What was curious was there was all this CSS work all done already for you, including icons. Digging further I found out that one of the many projects Turbogears takes in, is Bootstrap. It’s website describes Bootstrap as “Sleek, intuitive, and powerful front-end framework for faster and easier web development.” but what it means to me is a bunch of guys who understand HTML and CSS way better than me have made it easy for me to build a decent web application.
While the framework won’t suit everyone’s tastes, it makes a lot of the formatting decisions so much easier. The thing is, in all the Turbogears documentation I have read I’ve not heard it mentioned. Not sure why, its pretty awesome (not SQLAlchemy awesome but not many things are).
