This repository is a module of the full primer repository.


The typography for our marketing pages differs slightly from what is in Primer's core--it is responsive, on a slightly different scale, and headlines are in a different font (Roboto).

Heading Utilities

Use .alt-h1.alt-h6 to change an element's font, size, and weight on marketing pages.

<p class="alt-h1">Pizza 1</p>
<p class="alt-h2">Pizza 2</p>
<p class="alt-h3">Pizza 3</p>
<p class="alt-h4">Pizza 4</p>
<p class="alt-h5">Pizza 5</p>
<p class="alt-h6">Pizza 6</p>

Typographic Utilities

These utilities are meant to be used in addition to Primer's core utilities.

<p class="alt-lead text-gray">I'm a lead paragraph. Bacon ipsum dolor amet tri-tip chicken kielbasa, cow swine beef corned beef ground round prosciutto hamburger porchetta sausage alcatra tail.</p>
<p class="text-gray">I'm a regular paragraph, except I'm gray. Bacon ipsum dolor amet tri-tip chicken kielbasa, cow swine beef corned beef ground round prosciutto hamburger porchetta sausage alcatra tail.</p>
<p class="text-gray alt-text-small">And I'm a tiny lil' baby paragraph. Bacon ipsum dolor amet tri-tip chicken kielbasa, cow swine beef corned beef ground round prosciutto hamburger porchetta sausage alcatra tail.</p>
<p class="alt-mono-font text-gray">Occasionally we want to use a mono font, there is a utility class for that.</p>
<p class="pullquote">I'm a pullquote. Someone said these words in real life, and now they're on the internet</p>
