Figuration was originally based on Bootstrap v3, with the added goal to enhance and embed accessibility functionality into the widgets so it is automatically applied as needed. This approach accelerates functional updates without having to individually revise each project or module. In addition, this method means that development teams can create accessible sites without as much effort and specialized knowledge.
Figuration’s ongoing development has introduced many of the recent features, such as flexbox layout, and utility classes, that can be found in Bootstrap v4 and v5. In some cases we have made only slight changes to Bootstrap components for accessibility and consistency with our configuration scheme, while other Figuration components are built from scratch. Figuration leverages Sass to provide variables that can be used to customize visuals and layout, as well as provide the ability to remove portions of generated CSS for increased performance.
