There are 2/3 differents concept in your comment :

  • CSS precompilers, like SASS or LESS, which add scaffolding, variables and mixins
  • mixins libraries that simplifies some tasks like CSS3 vendor prefixes, like Bourbon or Compass
  • frameworks that offer a base structure to your project, a "bootstrap"

Twitter Bootstrap for example uses Less by default, but there are fork that works with Sass.

Blueprint is also available as a Compass module : if you import compass/sass, you get a whole lot of mixin to generate blueprint css that suits your need. You can also make a fluid grid layout with these, just like with Twitter Bootstrap.

I love Sass/Compass, and I am currently trying Twitter Bootstrap on a project.
