Import the css module

@import "system-fonts";

Then process the CSS using the tachyons-cli

$ tachyons-cli path/to/css-file.css > dist/t.css

Using the CSS

The built CSS is located in the css directory. It contains an unminified and minified version. You can either cut and paste that css or link to it directly in your html.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="path/to/module/css/system-fonts">

Development

The source CSS files can be found in the src directory. Running $ npm start will process the source CSS and place the built CSS in the css directory.
