I implement websites using Bootstrap 3. Our front end developer is of the opinion that it is best to avoid using the grid system classes and control the positioning of elements from the css.
The reasons given are:
- The grid system was originally meant for rapid prototyping and not for live sites
- There is less clutter in the HTML
- You can control the precise positioning from the style sheets
Please note that all other Bootstrap classes such as container, row etc are used. We simply avoid the grid related column classes.
I would appreciate feedback on this and whether there are any other advantages to not using the grid classes.
