A front-end design toolkit built with Sass for developing responsive web apps. Primitive also provides helpful, browser-consistent styling for default HTML elements - buttons, forms, tables, lists, and typography.
CSS quick start (easy)
- Download the stylesheet or use the CDN URL: https://unpkg.com/primitive-ui/dist/css/main.css.
- Save the stylesheet and link to it in the head of your project.
<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://unpkg.com/primitive-ui/dist/css/main.css" />
It's all set to go and your HTML elements will be given sensible default styling.
Sass integration (recommended)
The beauty of Primitive is the ease with which you can create unique designs in a beautiful, simple system.
# Clone the repo git clone https://github.com/taniarascia/primitive.git # Watch for file changes npm run sass:watch # Build a minified production build npm run sass:build
Now you can begin modifying variables in
variables.scss. This file will define your colors, typography, sizes, breakpoints, buttons, borders, and more. Define all your variables here to keep your project organized.
You can view
docs/template.html to see some example elements as you make changes.
If you use would prefer to use Gulp for compiling, the option is available.
- Watch modifications and recompile:
npm run gulp-watch
- Build CSS:
npm run gulp-css
