5 famous CSS methodologies

1. BEM – Block, Elment & Modifier

Block Element Modifier is a methodology, that helps you to achieve reusable components and code sharing in the front-end. It is a highly useful, powerful and simple naming convention to make your front-end code easier to read and understand, easier to work with, easier to scale, more robust and explicit and a lot more strict.

3. SMACSS – Scalable and Modular Architecture for CSS

SMACSS (pronounced “smacks”) is more style guide than rigid framework. There is no library within here for you to download or install. SMACSS is a way to examine your design process and as a way to fit those rigid frameworks into a flexible thought process. It is an attempt to document a consistent approach to site development when using CSS. And really, who isn’t building a site with CSS these days?!
