Basic styles for HTML Elements. Providing a mostly-reasonable set of styles without classes.

Use it for simple static sites or as a starting point and add your own classes. This is not a complete solution with layout grids, components, utility classes, and the like.


How and why I made this

I used the fantastic HTML Elements Reference on MDN and modified it as needed.

I created Bolt.css because I wanted to

  1. Pay homage to HTML
  2. Have an exercise to learn more of the lesser-known tags/elements
  3. Use it in other projects

How to use

Grab the bolt.css stylesheet and add it manually to your app/site.

Alternatively, drop this right into your <head> to use it via a CDN. <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://unpkg.com/boltcss/bolt.min.css">
