Meshki is a simple, black-colored, responsive boilerplate to kickstart any responsive project.

It is only ~20 KiB (minified) and ~30 KiB (normal), including both Scss/CSS and JS files.

Check out https://borderliner.github.io/Meshki/ for samples and details.

Getting Started

There are a couple ways to download Meshki:

  • Download the zip or the tar.gz
  • Clone the repo: git clone https://github.com/Borderliner/Meshki.git (Note: this is under active development, so if you're looking for stable and safe, use the zipped download)
  • Use Bower: bower install meshki (Recommended)
  • Use npm: npm install meshki

How to Compile

You need node.js to minify the source Scss and JavaScript files and produce outputs. Head over to nodejs.org and download a version for your system, or download it from your package manager.

Clone the repo:

git clone https://github.com/Borderliner/Meshki.git && cd Meshki

npm

Install all the dependencies with npm:

npm install

The file build.js contains the scripts you need to compile Meshki. There are a couple of commands you can use via npm run so that you don't have to use build.js directly.

To compile Meshki:

npm run compile

To compile and watch for file changes:

npm run watch

Sometimes when you upgrade your NodeJS, node-sass needs to be recompiled for the new version. To do so, issue the following command:

npm run rebuild-sass

Yarn

Install all the dependencies with yarn:

yarn

The file build.js contains the scripts you need to compile Meshki. There are a couple of commands you can use via yarn run so that you don't have to use build.js directly.

To compile Meshki:

yarn run compile

To compile and watch for file changes:

yarn run watch

Sometimes when you upgrade your NodeJS, node-sass needs to be recompiled for the new version. To do so, issue the following command:

yarn run rebuild-sass

Why Meshki is Awesome

Meshki is lightweight, stylish and simple. It styles only raw HTML elements (with a few exceptions) and provides a responsive grid with a minimal and clean interface.

  • Around 1.3k lines of unminified CSS, with comments
  • Linter configurations available for geeks
  • Although it's not a UI framework, you can create most of the interface with just using Meshki
  • No compilation or installation needed. Just 2 files of CSS + JS
  • Can be installed via bower, npm and yarn
  • Available through CloudFlare and jsDelivr CDNs
  • Clean code, clean interface, without any headaches
  • Dependency-free! You don't need jQuery to run Meshki. All pure JavaScript

Browser Support

  • Chrome & Chromium (latest) Well-Tested
  • Mozilla Firefox (latest) Well-Tested
  • Microsoft Edge (latest)
  • Opera (latest)
  • Safari (latest) Well-Tested
  • IE 9+ (No animations on IE 9. Do not open issues regarding IE 8 and below) Change Your Browser, Please!

The above list is non-exhaustive. Meshki works perfectly with almost all older versions of the browsers above, though IE certainly has large degradation prior to IE 9.
