bulma-helpers

Library with missing Functional / Atomic CSS classes for Bulma framework, which doesn't require Bulma framework to work! ❤️

npm

No installation (CDN)

You can use Bulma Helpers without installation directly from cdnjs. Just import file bulma-helpers.min.css:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/bulma-helpers/0.4.0/css/bulma-helpers.min.css" integrity="sha512-U6ELnUi7oqVEjkLmFw5r5UR5LEtvpImS/jUykBKneVhD0lxZxfJZ3k3pe003ktrtNZYungd9u3Urp2X09wKwXg==" crossorigin="anonymous" />

Link to library on cdnjs:

https://cdnjs.com/libraries/bulma-helpers

Quick install

Installation is nearly the same as pure Bulma framework.

NPM

npm install bulma-helpers

or

Yarn

yarn add bulma-helpers

Import

After installation, you can import the CSS file into your project using this snippet:

import 'bulma-helpers/css/bulma-helpers.min.css'

Compatibility with Bulma

Bulma-helpers library complies with Bulma convention of naming classes. Most of classes are of the is-* and has-* type. Example:

.is-borderless

or

.has-padding-top-5

One exception are pure Flexbox classes, which names just reflect modifiers. Example:

.flex-row

or

.align-center

Compatibility with other CSS frameworks

You can use Bulma-helpers with any other CSS framework or even as a standalone library, if you want to write Functional / Atomic CSS code. Keep in mind that Bulma-helpers library bases on Sass, so you will need basic knowledge of Sass to customize the library.

CSS only

Bulma-helpers, equally to Bulma, is a CSS library. As such, the sole output is a single CSS file: bulma-helpers.css

You can either use that file, "out of the box", or download the Sass source files to customize the variables or choose which modules do you want to use.

There is no JavaScript included.

Browser Support

Bulma-helpers, equally to Bulma, uses autoprefixer to make (most) Flexbox features compatible with earlier browser versions. According to Can I use, Bulma is compatible with recent versions of:

  • Chrome
  • Edge
  • Firefox
  • Opera
  • Safari

Internet Explorer (10+) is only partially supported.

Customization

All modules are toggled on and all variables have some values by default. You can customize these values by assigning your values to variables, defined in the library. All available variables you can find in corresponding files in variables directory. Toggling off media queries (variables for this you can find in sass/helpers/variables/media-queries.sass, for example $enable-flex-media-queries) will decrease size of the library dramatically.

Instruction

  1. Make sure you have node-sass installed. If not, install it. (npm install node-sass --save-dev)
  2. Create script for compiliting SCSS to CSS, i.e. "customize-css": "node-sass --omit-source-map-url ./src/scss/bulma-helpers-customization.scss ./src/css/bulma-helpers-customization.css". Add this script to scripts section in package.json. As you can see in script, our file in which we will customize bulma-helpers is called bulma-helpers-customization.scss. The result CSS output will be in bulma-helpers-customization.css (notice the different extension of file).
  3. Create SCSS file in which you will customize bulma-helpers variables (i.e. scss/bulma-helpers-customization.scss)
  4. Define variables which you want to override, before importing bulma-helpers in created file.

Example content of file with customization:

@charset "utf-8";
$sizing-range-start: 1;
$sizing-range-end: 666;
$sizing-interval: 6;
@import "../../node_modules/bulma-helpers/bulma-helpers.sass";
  1. Run compiling script to build new css file, i.e. npm run customize-css
  2. Import result file (in this example - bulma-helpers-customization.css) in your scss file, i.e. @import "css/bulma-helpers-customization.css";

Customizing unit

Default unit in code and in this README is px, but you can change it to any unit, for example em or rem. Change will be global for all helpers.

$default-unit: 'px' !default

Customizing ranges of generated classes

For all generated classes (such as has-margin-bottom-*, where * is value from given range) there is a simple way to change range and interval of generated classes. You can change the following variables in corresponding sass files. All variables follow the same pattern, shown below.

$sizing-range-start: 50 !default
$sizing-range-end: 400 !default
$sizing-interval: 50 !default

We've got name of customized value, such as sizing or spacing, then variable's meaning, such as range-start, range-end and interval.

For media queries, the rule is the same. The only difference is that rest of variable's name is preceded by mq.

$mq-sizing-range-start: 50 !default
$mq-sizing-range-end: 400 !default
$mq-sizing-interval: 50 !default

Customizing media queries

You can decide whether you want to include media queries in your project or not. In variables/media-queries.sass file you can find variables which allows you to customize your Bulma-helpers. All of defined variables are built on top of the following pattern:

$enable-media-queries: true !default

This variables enables/disables all media queries in the project.

For choosing certain modules, such as max/min width/height sizing media queries, you can assign a value to variables such as:

$enable-sizing-max-min-width-height-media-queries: true !default

Customizing breakpoints

Breakpoints are same as default breakpoints in Bulma. If you want to change them, then just override the same breakpoint variables as in Bulma, for example:

$tablet: 800px

Customizing spacing units

Units for the spacing and media query spacing helpers are using pixels by default. If you want to generate classes for additional units (such as rem or em), override the list of unit variables, which allows for a single unit or list of units. For example:

$additional-spacing-units: 'rem' 'em'

Generated spacing and media query classes for the above configuration will result in new spacing classes appended with -rem or -em. For example, has-margin-5-rem and has-margin-5-em.

Choosing modules

By default, all modules are included in result build. Even so, you can decide on your own which modules do you want to use in your project. To achieve this, you have to remove unwanted sass modules imports from main _all.sass files in helpers directory or remove single file imports from _all.sass in corresponding modules directories.
