All modules in Pure build on top of Normalize.css. It's our foundational layer to maintain some degree of cross-browser consistency. You can pull in Normalize.css by adding this
<link> element on your page:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://firstname.lastname@example.org/build/base-min.css">
A bit about Normalize.css
Normalize.css is a small CSS file that provides better cross-browser consistency in the default styling of HTML elements. It’s a modern, HTML5-ready, alternative to the traditional CSS reset."
In addition to Normalize.css rules, Pure's Base module contains some common styles that are used by most websites.
hidden attribute to an HTML element to hide it from the screen via
display: none !important;. Alternatively, for compatibility with old IE, you may use the CSS classname
<input type="text" name="_csrf" hidden>
.pure-img class name to an
<img> element to make it scale with the viewport. This is handy when building responsive websites.
<img class="pure-img" src="...">
Normalize.css is a great starting place for your project, but some HTML elements such as forms, tables, and menus require more styling than what's provided by Normalize.
We made a more opinionated look and feel for these elements, while keeping them minimal enough so that you can customize them for your site or app's needs. Check out our CSS for Forms, Tables, and Menus.
