40+ Best Web UI Interface Framework Kits

In web design today there are so many things to remember, that it is really nearly impossible to build it all from scratch every single time on every single project, this is where frameworks and kits come in. You really need a framework for things, especially for UI on the web. Whether you use these types of frameworks as is, or just use them as a base for your own creations, or even just use them for inspiration – they save you a ton of time and increase the quality of any project instantly. Even though it is such a crucial part of any web design, some people may not understand really what a “user interface” is – just so everyone is on the same page, lets take a closer look.

What is a Web User Interface?

User interface on the web is really easily summarized as “Making websites friendly” in a way that is easy to understand and use, but lets look at a more official definition.

Generally, the goal of human-machine interaction engineering is to produce a user interface which makes it easy, efficient, and enjoyable to operate a machine in the way which produces the desired result. This generally means that the operator needs to provide minimal input to achieve the desired output, and also that the machine minimizes undesired outputs to the human.

With the increased use of personal computers and the relative decline in societal awareness of heavy machinery, the term user interface is generally assumed to mean the graphical user interface, while industrial control panel and machinery control design discussions more commonly refer to human-machine interfaces.

Web User Interfaces (WUI) is the type of UI that accepts input and provide output by generating web pages which are transmitted via the Internet and viewed by the user using a web browser program. Newer implementations utilize Java, AJAX, Adobe Flex, Microsoft .NET, or similar technologies to provide real-time control in a separate program, eliminating the need to refresh a traditional HTML based web browser. Administrative web interfaces for web-servers, servers and networked computers are often called control panels.

So whether you just design the web pages, or build them (or both!) it is really good to get familiar with web UI trends – and it is really helpful to get familiar with a few Web UI Frameworks! If you are a designer, perhaps stick with the PSD downloads of the web user interface files – If you are a developer, I would dive straight into the jQuery UI (which is all javascript/css with jQuery of course) or one of Pure CSS Interface framework kits. Today we are showcasing some of the best of all of these worlds (there are even free ones and premium ones listed) so whatever you are working on, I am pretty sure you could use at least a couple of these in one of your projects in the near future. So get inspired, get productive, and Enjoy!
