Blueprint is a CSS framework designed to cut down development time and ensure cross-browser compatibility when working with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). It also serves as a foundation for many tools designed to make CSS development easier and more accessible to beginners. Blueprint is released under a modified version of the MIT License, making it free software.



Blueprint's README file lists the following features as being provided out-of-the-box:

  • An easily customizable grid
  • Sensible default typography
  • A typographic baseline
  • Perfected browser CSS reset
  • A stylesheet for printing
  • Powerful scripts for customization
  • Bloat Minimized as much as possible


Blueprint was first created by Olav Bjorkoy and released on August 3, 2007.[1] By August 11, Blueprint included work based on ideas from Jeff Croft, Nathan Borror, Christian Metts, and Eric Meyer.[2] On September 21, with the release of version 0.6, Blueprint included a plugin system, a test suite, Ruby scripts for compression & validation, and styles for forms.[3] The last version released with Olav as the project lead was version 0.7 on February 20, 2008.[4]

On September 2, 2008, Olav retired as the project's leader and passed control to the core team members: Christian Montoya, Joshua Clayton, Chris Eppstein, and Glenn Rempe.[5] Version 0.8 was released on November 11, and included various bugfixes as well as a new "tabs" plugin.[6]

Blueprint as a foundation for other projects

One of the goals stated by the core team is to facilitate the development of new tools for working with CSS.[7] A variety of CSS generators, visual editors, themes, and frameworks are based on Blueprint, many of which can be found on the Blueprint Wiki[8].
