UIkit is a CSS Framework. Similar to twitters Bootstrap. Is it a good alternative?

I like creating web apps of different types and with different backend technologies. For example, I recently created a project with the Laravel PHP Framework, a MySQL database and an Apache Solr index and search instance.

For another project I wrote the complete backend in Java (Spring Framework).

My favorite part is obviously the backend. I don't really like to do the frontend. Mainly because I don't have that 'design-vision'. Because of  that I was looking for a lightweight CSS framework (except Bootstrap).

During my research I found UIkit, which is open source https://github.com/uikit/uikit and very well documented https://getuikit.com/docs/introduction.

I am using it now for a couple of projects and I'm really happy with it. It also includes an icon set and a JavaScript library. The current version is v3.0.0.

If you are looking for a Bootstrap alternative, this could be a candidate for you.
