Layers CSS has been migrated both to git and to GitHub in February 2015. Future development and new releases will be done there as of version 1.1.2.

Layers CSS 1.1.2

A minimum-interference collection of common-sense default styles.

Get started using Layers

To get it all, use the single-file compilation:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="release/layers.css">

You can also pick and choose what you want (in alphabetical order):

<link rel="stylesheet" href="source/layers/_normalize.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="source/layers/forms.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="source/layers/grid.css">

If you use an autoloader (e.g. asset pipeline in Rails), you can just include the whole directory.

Responsive adjustments

All responsive adjustments are included in separate from the main release:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="release/responsive.css">

Individual files are also available under source/. Feel free to edit the breaking points and add more complex degradation behavior, this is just a start.


None of the other files contain any color scheme declarations. If you want to just get a usable page out, fast, you can add one of the separate color schemes from extras:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="extras/light.css">
