Introduction

Flamingo is a framework based on Gridsome, a Vue.js powered Jamstack framework, and TailwindCSS, a utility-first CSS framework for rapidly building custom designs. With these tools Flamingo builds static generated websites & apps that are fast by default.

Gridsome

Gridsome is a Jamstack framework. Jamstack lets you build fast and secure sites and apps delivered by pre-rendering files and serving them directly from a CDN, removing the requirement to manage or run web servers.

Gridsome generates static html that hydrates into a Vue SPA once loaded in the browser. This means you can build both static websites & dynamic apps with Gridsome.

TailwindCSS

Tailwind CSS is a highly customizable, low-level CSS framework that gives you all of the building blocks you need to build bespoke designs without any annoying opinionated styles you have to fight to override.

Most CSS frameworks do too much. They come with all sorts of predesigned components like buttons, cards, and alerts that might help you move quickly at first, but cause more pain than they cure when it comes time to make your site stand out with a custom design.

Tailwind is different. Instead of opinionated predesigned components, Tailwind provides low-level utility classes that let you build completely custom designs without ever leaving your HTML.

Fontawesome

Flamingo uses Fontawesome to get vector icons and social logos on our website. Fontawesome is web's most populair icon set and toolkit.

Each and every symbol is designed from scratch against guidelines and standards forged from years of experience of illustrating and designing icons. The result is a consistent look and feel that spans thousands of icons across three unique styles.

Font Awesome has grown to have over 5,000 icons and continues to add the most popular and needed icons. Stop hunting down missing icons you need, combining from multiple sets, or finding that company's official logo in a dirty corner of the internet.

Our icons are easy to use on the web out of the box. And that box includes support styling to help you size, place, style, and even animate any icon. See what you can do with one line of our easy to remember code.
