Create complex layouts with ez-css, a light, easy to use, CSS framework.

branch: master

Removed the "." from the clearfix rule

The "." creates content which prevents collapsing margin. Something most users would not expect.

Create complex layouts with ez-css; a light, easy to use, CSS framework.


  • This screencast shows how things work (warning: the audio auto-play)





  • ez-css has a very small footprint (only 915 bytes for the version that uses the "_property" hack) for a fast download time
  • ez-css facilitates deep nesting (because it does not use descendant selectors)
  • ez-css allows you create multiple columns of any width, with or without a gutter
  • ez-css lets you apply any width you want to containers and gutters
  • ez-css is framework agnostic (it integrates well with any other style sheet)
  • ez-css prevents rounding issues and rounding errors
  • ez-css creates self-clearing containers (every box will contain floats)
  • ez-css prevents collapsing margin across all containers



From scratch:

1- Get the style sheet:

2- Insert the style sheet or rules in your document's <head>:

<link rel="stylesheet"  media="screen,projection" href="/css/ez-min.css">


 * all rules from ez-min.css go below

3- Include the markup to create the layout you need:

4- Edit the class name of the main wrapper and set the width of your columns

5- Read these pages for more info:

Using a template:

1- Choose the layout of your choice:

2- Save the HTML file locally (it contains the styles sheet)

3- Insert your content and customize the page further
