    This looks pretty awesome! I get tired of using Foundation/Bootstrap for everything, and I've wanted to give Bourbon/Neat a try. Really like the modular approach as well.

      What I love is how using them doesn't add any overhead (except if you include all of bitters but even that isn't bad) doesn't add any file size or bloat to your content.

    Perfect! This is going to speed up the prototyping phase for me at least. Keep it going thoughtbot.

    This is really very great but honest side question: Why is it cool when free prepackaged component packs like this get released but everyone freaks out and gets angry when someone like Squarespace releases a free logo maker? Is it an open source design thing?

      I think it's about developer/designer empowerment. Squarespace logo was (wrongly, I believe) accused of showing customers that they didn't need any expertise to make something look good.

      Refills (and the Bourbon family) still requires a developer or designer to become awesome.

        also you are taking components with little or no style or design in them. This is more like using foundation or bootstrap, but even more agnostic approach.

        @Edward Agreed. You still need taste to design an awesome logo.

    I was already a big fan of Thoughtbot but now I am in love. I've started using this (with Bourbon, Bitters, and Neat) in a new project and it's awesome!

    What are the advantages of this over Foundation?

      Just a different flavor, really. Markup, naming conventions and styling mostly. Sass style of Thoughbot jives a lot better with my own than Foundation
