hiperCSS framework 1.0

Another CSS library

Back to basics

HiperCSS is a framework or a web components library to build pages and sites with HTML5 and CSS. You can use Hipertextos as a resource in your projects or just to learn in a different way to build the most common web components.


  • 0 javascript needed (but works with jQuery if you want)
  • Get more than less (keep code simple, avoid dependencies)
  • CSS is for style, HTML is for content (scripts are hacks)


  • Focus on content
  • Write semantic HTML
  • Assume device-agnostic developement
  • Get rapid prototyping
  • Stop fighting against presentational classes
  • Avoid preprocessors: no LESS, no SASS
  • Stop to build cloned sites

How to

  • Write simple HTML
  • Know semantic sense of HTML tags
  • Use fluid design
  • Use presentational classes
