Hi there. I have looked in themes profiles section, tutorials, and other parts of this forum but could not find anything regarding CSS for frontend display. For me, I don't think I have to re-invent the CSS wheel but like to attach a CSS sheet and adapt parts of it in my site. Any recommendations are welcome.

Processwire is a headless cms/cmf and as such it only delivers your backend to the frontend
in anyway you want with 0 limitations. That is what makes Processwire so great.

Choose any cms framework you want but I really recommend not to start with big ones
like bootstrap - uikit - etc.

I recommend to start with pocketgrid css because it is perfect to first get familiar
with using the processwire api outputting backend data on the front.

Once familiar with the Processwire api you can choose any cms framework you like.
Bulma css is a great choice also ... flex based and all css ... no preinstalled JS, modular components (only use what you need)

I recommend starting with uikit 😉 Note that this post is not intended to start a fight on which one to use as this is always a matter of preference, but here are my pro's for using uikit 🙂 

  • You have plenty of ready to use ui components (as with any other framework): https://getuikit.com/docs/introduction
  • You can use RockFrontend to get a 1-click-downloader as well as a solid setup and an example video to get you started: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7CoIj--u4ps
  • The PW backend does also use UIkit, so knowing UIkit will help you a lot when customizing the PW backend to your needs (either via CSS/LESS or when implementing custom admin pages)
  • UIkit has longer release cycles than bootstrap for example so for mee it just feels more solid than bootstrap for example, but that's very opinionated of course...
