siimple is a light, responsive and open source framework for design flat and clean websites. It has been built in SASS/SCSS and provides a clean starting point for your web design.

Getting started

siimple is available on npm, so you can run npm install siimple to install it in your project. It is also available on a CDN, so you can import the compiled CSS files directly on your HTML page.

You can also download a ZIP file with the code of each release, or clone the repository:

git clone https://github.com/siimple/siimple.git

You can include siimple in your HTML files:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="./node_modules/siimple/dist/siimple.min.css">

Or you can import all the styles in your SASS/SCSS files:

@import "siimple/scss/_all.scss";

Or import only the styles that you need:

@import "siimple/scss/elements/_tip.scss";


The documentation website is available at https://docs.siimple.xyz. The source code of the documentation is on this repository on the ./docs folder. Follow the instructions below to build the documentation in your computer.


Follow the steps described in this section if you are going to contribute, extend or modify siimple. Our main branch is develop, which reflects a state with the latest delivered development changes.

Setup environment

Follow these steps:

  1. Download and install Node.js on your computer.
  2. Clone this repository: git clone https://github.com/siimple/siimple.git.
  3. Navigate to the cloned repository folder, and run npm install to download all the dependencies listed in package.json.

We use Make to automatize the building of siimple.

Building siimple

Navigate to the root folder of the siimple module and run the following command:

$ make build

This will generate siimple.css and siimple.min.css on dist folder.

Running documentation locally

The documentation is generated using bundle and Jekyll. Make sure that you have them installed in your computer. Also, you will need bower to download some front end dependencies.

First, you should run the following command to download and configure all dependencies for the documentation:

$ make install

Then, to build the documentation you should run the following command:

$ make docs

This will generate a folder docs/_site with the generated static documentation website.
