The most minimal responsive, flexible grid library you can find. In fact, here’s the whole thing:

.fukol-grid > * {
  flex: 1 0 5em; /* 3 (edit me!) */

marmelab/universal.css: The only CSS you will ever need

Ensure that your class names never go out of sync with your style declarations with this one simple trick:

Take any CSS rule you want to apply, replace : by -, and dots by -dot-, and you get the name of the corresponding universal css classname.

The only thing missing is immutability, so I would suggest also putting !important after each declaration in the CSS. Voila! No more specificity battles.
