliders, accordions etc. which might be missing features at first sight. But that is actually the strength of Kube because it is kept small and very basic without any fancy designs or features which would bloat the whole framework with stuff we don’t even need.

And this year, you can expect to see story designs becoming even better by the use of animation sequences that starts when a user scroll down the page. In essence, more and more websites telling stories will be using 3D graphics and HD quality videos, in a bid to increase the level of visual appeal and user’s interactivity.
