All UIkit core components at a glance.

UIkit offers over 30 modular and extendible components, which can be combined with each other. Components are divided into different compartments according to their purpose and functionality.


These components generally normalize HTML elements for cross browser functionality and add some very basic styling.

UIkit offers different types of navigations, like navigation bars and side navigations. Use breadcrumbs or a pagination to steer through articles.


Style basic HTML elements, like tables and forms. These components use their own classes. They won't interfere with any default element styling.


Here you'll find components that you often use within your content, like buttons, icons, badges, overlays, animations and much more.


These components rely mostly on JavaScript to fade in hidden content, like dropdowns, modal dialogs, off-canvas bars and tooltips.

CSS architecture

To avoid conflicts with other CSS frameworks, all UIkit classes are name-spaced with the uk- prefix. Components are divided into the component itself, sub-objects and modifiers, whose class names always pick up the component name.


Object Description
Component Components abstract recurring parts of a website into class-based modules, like buttons for example. These can be reused and combined.
Sub-object Sub-objects are placed within a component to enhance its funtionality, for example a close button in an alert box.
Modifier Modifier classes alter the style of components and their sub-objects, like button colors and sizes.
