Slate Core

SASS Core

Slate's SASS Core is a standalone NPM package that can be used independently of the engine. If you are working with systems that have built in asset pipeline like Laraval, Ruby or .Net Core, then this is probably what you want.

Slate is a Swiss army knife. Build anything. Build it fast. Learn how to make it adapt to your workflow right here.

Using Forms

Slate contains a number of mixin's to help you very quickly build out html forms, complete with validation states using either classes or native HTML5 validation.

Using the Grid System

One grid to rule them all. Slates grid system is really powerful and adaptable to any design you can dream up. Coding complex layouts has never been easier.

Using Typography

Good typography is one thing often overlooked on a lot of websites. Don't let your next build make the same mistake.

Using Helper Mixins

Small mixins that can accomplish great things like help you embed videos responsively, use custom fonts, and calculate REM units like a boss.

Build Engine

Build Engine

Deploying your site

Deploying sites can be a pain with FTP. Slate contains a bash script to help you push new changes up fast and accurately.
