    A simple css helper to use with every css frameworks.

    Getting Started

    Download latest version or install by bower:

    bower install silicone

    Then just include it by HTML link:

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/silicone.min.css" />


    Use Unpkg to get latest version file.


    Box Centered

    Use .box-center to make an <div> element align centered. (By using margin: 0 auto;)

    It will remove float styles from this element.

    Vertical Align

    <div class="vertical-align" style="height: 200px">
        <div class="vertical-align-middle">

    This is an full example.

    <div class="container">
        <div class="row">
            <div class="col-md-6">
                <div class="well vertical-align" style="height: 200px">
                    <div class="vertical-align-middle">
                            Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit.
            <div class="col-md-6">
                <div class="well vertical-align" style="height: 200px">
                    <div class="vertical-align-bottom">
                            Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit.


    Use .table-layout

    table-layout can help us do vertical align with display: table method but won't break bootstrap col-* classes.

    Also supported media queries (xs- ~ lg-) to create RWD sites.

    <div class="row table-layout">
        <div class="col-md-6 md-table-cell vertical-align-middle">
        <div class="col-md-6 md-table-cell vertical-align-middle">


    Use float-group class to wrap elements, this name is more semantic.

    <div class="float-group">
        <div class="pull-left"></div>
        <div class="pull-left"></div>
        <div class="pull-left"></div>

    Or use classic sc-clearfix class.

        <div class="pull-left"></div>
        <div class="pull-left"></div>
        <div class="pull-left"></div>
        <div class="sc-clearfix"></div>



    A simple class set to set vh height to elements.

    • .height-xs: 20vh
    • .height-sm: 40vh
    • .height-md: 60vh
    • .height-lg: 80vh
    • .height-full: 100vh


    Width classes is useful if you want some elements full width in RWD.

    This example will make button 100% width when breakpoint small than 767px.

    <button class="btn btn-primary sm-width-full">Submit</button>
    • .xs-width-full: Full width if <= 479px
    • .sm-width-full: Full width if <= 575px
    • .md-width-full: Full width if <= 991px
    • .lg-width-full: Full width if <= 1199px
    • .xl-width-full: Always full width.

    Grid Columns Equal Height

    Use .equal-hight on row div to make child columns equal height.

    <div class="row equal-height">
        <div class="col-lg-4"></div>
        <div class="col-lg-4"></div>
        <div class="col-lg-4"></div>

    This class uses flex-wrap property.

    Background Mask

    bg-mask class helps us set a background mask to element.

    This example use bg-mask to create black ::before element and bg-mask-op-5 add opacity 0.5 to overlay the background image. And the bg-mask-content make sure content text will float on the top.

    <div class="bg-mask bg-mask-op-5" style="background-image: url(http://i.imgur.com/6FWMGdH.jpg);">
        <div class="bg-mask-content">
            <h1 style="color: white">Hello World</h1>

    The full example is:

    <div class="bg-mask bg-mask-op-5 text-center bg-cover bg-center-center"
        style="background-image: url(http://i.imgur.com/6FWMGdH.jpg);">
        <div class="height-md vertical-align">
            <div class="vertical-align-middle bg-mask-content">
                <h1 style="color: white">Hello World</h1>


    The bg-mask-op-* support 1 to 9.

    bg-cover is a helpful class to set background-size: cover.

    Background Blur

    <div class="bg-blur bg-blur-full">
        <div class="bg-blur-content">

    Background Position

    You can use .bg-{position} classes to set background position.

    • .bg-center-center
    • .bg-top
    • .bg-middle
    • .bg-bottpm
    • .bg-left
    • .bg-center
    • .bg-right

    Margin and Padding

    Margin and Padding is a fork of less-space library.

    <div class="container">
      <div class="row">
        <div id="content" class="col-md-8 xs-mb-40 md-mb-20">
        </div><!-- content -->
        <div id="sidebar" class="col-md-4 xs-mb-40 md-mb-20">
        </div><!-- sidebar -->
      </div><!-- "row" -->
    </div><!-- "container" -->

    You don't need to know Bootstrap or any other CSS Framework to understand xs-mb-20 actually does. Let's examine these 3 parted class with a visual diagram.

    Red area:

    This section defines which viewport that element belongs right now.

    • xs Mobile phones and bigger screen sizes.. xs represents global viewport size by the way. If we want margin or padding values stay same on all screen sizes, we use xs to achieve that.
    • sm (>= 576px) Tablet devices and bigger screens.
    • md (>= 768px) Desktop and bigger screens
    • lg (>= 992px) Large viewport sizes.
    • xl (>= 1200px) Extra large wide viewport sizes.

    Blue area

    This section defines the attribute that you want to use, either margin or padding

    • p padding
    • pt padding-top
    • pr padding-right
    • pb padding-bottom
    • pl padding-left
    • m margin
    • mt margin-top
    • mr margin-right
    • mb margin-bottom
    • ml margin-left

    Green area

    This is the integer section that you want to set.

    • It could be zero "0"
    • Only digits.
    • Minus values will not be accepted. (I Didn't define them consider its using rate.)
    • Currently supports: 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 40, 50, 75, 100
