Table of contents


There are 4 ways to get started with Pico CSS:

Install manually

Download Pico and link /css/pico.min.css in the <head> of your website.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/pico.min.css">

Install from CDN

Alternatively, you can use jsDelivr CDN to link pico.css.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/@picocss/pico@1/css/pico.min.css">

Install with NPM

npm install @picocss/pico

Install with Composer

composer require picocss/pico

Class-less version

Pico provides a .classless version (example).

In this version, header, main and footer act as containers.

Use the default .classless version if you need centered viewports:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/@picocss/pico@1/css/pico.classless.min.css">

Or use the .fluid.classless version if you need a fluid container:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/@picocss/pico@1/css/pico.fluid.classless.min.css">

Then just write pure HTML, and it should look great:

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/@picocss/pico@1/css/pico.classless.min.css">
    <title>Hello, world!</title>
      <h1>Hello, world!</h1>

  • Classless
    A pure semantic HTML markup, without .classes.

  • Basic template
    A basic custom template for Pico using only CSS custom properties (variables).

  • Company
    A classic company or blog layout with a sidebar.

  • Google Amp
    A simple layout for Google Amp, with inlined CSS.

  • Sign in
    A minimalist layout for Login pages.

  • Pico + Bootstrap grid system
    Custom CSS build with the Bootstrap grid system to manage complex grid layouts in Pico.

All examples are open-sourced in picocss/examples.


Pico can be used without custom CSS for quick or small projects. However, it’s designed as a starting point, like a “reset CSS on steroids”. As Pico does not integrate any helpers or utilities .classes, this minimal CSS framework requires SCSS or CSS knowledge to build large projects.
