Bamboo CSS

A classless CSS library which adds nice default style for all HTML elements. It saves you a lot of time when you need to style HTML for your HTML/React/Vue demo on CodePen/CodeSandbox. It can also be used as a base style for your blog/website.

Bamboo CSS uses modern-normalize and sanitize.css to ensure consistent styling across browsers (no IE support). When using Bamboo CSS, you don't need to include normalize.css or sanitize.css anymore.

Bamboo CSS uses CSS variables for theming, allowing to dynamically change the theme if you want. By default, it provides 2 themes for light and dark modes. The theme is automatically switched based on the system mode.

All CSS variables are prefixed with --b-, allowing to use Bamboo CSS with any CSS framework without conflicts.

Bamboo CSS is very lightweight, only 5.3KB (unzipped) and 1.9KB (gzipped).

Theming

Bamboo CSS provides the following CSS variables for theming:

:root {
	--b-font-main: system-ui, sans-serif;
	--b-font-mono: ui-monospace, SFMono-Regular, Menlo, Monaco, Consolas, "Liberation Mono", "Courier New", monospace;

	--b-txt: #2e3440;
	--b-bg-1: #fff;
	--b-bg-2: #eceff4;
	--b-line: #eceff4;
	--b-link: #bf616a;
	--b-btn-bg: #242933;

}

All CSS variables are prefixed with --b- so it's safe to use Bamboo CSS with your existing websites.
