With the intention of having a CSS core of several projects in one place. It was created this project to serve as the basis of a front-end project. Using the methodology of ITCSS and syntax SCSS, STYLUS and LESS.

The idea of using the core is when you need more than one project in the same domain. Say in your domain , you need to have the files for site and admin area. Thus, the structure with the core would look like the example below:

 > prime
 > admin
  > style.scss 
 > site
  > style.scss 

With this, in the prime were the tools that will be used in both projects (icons, mixins, functions and more).


The project comes with usage tips with GulpJS or GruntJS. Choosing a automizador tasks, just knowing that only need to be aware in 3 places:

  • At the root, Gruntfile.js or Gulpfile.js.
  • In folder tasks, where tasks are divided by automator.
  • In the file package.json, where are the dependencies.

Only interests the files , they are in the folder source. Opting to use one of the suggested Automation , just stay tuned to the three places that were mentioned above and run in the terminal:

$ npm install prime-itcss

Or add this package to your package.json file:

"dependencies": {
    "prime-itcss": "1.1.3"

And with the dependencies installed , the command default the automator.


In each project folder, it is not necessary to have some folders (00-settings, 01-tools, 03-generic, 03-base, 04-vendor e 09-trumps), but this is not a rule, you will know the best for your project.

When writing , I am considering that the sample projects (site, admin), they are different and to have this distinction, folders (05-objetcs, 06-components, 07-pages e 08-theme), will be customized for each project.

Recalling once again, the intention is to show the concept that one must have a prime, to avoid repeated code and making it difficult to maintain. The organization of folders in the projects , is at the discretion of the need of the same.

style.scss (site)

@import "../prime/00-settings/_variables";
@import "../prime/01-tools/_mixins";

@import "05-objects/_alerts";
