Tyfy is a framework for better web typography.
At first, I named this project “typography”. This accurately described my goal of encoding typographic rules and patterns. The name later changed to a short form of the portmanteau “typogrify”. So Tyfy rhymes with “WiFi” or “Sci-Fi”.
For more information about how Tyfy came to be, you can read the Medium article.
There are three reasons why I started Tyfy:
- To collect all of my best practices into one system.
- To improve my development workflow.
- To learn something along the way.
A framework is an expression of the values, preferences, priorities, and experience of its creators. While I embrace some existing frameworks (Bootstrap, PureCSS), I want to create something that reflects my values and the work that I do.
This project would not have happened without the benefit of work done by others. Their contributions to front-end development are part of my experience, and so my work reflects theirs. Tyfy has something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue from the following sources:
