Respond is built on Bootstrap 3. This means the sites you create using Respond are built on a proven, powerful framework that is easy to extend and adapt.


No need to learn another proprietary plugin system. Respond's plugins are powered by web components built on the amazing Polymer framework from Google.


The Respond application is powered by AngularJS.  Angular allows Respond to run impossibly fast.
