Petricor CSS is an utility library for building web interfaces. It’s build in SASS and provides a full collection of utility classes that helps you work faster and apply css without almost switching between css and html. It's heavily influenced by Tailwind CSS.
Wide collection of tiny utility classes
Detaching properties into tiny functional classes makes your code more reusable, less dependent and portable. Having classes doing too much leads to scalable issues in the middle-long term.
Remove the process of thinking about naming your classes or adopting nomenclatures like BEM. No more abstract class names that need new modifiers to accommodate similar looking components. You’ll know exactly what they’re doing by just looking at them. Your components will be self-descriptive.
As a general rule the majority of classes have a specificity as low as
Specificity wars with
!important won’t bother you anymore. There are
some fewer exceptions where it does make sense to take advantage of the cascade.
For those specific cases the specificity will increase up to
Made to be customized
All these utilities are generated from a single source of truth. A config file with sass maps containing presets for spacings, colors, typography, box-shadows, transforms, etc.
CSS authors can extend, modify, enable or disable utilities and variants. Customizing Petricor CSS is really easy and you can do so without modifying the core library. This way you can update to new versions without loosing your setup.
