Skyline helps you create a design system for your website. It encourages a well thought-out CSS architecture, and enables you to develop a reusable and maintainable codebase. The starter kit provides a solid CSS architecture that acts as a scaffolding to support your unique design system. It promotes object-oriented CSS, written in SCSS using BEM notation.
Skyline is a minimal scaffolding, it does not impose a visual style. It contains many layout and structural helpers, utilities, and basic element and module styles that you will build upon. It is really a starting point, an organized set of files that allow you to create your own custom framework.

Vue.js is a library for building interactive web interfaces. It provides the benefits of MVVM data binding and a composable component system with a simple and flexible API. Technically, Vue.js is focused on the ViewModel layer of the MVVM pattern. It connects the View and the Model via two way data bindings. Actual DOM manipulations and output formatting are abstracted away into Directives and Filters.
Philosophically, the goal is to provide the benefits of reactive data binding and composable view components with an API that is as simple as possible. It is not a full-blown framework – it is designed to be a view layer that is simple and flexible. You can use it alone for rapid prototyping, or mix and match with other libraries for a custom front-end stack. It’s also a natural fit for no-backend services such as Firebase.
