Nibble is a CSS framework built on top of nib and strongly influenced by foundation.

It provides a grid system and basic elements like buttons and menu items.

It's like nibbling on a flying spaghetti monster's tentakle.

Lots (maybe all) of the credit goes to foundation. I have taken many ideas and lots of CSS code from their lib. I'm just not that big of a SCSS fan...


$ npm install nibble

Make sure you also install nib.

This is an example how you would include nib and nibble in your framework:

var connect = require('connect')
  , stylus = require('stylus')
  , nib = require('nib')
  , nibble = require('nibble');

var server = connect();

function compile(str, path) {
  return stylus(str)
    .set('filename', path)
    .set('compress', true)

    src: __dirname
  , compile: compile


To include all of nibble's elements you write this in your .styl file:

@import "nibble"

This includes nib and all of nibble's functionality.

You can also cherrypick the components you want instead of importing the whole lib. In this case, make sure that you include the setup.styl file

@import "nibble/setup"

which includes the settings, functions and mixins needed by nearly all components.

I'll add more documentation soon. Please refer to the nibble folder for now on which elements exist.
