Get started

To start using purple3, just copy the following into the the head of your site or app;

<link rel="stylesheet" href="">

Now we can write our first UI! purple3 uses atomic methods which means we apply lots of single-use classes to our HTML to build up our interfaces. Because the atomic classes can be combined, we don't have to write as much CSS as we used to.

Take a look at the docs for all the classes you can use.
