I am developing a liking for things minimal especially when it comes to choosing development frameworks. I think the lack of bloat appeals to many. Keeping things simple makes it easier to manage a code base. For example this site is built on AnchorCMS and the Kraken CSS Framework. The advantage is that I can easily tweak the CMS framework to my liking as well as customize the CSS to my taste, all this less than a 400kb, awesome yes?
For those willing to check out some other minimalistic frameworks one neiesc has compiled a list of minimalist frameworks, check it on GitHub.
UPDATE Revamped the sites' style and removed the Kraken framework css theme and replaced it with 4kb theme :)
