    Cheat Sheet

    Install via NPM

    npm install @bolt/generic-shared

    Declare Margins In the Same Direction

    All generic block level elements have been set to use margin-bottom for spacing.

    Consistent Indentation for Lists

    Generic ordered list, unordered list, and definition list’s indentation have been reset to be consistent across (medium spacing).

    Getting Started

    The best way to start using Bolt is via the Bolt Starterkit (coming soon), a pre-assembled front-end boilerplate designed to get you up and running as quickly as possible.

    You can also use the full Bolt Core CSS framework on its own, or, install just the parts you need and fold the different ITCSS layers of Bolt into your existing codebase.

    Installing Bolt’s generic shared is as easy as running NPM install:

    npm install @bolt/generic-shared

    TIP:: Don’t have a package.json file? Need a little help getting started? Check out our Getting Started guide for some tips to help get you up to speed.


    Once installed, you should @import the main Sass partial into your project’s main .scss file to make the included variables available to the rest of your code.

    // Settings
    @import ‘@bolt/generic-shared’
    // Tools
    @import ‘@bolt/tools-...’

    Since Bolt's CSS architecture is based on ITCSS (Inverted Triangle CSS)1, what Sass partials you import, and in what order, makes a whole world of difference. That’s why importing any Settings packages from Bolt in your project’s Settings layer (prior to any Sass mixins, resets, base HTML element styles, etc) is so important.


    We recommend using Bolt’s Gulp-based front-end build tools to compile your Sass as we're pre-packaging many of the latest tools and add-ons to help you write your very best: LibSass, Autoprefixer, PostCSS, CleanCSS, Sassdoc, Stylelint, Gulp Plumber, npm-sass, and BrowserSync live reloading.
