HTML5 Form Design Tools

ToolKits for HTML5 Forms

Bootstrap Framework

Bootstrap is a popular name when we talk about designing web forms.

The major advantage of the bootstrap framework is that you don’t actually have to write the CSS for a form.

You invoke a class in the HTML.


<form class=”form-horizontal” role=”form”>


You don’t need to write CSS codes as it’s automatic.

The technique for styling Bootstrap is boundless. You can put your form labels as per your requirements and the form fields can be squared or rounded.


Foundation Framework

Foundation by Zurb can also be used to design beautiful looking forms. It allows you to design advanced forms using similar techniques to the bootstrap. Although form support in the foundation is not wide and extensive as that of Bootstrap, but there can be several advantages to this. When you are designing small forms, you might not indulge in making choice from the deep library.

The JavaScript support in foundation allows you to implement your own custom form elements. If you want to create your own custom checkbox design, Foundation helps you create it easily as a few classes and a tiny JavaScript snippet.
