common questions
  • Is Anole free?
    It is open source, and the source code is available on Github. Some themes and extensions may not be free, however, so always check with theme/extension developer.
  • Can I use Anole with XYZ-FRAMEWORK?
    Anole should work with pretty much any framework out there, so long as that framework doesn't use the same class names. That's pretty unlikely to happen, but if you find any conflicts, please report a bug.
  • Why was anole created?
    As a web designer, I wanted to see just how much I could achieve with the sole use of CSS, without sacrificing speed or beauty. What started a personal experiment, evolved into something that others can use.
  • Does Anole support IE 11?
    No. Anole extensively uses CSS features (eg. custom properties) which are NOT supported in IE 11. As a result, Anole will not work in this, or other outdated browsers. This is not a mistake; Anole was designed from the ground up to be a modern, forward-looking project, and as such, there is no intention of adding direct support for such older broswers.

    You may be able to get support via an extension or theme, but keep in mind that such may not be free.
probably should never be asked:
  • Can I EAT you Anole?
    You could, but you probably shouldn't.
  • Will you marry me, Anole?
    Is that even legal? I mean, I'm flattered and all, but I'm a CSS Framework...
  • you know those little bags of silica...
    Don't even start!
