Alignment

Alignment utilities allow for quick repositioning of elements.

Text Alignment

Left

<p class="u-text-align--left">Left</p>

Center

<p class="u-text-align--center">Center</p>

Right

<p class="u-text-align--right">Right</p>

Justify

<p class="u-text-align--justify">Justify</p>

In addition, class suffixes (@xsmall, @small, @medium, @large, @xlarge, @super) can be used to change alignment based on viewport width.

This sentence will change aligment based on window size.

<p class="u-text-align--left@small  u-text-align--center@medium  u-text-align--right@large">This sentence will change aligment based on window size.</p>

Floats

u-float--left, u-float--center, and u-float--right classes can be used to float items. Keep in mind there is no such thing as floating something to the center, that class simply sets the left and right margin to auto.

<img class="u-float--left" src="https://placehold.it/40x40" alt="" />
<img class="u-float--right" src="https://placehold.it/40x40" alt="" />
<img class="u-float--center" src="https://placehold.it/40x40" alt="" />

In addition, class suffixes (@xsmall, @small, @medium, @large, @xlarge, @super) can be used to change floats based on viewport width.

Change browser size to see where the image goes.

<p><img class="u-float--left@small  u-float--center@medium  u-float--right@large" src="https://placehold.it/40x40" alt="" />Change browser size to see where the image goes.</p>

Center Image

<img class="u-img--center" src="https://placehold.it/40x40" alt="" />

Content Blocks

Note: The outer element needs some height if you want it to be centered vertically.

Centered
<div class="u-center-block" style="border: 1px solid black; height: 200px;">
    <div class="u-center-block__content">
        Centered
    </div>
</div>
Centered Vertically
<div class="u-center-block" style="border: 1px solid black; height: 200px;">
    <div class="u-center-block__content  u-center-block__content--vertical">
        Centered Vertically
    </div>
</div>
Centered Horizontally
<div class="u-center-block" style="border: 1px solid black; height: 200px;">
    <div class="u-center-block__content  u-center-block__content--horizontal">
        Centered Horizontally
    </div>
</div>

Borders

Add a border to an element on any given side, all sides, or remove borders.

remove all borders

<p class="u-border-none">remove all borders</p>

border top

<p class="u-border-top">border top</p>

border right

<p class="u-border-right">border right</p>

border bottom

<p class="u-border-bottom">border bottom</p>

border left

<p class="u-border-all  u-border--grey">light grey borders</p>

brand borders

<p class="u-border-all  u-border--brand">brand borders</p>

Media Queries

Class suffixes (@xsmall, @small, @medium, @large, @xlarge, @super) can be used to change borders based on viewport width.

<p class="u-border-top  u-border-right@small  u-border-bottom@medium  u-border-left@large">Borders will be added to this paragraph as the viewport width increases.</p>

Clearfix

Easily clear floats by adding .u-clearfix to the parent element.

Clearfix stops the outer element from collapsing even though this paragraph is floated to the left

<div class="u-clearfix" style="border:1px solid black">
    <p class="u-float--left">Clearfix stops the outer element from collapsing even though this paragraph is floated to the left</p>
</div>

Display

Display classes are basic overrides for the CSS display property. These should be used sparingly.

Note: These examples don't show much.

u-block

<p class="u-block">u-block</p>

u-inline

<p class="u-inline">u-inline</p>

u-inline-block

<p class="u-inline-block">u-inline-block</p>

u-flex

<p class="u-flex">u-flex</p>

Elevation

Elevation utilities add drop shadows to elements.

<input class="a-field  u-high" />
<input class="a-field  u-higher" />
<input class="a-field  u-highest" />
<input class="a-field  u-low" />
<input class="a-field  u-lower" />
<input class="a-field  u-lowest" />

Flexbox

An assortment of utility classes.

Line Heights

Override the default line-height value with u-line-height--solid, u-line-height--title, and u-line-height--copy classes.

This sentence has a line-height of 1. This is the smallest value. When text wraps there will be very little space between lines.

<p class="u-line-height--solid">This sentence has a line-height of 1. This is the smallest value. When text wraps there will be very little space between lines.</p>

This sentence has a line-height of 1.25. This is the typically used for large text like headings. When text wraps there will be a bit of space between lines.

<p class="u-line-height--title">This sentence has a line-height of 1.25. This is the typically used for large text like headings. When text wraps there will be a bit of space between lines.</p>

This sentence has a line-height of 1.5. This is the typically used for body copy. When text wraps there will be enough space between lines to read long lines comfortably.

<p class="u-line-height--copy">This sentence has a line-height of 1.5. This is the typically used for body copy. When text wraps there will be enough space between lines to read long lines comfortably.</p>

Media Queries

Class suffixes (@xsmall, @small, @medium, @large, @xlarge, @super) can be used to change line-heights based on viewport width.

Order

Elements can be reordered if their parent is a flex container, such as a grid. There are three ordering options, u-order-first, u-order-last, and u-order-unordered which simply returns the order to the default value of 0.

first
second
third
<div class="l-grid  sg-grid">
    <div class="l-grid__item  u-order-last">first</div>
    <div class="l-grid__item">second</div>
    <div class="l-grid__item  u-order-first">third</div>
</div>

    <div class="l-grid__item">second</div>
    <div class="l-grid__item">third</div>
</div>

Over

Over utility classes are an easy way to change an item's z-index. Classes from lowest to highest are u-over-content, u-over-control, u-over-page, u-over-screen, and u-over-everything. The item must have a position set for these classes to work.

<div style="position: relative;">
    <div class="u-over-content  u-bg-red" style="height: 50px; position: absolute; width: 25%;"></div>
    <div class="u-over-control  u-bg-green" style="height: 50px; left: 20%; position: absolute; top: 40px; width: 25%;"></div>
    <div class="u-over-page  u-bg-blue" style="height: 50px; left: 40%; position: absolute; top: 80px; width: 25%;"></div>
    <div class="u-over-screen  u-bg-yellow" style="height: 50px; left: 60%; position: absolute; top: 120px; width: 25%;"></div>
    <div class="u-over-everything  u-bg-purple" style="height: 50px;  position: absolute; right: 0; top: 160px; width: 25%;"></div>
</div>

Media Queries

Class suffixes (@xsmall, @small, @medium, @large, @xlarge, @super) can be used to change z-index at specific breakpoints and above.

Ratios

Ratio classes can be used to create boxes that will retain their aspect ratio even if their width is constrained. These can be used to insert Kaltura videos and playlists with various configurations.

u-ratio--16x9 is the ratio commonly used for single videos.

u-ratio--2x1 is the ratio commonly used for horizontal video playlists.
