CSS Zero

An opinionated CSS starter kit for your Ruby on Rails application. You can think of it like a "no build" Tailwind CSS.

Installation

Add this gem to your project.

bundle add css-zero

Add the base.css file to your application.

bin/rails generate css_zero:install

Add only the components you need. (Optional)

bin/rails generate css_zero:add accordion alert avatar badge breadcrumb button card collapsible dialog input pagination progress prose switch table

Requirements

If you are using Propshaft (recommended) make sure to load all the CSS files in your layout.html.erb.

Click here to see how
<%= stylesheet_link_tag :all, "data-turbo-track": "reload" %>

If you are using Sprockets make sure to load all the CSS files in your application.css.

Click here to see how
/*
*= require _reset
*= require animations
*= require borders
*= require colors
*= require effects
*= require filters
*= require grid
*= require sizes
*= require transform
*= require transition
*= require typography
*= require_tree .
*= require_self
*= require zutilities
*/

Some icons in the examples are not copied to the project. If you are looking for good ones, I recommend Lucide.

Usage

<h1 class="text-xl font-bold mb-4">
  Write most page content using utility classes.
</h1>

<div class="custom-component">
  Create components using CSS variables.
</div>

<div class="card">
  Optionally, copy pre-built components into your application.
</div>
.custom-component {
  background-color: var(--red-500);
  border-radius: var(--rounded);
  block-size: var(--size-4);
}

Check the CSS files in the repository to see the available variables and utility classes.

Components
