 Formee: UI Framework for Forms


Formee is a UI Framwork for Web Forms

Twitter Bootstrap, Foundation and UIKit are Front End Frameworks. However, sometimes you don’t need that much from a UI Framework. Sometimes you just need a framework for your forms.

Formee does just that. It focuses only on web forms’ design and interactivity. It has grid based width defaults, success and error messages.


Installation requires you to just extract Formee to a publicly accessible directory and put in the following code:

<!-- jquery for equal height elements -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery-1.6.4.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/formee.js"></script>
<!-- css for structure -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/formee-structure.css" type="text/css" media="screen" />
<!-- css for style -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/formee-style.css" type="text/css" media="screen" />
