Pure is meant to be a starting point for every website or web app. We take care of all the CSS work that every site needs, without making it look cookie-cutter:

Get Started

To get started using Pure, go to the Pure CSS website. The website has extensive documentation and examples to help you start using Pure.

You can include the Pure CSS file in your project by fetching it from Yahoo’s CDN:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://unpkg.com/purecss@1.0.0/build/pure-min.css">

You can also install Pure using Bower, using the following command:

$ bower install --save pure

Or you can install Pure using NPM:

$ npm install purecss

Build From Source

Optionally, you can build Pure from its source on Github. To do this, you’ll need to have Node.js and npm installed. We use Grunt to build Pure.

$ git clone git@github.com:yahoo/pure.git
$ cd pure
$ npm install
$ grunt
