Quick start

To start using this design system you will need to import some files in your current project or start from scratch using our template (scroll down in this page to view it).

Tooling setup

You can install the Soft UI Design System using NPM:

npm i soft-ui-design-system

Bootstrap CDN

Skip the download with BootstrapCDN to deliver cached version of Bootstrap’s compiled CSS and JS to your project.

<!-- CSS only -->
<link href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/[email protected]/dist/css/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet" integrity="sha384-giJF6kkoqNQ00vy+HMDP7azOuL0xtbfIcaT9wjKHr8RbDVddVHyTfAAsrekwKmP1" crossorigin="anonymous">
<!-- JavaScript Bundle with Popper -->
<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/[email protected]/dist/js/bootstrap.bundle.min.js" integrity="sha384-ygbV9kiqUc6oa4msXn9868pTtWMgiQaeYH7/t7LECLbyPA2x65Kgf80OJFdroafW" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>


Copy-paste the stylesheet <link> into your <head> before all other stylesheets to load our CSS.

<!-- Fonts -->
<link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Open+Sans:300,400,600,700" rel="stylesheet">

<!-- Icons -->
<link href="./assets/css/nucleo-icons.css" rel="stylesheet">
<script src="https://kit.fontawesome.com/42d5adcbca.js" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>

<!-- Theme CSS -->
<link type="text/css" href="./assets/css/soft-design-system-pro.min.css" rel="stylesheet">


Many of our components require the use of JavaScript to function. Specifically , Popper.js, and our own JavaScript plugins. Place the following <script>s near the end of your pages, right before the closing </body> tag, to enable them. Popper.js must come and then our JavaScript plugins.

<!-- Core -->
<script src="/assets/js/core/popper.min.js"></script>
<script src="/assets/js/core/bootstrap.min.js"></script>

<!-- Theme JS -->
<script src="./assets/js/soft-design-system-pro.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

Need to use a certain plugin in your page? You can find out how to integrate them and make them work in the Plugins dedicated page. In this way you will be sure that your website is optimized and uses only the needed resources.

Bootstrap starter template

Be sure to have your pages set up with the latest design and development standards. That means using an HTML5 doctype and including a viewport meta tag for proper responsive behaviors. Put it all together and your pages should look like this:

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, shrink-to-fit=no">

  <title>Hello World!</title>

  <!-- Favicon -->
  <link href="/assets/img/brand/favicon.png" rel="icon" type="image/png">

  <!-- Icons -->
  <link href="./assets/css/nucleo-icons.css" rel="stylesheet">
  <script src="https://kit.fontawesome.com/42d5adcbca.js" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>

  <!-- Soft UI Design System -->
  <link type="text/css" href="./assets/css/soft-design-system-pro.min.css" rel="stylesheet">
  <h1>Hello, world!</h1>

Important globals

Soft UI Design System employs a handful of important global styles and settings that you’ll need to be aware of when using it, all of which are almost exclusively geared towards the normalization of cross browser styles. Let’s dive in.

HTML5 doctype

Bootstrap requires the use of the HTML5 doctype. Without it, you’ll see some funky incomplete styling, but including it shouldn’t cause any considerable hiccups.

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">

Responsive meta tag

Bootstrap is developed mobile first, a strategy in which we optimize code for mobile devices first and then scale up components as necessary using CSS media queries. To ensure proper rendering and touch zooming for all devices, add the responsive viewport meta tag to your <head>.

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, shrink-to-fit=no">

You can see an example of this in action in the starter template.

Bootstrap components

Many of Bootstrap’s components and utilities are built with @each loops that iterate over a Sass map. This is especially helpful for generating variants of a component by our $theme-colors and creating responsive variants for each breakpoint. As you customize these Sass maps and recompile, you’ll automatically see your changes reflected in these loops.
