Primer CSS is a free open-source CSS framework based on principles that lay the groundwork for basic design components including spacing, font, and color. This strategy ensures that our patterns are consistent and compatible with one another. Object-Oriented CSS principles, functional CSS, and BEM architecture all affect its CSS approach. It is extremely reusable and adaptable. It was made using the GitHub design system. Primer CSS is Obvious and transparent.

In this article, we are going to discuss the typographic utilities that are provided in Primer CSS. Typography is one of the most important aspects of a web page’s appearance. A good choice of typography style and sizes can change the whole aspect of a webpage.  

Primer CSS Typographic Utilities and Used Classes:

Heading Utilities: Mainly used to style and customize the headings as we want.

  • h1-h6: All the heading utilities classes are used to change an element to a heading. The range 1-6 is used to determine the size and the font-weight of that element. 

Even if we add an “h2” class to an h3 element, the h3 element will act and look like an h2 element. 

Syntax:

<p class="h1">. . . .</p>

Line Height Utilities:  The usage of these utility classes is mainly used to specify the amount of space between the lines of an element.

  • lh-default: This class adds the default one line-height space between the lines.
  • lh-condensed: This class adds half line-height space between the lines.
  • lh-condensed-ultra: This class adds quarter line-height space between the lines.
  • lh-0: This class is used to have no space between two lines. 

Syntax:

<p class="lh-condensed">. . . .</p>

Typographic Styles Utilities: This is used to customize the texts on the webpage.

  • text-normal: Using this class the font-weight, style, and alignment will be the default. 
  • text-italic: Using this class the alignment is changed to Italic
  • text-bold: Using this class the font-weight is changed to bold
  • text-semibold: Using this class the font-weight is changed to semi-bold
  • text-light: Using this class the font-weight is changed to light. 
  • text-uppercase: Using this class the alphabets are changed to UPPERCASE. 
  • no-wrap: Using this class the sentence will never wrap into the next line. 
  • ws-normal: Using this class the sentence will wrap when necessary. 
  • text-underline: Using this class the text is Underlined. 
  • no-underline: Using this class the text is not underlined. 
  • text-emphasized: Using this class the font-weight is set to bold, and the font size is increased. 
  • text-small: Using this class the font-weight is not bold, and the font size is reduced.
  • lead: Using this class the font-weight is set to semi-bold, and the font size is increased a lot. 
  • text-mono: Using this class all characters have the same width.

Syntax:

<p class="text-underline">. . . .</p>

Word-break: The two word-break utility classes are used to specify how the line will break when the words meet the end.

  • wb-break-word: When this class is used long words which exceed the line length are broken when the line meets the end others are just taken to the next line.
  • wb-break-all: When this class is used all words are broken when the line meets the end. 

Syntax:

<p class="wb-break-all">. . . .</p>

Align Utilities: This utility is used to align the text.

  • text-left: Used to align the text to the left side.
  • text-center: Used to align the text to the center.
  • text-right: Used to align the text to the right side.

Syntax:

<p class="text-center">. . . .</p>

Example 1: In the code below the heading is underlined and is in italic using the h2, text-italic, and text-underline.
