How to use Pure CSS in webpage?

We can add Pure CSS to our webpage in two ways:

  • Using NPM Install
  • Using CDN Link

1. Using NPM Install: You can add Pure CSS to your project through npm. This is our recommended way to integrate Pure CSS into your project’s build process and toolchain.

$ npm install purecss --save

2. Using CDN Link: You can add Pure CSS to your page via the free unpkg CDN link. Just add the following <link> element into your page’s <head>, before your project’s style sheets.

<link rel=”stylesheet” href=”” integrity=”sha384-LTIDeidl25h2dPxrB2Ekgc9c7sEC3CWGM6HeFmuDNUjX76Ert4Z4IY714dhZHPLd” crossorigin=”anonymous”>

Example: In this example, we are using the pure-table class of Pure CSS to make a table. These tables are just like the normal HTML tables, but with padding and border added to table elements and with an emphasized header. To create a default table add class “pure-table” to the <table> element.


<!DOCTYPE html>
    <!--Import Pure CSS files-->
    <link rel="stylesheet" 
    <!-- Let browser know website is
        optimized for mobile -->
    <meta name="viewport" 
          content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0" />
    <h2>Default Table: </h2>
    <!-- Add class "pure-table" -->
    <table class="pure-table">
                <th>Sr no.</th>
                <th>Employee Name</th>
