    I agree. That is why I actually just decided to use different css files for different themes in sakura.css [1] (it comes in at 3.8k / ~1.8k gzipped)

    I also had friends who didn't want to understand CSS, and adding in media queries, variables, and dark mode support would only just confuse them even more.

    Ever need style for some plain HTML? Then classless CSS frameworks are for you. I started using these when working on code examples for our Best Date Libraries post. The plain HTML examples looked distractingly ugly, but writing I didn't want to write any CSS. I found Sakura, a classless CSS framework. With just one CSS file my examples looked far more polished. And I didn't have to change the HTML at all.
