Need to know

  • Layout: familiar ways to lay out content or other elements on a page (and responsively at different screen sizes).
  • Spacing: spacing details within a component or detailed User Interface, such as between checkbox and label.
  • Sizing: component sizing options i.e. "Small", "Medium", "Large": in code, `sm`, `md`, `lg`.
  • Vertical rhythm: keep vertical spaces between elements on a page consistent.
  • Baseline grid: the baseline is the invisible line upon which a line of text rests. A baseline grid is used to achieve vertical rhythm.
  • Alignment: Horizontal rhythm in typography affects legibility.
