Vanilla JS

Start with the installation and then feel free to explore the different sections of the design system to start building applications based on ENGIE standards.

npm (tag) Fluid Licence



Install the package inside your application from npmjs:

npm install @engie-group/fluid-design-system


When you only need to include compiled CSS or JS from Fluid, you can use our CDN links:

<!-- Styles -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="" crossorigin="anonymous">
<!-- Scripts -->
<script src="" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>
<script src="" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>

Fonts and icons

Fluid Design System uses the Lato font as global font family, read more about the typography on the dedicated section.

ENGIE has selected the Google material font as default icons pack, read more on the icons documentation.

Be sure to include these fonts into the HTML header:

<link href="|Lato:300,400,700,900&display=swap" rel="stylesheet"/>

Basic usage

You can use the built files from the lib/ directory.


Make sure to include the Google material icons first.

Include the library

Copy-paste the stylesheet <link> into your <head> before all other stylesheets to load our CSS.

<link href="/your-css-path/fluid-design-system.css" rel="stylesheet">
Include a single component

Include the Toggle component styles only:

<link href="/your-css-path/components/toggle/index.css" rel="stylesheet">


NEW Automatic component initialization

Set an id attribute named root on a global container from where components will be watched for initialization.

  <div id="root"></div>

Place the following <script> near the end of your pages, right before the closing </body> tag, to enable components using JS.

Thanks to auto-init.js you don’t need to worry about components initialization.
Add auto-init.js above lib script tag.

<script src="/your-js-path/lib/fluid-design-system.js"></script>
<script src="/your-js-path/lib/auto-init.js"></script>

Initialization for a single component import

Include the Collapse component UMD script:

<script src="/your-js-path/lib/components/collapse/index.js"></script>

Initiate components:

document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', function(event) {

Advanced usage

You can import the sources files from the src/ directory. Feel free to use your asset builder (Webpack, gulp, grunt…)


Make sure to include the Google material icons first if you import the entire library or icon component.

Import the library

Import the library in your project:

@import "~@engie-group/fluid-design-system/src/fluid-design-system.scss";
Import a single component

Import the Toggle component file only:

@import "~@engie-group/fluid-design-system/src/components/toggle";

If the import is not working, use this one instead (see Index Files):

@import "~@engie-group/fluid-design-system/src/components/toggle/_index";


import NJ from '@engie-group/fluid-design-system';
import '@engie-group/fluid-design-system/lib/auto-init';


import NJ from '@engie-group/fluid-design-system';
document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', function(event) {
Import a single component

Components can be included individually

  • Import the library component in your project.
import Collapse from '@engie-group/fluid-design-system/lib/components/collapse';
  • Initialize the component:
document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', function(event) {


If you have any issues while getting set up with Fluid Design System, please create an issue or a request on our library git repository.
