I have been working with Twitter Bootstrap lately and found it is a quick and dirty way to get a CSS framework up and running quickly in Rails. Initially I had a hesitancy about CSS frameworks and still so even though I have used Bootstrap on several sites.
I have been trying to use the "less is better" approach to sites and Bootstrap allows for this approach. One problem is that using a framework such as Bootstrap can lead to laziness and sterile sites. The positive is that frameworks allow you to work faster. The truth in the end is how well you know your tools and how you use them.
