Pure is a set of small, responsive open source CSS modules from Yahoo! that can be used in web projects.

The entire set of modules takes up less than 5KB when compressed. The tiny CSS file size is a boon for mobile users with slow connections.

The tiny footprint still includes responsive styles, design, and ease of use. All modules in Pure build on top of Normalize.css, an HTML5-ready alternative to CSS resets. It is the foundational layer to maintain some degree of cross-browser consistency.

Pure is broken up into a set of responsive modules. Pure CSS does not use any JavaScript plugins except for the drop-down effect.

 Pure 0.6.0
