        About Himas Rafeek

        Butter Cake is an open source and lightweight modular toolkit for developing with HTML, CSS, and JS. Quickly prototype your ideas or build your entire app with our Sass variables and mixins, responsive grid system, extensive prebuilt components.

        More than 500+ developers use Butter Cake in Short time of it's release, for a few reasons:

        • simple syntax: thanks to Flexbox, the HTML markup required by Butter Cake is both easy to read and lightweight
        • easy to learn: Butter Cake is built for humans, and people pick it up in a matter of minutes thanks to its simple class names
        • 100% responsive: Butter Cake is fully responsive out-of-the-box, making sure both mobile and desktop users have a great visual experience
        • easily customizable: by using Sass variables, it only takes a few lines to create your custom Butter Cake build that satisfies your brand guidelines
        • modular: while Butter Cake comes with tons of features, you can choose to only import the components you need
        • Light Weight: Butter Cake is just 98kb in Size so it's super fast
        • JS Components: Butter Cake includes working Navbar, Tabs, Dropdown, Accordion and Modal, easy to customize

        Butter Cake is also in constant development. Instead of waiting months or years for massive releases, Butter Cake is maintained weekly, allowing bug fixes and improvements to be released quickly.

        While some of the work has been done by additional contributors, the core of Butter Cake is mostly maintained by me: I want to maintain a high level of quality and ensure that each line of code is up to the standards the project has set so far.

        Since maintaining and developing new features takes a considerable amount of time, I am currently exploring the possibility of working on Butter Cake full time.

        Here are some examples of improvements I want to focus on:

        • Customization tool: develop an online tool where it's easy to customize a component and try out its variations
        • Code snippets: a library of useful common Butter Cake snippets
        • Free templates: full page HTML templates to kick start your project
        • Official themes: high quality themes, easily customizable and well documented
        • Lots of documentation improvements

        If you run a business and is using Butter Cake in a revenue-generating product, it would make business sense to sponsor Butter Cake development: it ensures the project that your product relies on stays healthy and actively maintained. It can also help your exposure in the Butter Cake community and makes it easier to attract Butter Cake developers.

        Of course, if Butter Cake has helped you in your personal projects, consider making a recurring pledge. ;-)

        Thank you!

        I will spend all my free time improving the Butter Cake core and its documentation.
