Effortless Elegance in Web Design

Embrace ZEN, where simplicity meets sophistication.

Introduction to ZEN

ZEN (Zero Effort Notation) blends the best of BEM, utility-first CSS, and atomic design into a singular, effortless approach to styling websites. This innovative ideology streamlines UI development, ensuring a seamless, consistent design flow. ZEN is more than a styling framework; it's a philosophy that values intuitive structure, adaptability, and clarity, making it a quintessential choice for developers and teams seeking an elegant balance in web design.

Why Choose ZEN?

  • Structured Adaptability: Melds a well-organized approach with the flexibility to accommodate dynamic design needs.
  • Intuitive Design Flow: 'Form before function' principle for effortless design evolution.
  • Cross-team Clarity: Enhances communication and understanding among diverse team members.
  • Modularity and Scalability: Ideal for growing projects and diverse applications.

Core Principles of ZEN

  1. Hierarchical Structure
    • Elements: Fundamental units like buttons and images.
    • Components: Complex units like cards and modals.
    • Sections: Assembly of components forming webpage segments.
  2. Style and Functional Utility Modifiers

    In zenCSS, themes and background classes format both background and text colors of their children. You're able to enhance the content presentation at the container, row, column or element level with our content modifiers.

    From a design standpoint, consider using this formula for element styling: theme → background modifications → text modifications → other styling, modifications, animations, and so on.

    • Six unique utility categories are available to shape content, appearance and behavior.
    • Full Order: Type → State → Theme → Background → Text → Style.
  3. <div class="card active theme-dark bg-white text-black text-bold">...</div>
  4. Common Structural Layout
    • Organize using Columns, Rows, and Containers.
    • Auto-optimized for all devices, with customizable options.
