QuestionA little advice... Pin

Hi folks,

I've spent the last eight months working on a responsive framework as I wanted an alternative to the ones that I saw out on the interwebs.

Here it is.

http://responsivebp.com/[^]

We use it at work for every site now and I've got a bit of pick-up in the wild (mostly within the Umbraco community) but no matter what I do I can't seem to get it really noticed. I've written up comprehensive docs and tweeted the crap out of it too.

Most people just seem to want to jump on the Bootstrap (bloated, buggy) bandwagon or worse still that weird Semantic-UI framework that to me makes absolutely no sense. (Why make divs look like buttons?)

I find it very frustrating and at times I wonder whether to keep going on it as it's a hell of a lot of work for one guy or just throw in the towel.

The code is lightweight, good and well tested also. It hasn't let us down at work yet and has saved us tons of development time.

How would you go about getting it noticed? Should I bother, am I simply wasting my time?

Any advice is welcome.

Thanks
JimBob SquarePants
