Created by Stephanie Eckles, SmolCSS is a collection of modern CSS layouts and components that use just enough CSS to function and look good.

CSS has come a long way over the last few years. Things that used to be complex are now relatively simple. Nothing highlights that better than the Smol document styles:

In 55 smol lines of CSS, we've created a set of reasonable document styles that is just enough to produce a responsive, easily readable document given the use of semantic HTML. Thanks to flexbox, viewport units, and clamp, it's flexible for variable document lengths. The newly supported :is()deserves the most credit in terms of reducing lines of code.”
