sanitize.css sanitize

sanitize.css is a CSS library that provides consistent, cross-browser default styling of HTML elements alongside useful defaults.

It is developed alongside normalize.css, which means every normalization is included, and every normalization and opinion are clearly marked and documented.

Usage

<link href="https://unpkg.com/sanitize.css" rel="stylesheet" />

A separate stylesheet normalizes typography using system interface fonts.

<link href="https://unpkg.com/sanitize.css/typography.css" rel="stylesheet" />

A separate stylesheet normalizes forms using minimal, standards-like styling.

<link href="https://unpkg.com/sanitize.css/forms.css" rel="stylesheet" />

Install

npm install --save sanitize.css

Webpack Usage

Import sanitize.css in CSS:

@import 'sanitize.css';
@import 'sanitize.css/typography.css';
@import 'sanitize.css/forms.css';

Alternatively, import sanitize.css in JS:

import 'sanitize.css';
import 'sanitize.css/typography.css';
import 'sanitize.css/forms.css';

In webpack.config.js, be sure to use the appropriate loaders:

module.exports = {
  module: {
    rules: [
      {
        test: /\.css$/,
        use: [ 'style-loader', 'css-loader' ]
      }
    ]
  }
}

What does it do?

  • Normalizes styles for a wide range of elements.
  • Corrects bugs and common browser inconsistencies.
  • Provides common, useful defaults.
  • Explains what code does using detailed comments.

*, ::before, ::after {
  box-sizing: border-box;

*, ::before, ::after {
  background-repeat: no-repeat;
}
Pseudo-elements inherit text decoration and vertical alignment

}
Cursors only change to hint non-obvious interfaces

  cursor: default;
}
Text has a comfortable line height in all browsers
html {
  line-height: 1.5;
}
Tabs appear the same on the web as in a typical editor
html {
  tab-size: 4;
}
Words break to prevent overflow
html {
  word-break: break-all;
}
Documents do not use a margin for outer padding
body {
  margin: 0;
}
Navigation lists do not include a marker style
nav ol, nav ul {
  list-style: none;
  padding: 0;
}
Media elements align to the text center of other content

Typography Features

The default font is the system ui font
html {
  font-family:
    system-ui,
    /* macOS 10.11-10.12 */ -apple-system,
    /* Windows 6+ */ Segoe UI,
    /* Android 4+ */ Roboto,
    /* Ubuntu 10.10+ */ Ubuntu,
    /* Gnome 3+ */ Cantarell,
    /* KDE Plasma 5+ */ Noto Sans,
    /* fallback */ sans-serif,
    /* macOS emoji */ "Apple Color Emoji",
    /* Windows emoji */ "Segoe UI Emoji",
    /* Windows emoji */ "Segoe UI Symbol",
    /* Linux emoji */ "Noto Color Emoji";
}
Pre-formatted and code-formatted text uses the monospace system ui font
code, kbd, pre, samp {
  font-family:
    /* macOS 10.10+ */ Menlo,
    /* Windows 6+ */ Consolas,
    /* Android 4+ */ Roboto Mono,
    /* Ubuntu 10.10+ */ Ubuntu Monospace,
    /* KDE Plasma 5+ */ Noto Mono,
    /* KDE Plasma 4+ */ Oxygen Mono,
    /* Linux/OpenOffice fallback */ Liberation Mono,
    /* fallback */ monospace;
}

normalize.css and sanitize.css correct browser bugs while carefully testing and documenting changes. normalize.css styles adhere to css specifications. sanitize.css styles adhere to common developer expectations and preferences. reset.css unstyles all elements.
