Was this written from scratch?
This library combines the following:
- reset.css 2.0 by Eric Meyer
- normalize.css 8.0.0 by Nicolas Gallagher and Jonathan Neal
- The Bootstrap 4 Reboot CSS
This library adds standardizations onto the above
What is css-baseline?
Browers come with different default CSS styles, this library tries to provide a common style starting point so that html appears and behaves the same in all browsers. It is especially geared towards fixing edge-case bugs/behaviors (cough cough IE 9,10,11 cough cough). There are no CSS-classes since it this is intended to be used with other style sheets / CSS frameworks.
The goal is that CSS baseline can be used as a foundation for all future web-dev projects regardless of anyone's project-specific styling needs.
How do I use this?
Make sure you include this CSS before any other style sheets: this lets other libraries override css-baseline
[quick way] If you're just testing you can paste this in the <head> of your HTML file.
<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://unpkg.com/css-baseline/css/2.css">
[better way] You can also manually download the CSS file of version you want (see the
cssfolder). Then just include it as the first style sheet in the <head> of your HTML file.
[best way] If you have a bundler in your project (e.g. Parcel.js, Webpack, Rollup.js) you can include this through npm.
import "css-baseline/css/2". Your bundler may have some other way of including CSS files from NPM.
Why are their 4 versions?
- Only include critical fixes
- Standardize the spacing of elements (and everything from #1)
- Standardize font sizing (and everything from #1 and #2)
- Standardize the look of buttons and text-input fields (and everything from #1, #2, and #3)
Is this going to be updated?
Yes. Please create pull requests if any browsers have non-standard behavior/bugs that can be fixed with CSS or if there is any conflict with major libraries.
