Cards

Yesterday I received an email from Socialbiz UserGroup (I highly recommended to join this UG) with some updates regarding Bootstrap. Among one of the updates is the pre-announcement of Bootstrap 4. One of the main new features in BS4 turns out to be Cards.

Cards? What’s new about that? In my current development project I am using cards to display content in a container:

cards_design01

cards_design02

Components not Cards

And in a long ago blast (year 2002) we were already using cards:

philips_design

Material Design

Excuse me, by that time we called cards ‘components’. Heck we were even using Material Design principles with layered information:

philips_material_design

 

If you want to take a look at web design early 2000’s or you want to get inspiration how to set up a guide for your application developers  here is a link to a style guide.

Meanwhile I will be looking forward to the upcoming updates in Bootstrap 4. Nevertheless I welcome the ability to work with standardized definitions of cards =)
