I work for a university Digital Services team. Our university's main website uses the Ektron CMS (I have my own thoughts about this, but that's irrelevant). Because we maintain a university website, we need to make sure our website is extremely backwards compatible.
We are trying to make a decision as to whether Twitter Bootstrap is conducive to what we're trying to do. Upon review, I've found that Bootstrap uses the CSS preprocessor "*Less Css*". We're currently using *SASS*, which we compile via terminal using Ruby Compass. The downside I'm wondering about while using *Less Css* would be that it compiles using Rhino and Node.js. Would this create issues because
- Less CSS uses Node.js to compile; if someone does not have js enabled in their browser, will it not display the CSS?
- the CSS has to compile each time a page is rendered, will it slow down a pages load time?
What are benefits of Bootstrap?
What are draw backs of Bootstrap?
