Every now and then a new minimalist CSS framework comes along for those looking to implement a framework for structure without carrying the weight of Bootstrap or Material. Milligram is one of these frameworks. At just 8.8KB for the minified style, Milligram offers a consistent look and feel for:

  • Typography
  • Blockquotes
  • Buttons
  • Lists
  • Forms
  • Tables
  • Grids
  • Code
  • … and more!

There’s several utility classes that are used most frequently with other frameworks that Milligram also includes such as .clearfix, .float-left, and .float-right. Milligram also offers a mobile first design strategy. The default font used is Roboto, which is available as a Google font.
