sakura: a minimal classless css framework / theme.
[Go to Github repository]
The perfect blossom is a rare thing. You could spend your life looking for one, and it would not be a wasted life
Just drop in
sakura.css to any webpage and go from
ugly looking 1900's website to a pretty modern website
in literally 0 seconds.
Easy to customize and build on top of sakura.
Sakura supports extremely easy theming support using
variables for duotone color scheming. Comes with several
existing themes, can be found in the
css folder of this
Compare a live page WITH and WITHOUT sakura.
Also my blog is a nice place to check sakura in action with heavy text (it has a change theme button on the top as well):
Don't want to develop using sakura, but instead want to use it on websites with outdated 90's design (i.e. no css)?
If so, enable sakura on any website using the following instructions:

How exactly does sakura help you? I had a discussion about this on the reddit thread
- Just drop in, even on existing HTML content, to get a pretty looking website (everything "just works")
- Quick prototyping, especially when working on backend sites and can't yet be bothered to fidget with css/html
- Building a quick (but pretty) site/blog for your best friend or aunt!
- No need to remember tons of different class names for every other css framework
- Works amazingly with markdown generated HTML pages (eliminates
the need of hacks like including
.img img-responsivein markdown-parser generated
- Wonderful for people not really good or interested with design as sakura is nothing but a set of reasonable defaults
Download the file:
OR download directly: sakura.css
Link it from html:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="sakura.css" type="text/css">
Simply add this in your
<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://unpkg.com/sakura.css/css/sakura.css" type="text/css">
Install from npm:
npm install sakura.css
Install from Yarn:
yarn add sakura.css
(Optional) but recommended to use normalize.css to reset before using sakura.
Sites using Sakura
If you're using sakura, please let me know or make a pull
request adding in your name. I would be super happy!!
You can make your own themes by overriding some variables for colors.
Here is an example file:
/* Duotone color scheming: Uses blossom as the revealing/stark color Uses fade as the more prominent color */ $color-blossom: #338618; $color-fade: #5e5e5e; /* bg color is used for the background of the page bg-alt is used for code-blocks etc */ $color-bg: #f9f9f9; $color-bg-alt: #C7E3BE; /* color of all the text on the page */ $color-text: #4a4a4a; $font-size-base: 1.8rem; @import "main";
Please have a look at the instructions.
