Installing Semantic UI: We can use Semantic UI in the following two ways.
Method 1: Using CDN Link: In this method, we will add CDN links to the head section of the code without installing it.
<link href=”https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/semantic-ui/2.4.1/semantic.min.css” rel=”stylesheet” />
Method 2: The second way of using is the downloading min.css file of the Semantic UI whose link you can find on the semantic UI official site and use it directly and it works offline.
Now let’s understand the working of Semantic UI using an example.
Example: This example creates a simple Log In Form.
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>Semantic UI</title> <link href= "https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/semantic-ui/2.4.1/semantic.min.css" rel="stylesheet" /> <script src= "https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/semantic-ui/2.4.1/semantic.min.js"> </script> <script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.1.1.min.js" integrity= "sha256-hVVnYaiADRTO2PzUGmuLJr8BLUSjGIZsDYGmIJLv2b8=" crossorigin="anonymous"> </script> </head> <body> <div class="ui container"> <h2>Log In</h2> <form class="ui form"> <div class="field"> <label>Username</label> <input type="text" name="Username" placeholder="Username"> </div> <div class="field"> <label>Password</label> <input type="password" name="password" placeholder="Password"> </div> <div class="field"> <div class="ui checkbox"> <input type="checkbox" tabindex="0" class="hidden"> <label>Remember Me</label> </div> </div> <button class="ui button" type="submit"> Log In </button> </form> </div> <script> $('.ui.checkbox').checkbox(); </script> </body> </html>
