If you were the sort of lame-o that still uses third-party libraries (if you are still using jQuery why are you even reading this site?), then I guess you could use Bower, which is some kind of package manager for client-side code. It was made by some guys at Twitter, though, so I can’t use it anyway because I’m boycotting everything they do until they un-ban my ‘fixietoot’ Mac client - the one that forces you to type exactly 140 characters for every tweet.

Neat vs Semantic GS
Yesterday saw the release of Neat, a new responsive grid system. Its aim is to not pollute your beautiful semantic markup with
grid_n type classes but instead to use SASS mixins extended from Bourbon. I approve of the name (although although mine’s an Old Fashioned).
Does Neat offer anything other than a snappier name over The Semantic Grid System? Semantic GS has been available for a while and gives you the holy-war avoiding choice of LESS, SCSS or Stylus flavors. I’ve used Semantic GS on my own portfolio site & been very pleased with how easy & unobtrusive it is.
