the less formal CSS framework



PaperCSS was originally made by @rhyneav to be something different than the typical mODerN STylEs and clean pages found in every other CSS framework. It was built with LESS and deployed on a single index.html page before being open sourced. It has since evolved; The CSS source has been rewritten in SCSS and the documentation is now built with Hugo (all thanks to some wonderful contributors). In addition to the original creator, it is maintained by @Fraham and @TotomInc.

The goal of PaperCSS is to be as minimal as possible when adding classes. For example, a button should just look like a paper button. There shouldn’t be a need to add a class such as paper-button. Because of this, adding PaperCSS to a markdown generated page should instantly paper-ize it.

Feel free to use it for wireframes, webapps, blogs, or whatever else you can think of! It is licensed under the ISC License, so use it wherever you want to.

If you are new to Git or SCSS, this would be a great project to get your feet wet with. I’d be happy to help walk you through the pull request process. Check out the Git repo for more info!
