    I've been using it since I 1st heard of it. I think it's the best Sass mixin library out there! Great work from the Thought Bot Team!

    Used it with Neat on several projects! Even using postcss-neat on a new project I'm using PostCSS on.

    We use it in most projects! Most recently as part of the frontend build for https://digitalprofile.io/

    Hey Will! We're using it (and Neat, Bitters, and some Refills) at Naritiv on both our homepage and our main (production) app, and we love it. Let me know if you have specific questions on it at all. Would love to see it taken to the next level!

    As many people said above, PostCSS makes things easier. We've stopped using Bourbon long time ago.

    Hi Will,

    We've used Bourbon extensively on projects in the past as well as neat and to a lesser extent bitters and refills.

    Personally I use bourbon in everything, it's used for the UI on one of my own Open Source project ContentTools

    As a company we no longer use neat, bitters or refill, however despite better browser support for CSS features, bourbon is still an wonderful library and part of our pipeline - if you're interested in a recent project we used bourbon on www.2heads.com

    Even if most of the mixins aren't necessary anymore because of Autoprefixer, I still include Bourbon in all my projects, since the mixins won't get compiled anyway.

    The most I use is px to rem function, and sometimes triangle and hide text mixins.

    I've tried Neat, Bitters and Refills and it's not really for me, probably because I use Bootstrap a lot and it's easier for me to think in Bootstrap way in terms of grids and basic component styles.

    I use it for my personal website (www.jordiesaenz.com) and plan to use it for future client projects. I want to like Neat more, but I don't love float-based grid systems.

    I love the mixins and functions by Bourbon, but I use it only once from my previous project.

    I attempted to use Bourbon on a couple of small projects, but I just couldn't get rolling with it easily. I liked the premise, and installing Bourbon was quite easy, but once I started adding things like Neat and Bitters I struggled.

    I got round the issues but it seemed too much of a hassle to continue with, I was worried it was going to produce more hurdles later along the line.

    I'm sure they all work really well together for larger projects, especially if you're using gems to manage everything, but it doesn't work for smaller scale projects. Maybe the things I work on isn't what Bourbon and co are designed for :)

    I also wanted to use Refills, the pre-build components that work with Bourbon, but HTML structure just wasn't up to my standards and didn't allow for easy manipulation into a standard CMS templating language.

    Sorry to be so critical, I really want to like it but it just didn't work for me.

    We actually just started using it and will be wrapping up our first project with it this month. So far it's been great and has helped us speed up our dev process.

    Yes, I use it! But I don't understand why they removed all the CSS3 Mixins recently?!?!

    I use it only for the utility mixins (border radius for example) not for prefixing ever since we switched to autoprefixer.

    I've used it a pretty good bit as well. but honestly mostly use it in order to use Neat. I make use of a few mixins, but have the greatest need for the grid. Build secondhander.com to use it, and working on another property on it right now.

    I do absolutely use it, but I think more as a dependency for neat than anything. autoprefixer makes vendor prefixing even easier and let me write (S)CSS closer to how it should be written, IMO.

    Still love Bourbon and family though, don't get me wrong.
