Typography

Typography is the structure of every well designed interface. It is used to guide users through the interface and help them understand the logic behind the interface intuitively.

Global settings

ENGIE uses the LATO font. ENGIE provides headlines and a set of size. When more control is needed, check out the textual utility classes.

These styles can be found within _reboot.scss, and the global variables are defined in _variables.scss. Make sure to set $font-size-base in rem.

Installation

The import of the font into the <head> is mandatory :

<link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Lato:300,400,700,900&display=swap" rel="stylesheet"/>

Font Weight

Font-weight light : Lato Light 300

Font-weight Regular : Lato Regular 400

Font-weight Bold : Lato Bold 700

Font-weight Black : Lato Black 900

<p class="font-weight-light">Font-weight light : Lato Light 300</p> 
<p class="font-weight-normal">Font-weight Regular : Lato Regular 400</p>
<p class="font-weight-bold">Font-weight Bold : Lato Bold 700</p>
<p class="font-weight-black">Font-weight Black : Lato Black 900</p>

Type scale

We use a namespace based on the metric prefix. The type scale goes from 12(px)(0.75rem) to 76(px)(4.75rem). Check out the textual utility classes for scale.

$fs-map: (
  "peta": 4.75rem, // 76px
  "tera": 3.375rem, // 54px
  "giga": 2.25rem, // 36px
  "mega": 1.75rem, // 28px
  "kilo": 1.5rem, // 24px
  "hecto": 1.25rem, // 20px
  "deca": 1.125rem, // 18px
  "base": 1rem, // 16px
  "deci": .875rem, // 14px
  "centi": .75rem // 12px
);

Headings

All HTML headings, <h1> through <h6>, are available.

$h1-font-size: map-get($fs-map, "peta"); // 76px
$h2-font-size: map-get($fs-map, "tera"); // 54px
$h3-font-size: map-get($fs-map, "giga"); // 36px
$h4-font-size: map-get($fs-map, "kilo"); // 24px
$h5-font-size: map-get($fs-map, "base"); // 16px
$h6-font-size: map-get($fs-map, "deci"); // 14px

It is possible to customize this range of heading for your own project if this one is not appropriate. See the _type.scss file to change value.

Heading Example

<h1></h1>

h1 heading

<h2></h2>

h2 heading

<h3></h3>

h3 heading

<h4></h4>

h4 heading

<h5></h5>

h5 heading

<h6></h6>

h6 heading
<h1>h1 heading</h1>
<h2>h2 heading</h2>
<h3>h3 heading</h3>
<h4>h4 heading</h4>
<h5>h5 heading</h5>
<h6>h6 heading</h6>

.h1 through .h6 classes are also available, for when you want to match the font styling of a heading but cannot use the associated HTML element.

Check out the textual utility classes for other css classes.

Peta size text

Giga size text

Mega size text

Kilo size text

Base size text

Deci size text

<p class="h1">Peta size text</p>
<p class="h2">Giga size text</p>
<p class="h3">Mega size text</p>
<p class="h4">Kilo size text</p>
<p class="h5">Base size text</p>
<p class="h6">Deci size text</p>

Lead

Make a paragraph stand out by adding .nj-lead.

Vivamus sagittis lacus vel augue laoreet rutrum faucibus dolor auctor. Duis mollis, est non commodo luctus.

<p class="nj-lead">
  Vivamus sagittis lacus vel augue laoreet rutrum faucibus dolor auctor. Duis mollis, est non commodo luctus.
</p>

Inline text elements

Styling for common inline HTML5 elements.

You can use the mark tag to highlight text.

This line of text is meant to be treated as deleted text.

This line of text is meant to be treated as no longer accurate.

This line of text is meant to be treated as an addition to the document.

This line of text will render as underlined

This line of text is meant to be treated as fine print.

This line rendered as bold text.

This line rendered as italicized text.

<p>You can use the mark tag to <mark>highlight</mark> text.</p>
<p><del>This line of text is meant to be treated as deleted text.</del></p>
<p><s>This line of text is meant to be treated as no longer accurate.</s></p>
<p><ins>This line of text is meant to be treated as an addition to the document.</ins></p>
<p><u>This line of text will render as underlined</u></p>
<p><small>This line of text is meant to be treated as fine print.</small></p>
<p><strong>This line rendered as bold text.</strong></p>
<p><em>This line rendered as italicized text.</em></p>

.mark and .small classes are also available to apply the same styles as <mark> and <small> while avoiding any unwanted semantic implications that the tags would bring.

While not shown above, feel free to use <b> and <i> in HTML5. <b> is meant to highlight words or phrases without conveying additional importance while <i> is mostly for voice, technical terms, etc.

Text utilities

Change text alignment, transform, style, weight, and color with our text utilities and color utilities.

Abbreviations

Stylized implementation of HTML’s <abbr> element for abbreviations and acronyms to show the expanded version on hover. Abbreviations have a default underline and gain a help cursor to provide additional context on hover and to users of assistive technologies.

Add .initialism to an abbreviation for a slightly smaller font-size.

attr

HTML

<p><abbr title="attribute">attr</abbr></p>
<p><abbr title="HyperText Markup Language" class="initialism">HTML</abbr></p>

Blockquotes

For quoting blocks of content from another source within your document. Wrap <blockquote class="blockquote"> around any HTML as the quote.

format_quote

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Integer posuere erat a ante.

<blockquote class="blockquote">
  <i class="blockquote__icon material-icons md--primary md-48">format_quote</i>
  <p class="mb-0">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Integer posuere erat a ante.</p>
</blockquote>

Naming a source

Add a <footer class="blockquote__footer"> for identifying the source. Wrap the name of the source work in <cite>.

format_quote

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Integer posuere erat a ante.

Someone famous in Source Title
<blockquote class="blockquote">
  <i class="blockquote__icon material-icons md--primary md-48">format_quote</i><p class="mb-0">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Integer posuere erat a ante.</p>
  <footer class="blockquote__footer">Someone famous in <cite title="Source Title">Source Title</cite></footer>
</blockquote>

Lists

Unstyled

Remove the default list-style and left margin on list items (immediate children only). This only applies to immediate children list items, meaning you will need to add the class for any nested lists as well.

  • Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet
  • Consectetur adipiscing elit
  • Integer molestie lorem at massa
  • Facilisis in pretium nisl aliquet
  • Nulla volutpat aliquam velit
    • Phasellus iaculis neque
    • Purus sodales ultricies
    • Vestibulum laoreet porttitor sem
    • Ac tristique libero volutpat at
  • Faucibus porta lacus fringilla vel
  • Aenean sit amet erat nunc
  • Eget porttitor lorem
<ul class="list-unstyled">
  <li>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet</li>
  <li>Consectetur adipiscing elit</li>
  <li>Integer molestie lorem at massa</li>
  <li>Facilisis in pretium nisl aliquet</li>
  <li>Nulla volutpat aliquam velit
    <ul>
      <li>Phasellus iaculis neque</li>
      <li>Purus sodales ultricies</li>
      <li>Vestibulum laoreet porttitor sem</li>
      <li>Ac tristique libero volutpat at</li>
    </ul>
  </li>
  <li>Faucibus porta lacus fringilla vel</li>
  <li>Aenean sit amet erat nunc</li>
  <li>Eget porttitor lorem</li>
</ul>

Inline

Remove a list’s bullets and apply some light margin with a combination of two classes, .list-inline and .list-inline-item.

  • Lorem ipsum
  • Phasellus iaculis
  • Nulla volutpat
<ul class="list-inline">
  <li class="list-inline-item">Lorem ipsum</li>
  <li class="list-inline-item">Phasellus iaculis</li>
  <li class="list-inline-item">Nulla volutpat</li>
</ul>

Description list alignment

Align terms and descriptions horizontally by using our grid system’s predefined classes (or semantic mixins). For longer terms, you can optionally add a .text-truncate class to truncate the text with an ellipsis.

Description lists
A description list is perfect for defining terms.
Euismod

Donec id elit non mi porta gravida at eget metus.

Malesuada porta
Etiam porta sem malesuada magna mollis euismod.
