Pixel Lite - UI Kit
Pixel is a free, fully responsive, and modern Bootstrap 4 UI Kit that will help you build creative and professional websites. Use our components and sections, switch some Sass variables to build and arrange pages to best suit your needs.
The HTML version can be downloaded from the official product page or directly from Github (no difference in terms of source code).
The Kit is provided with a generous number of components and pre-built pages, carefully coded and styled by Themesberg.
A strong asset of this free UI Kit is the accessibility compliance with the latest standards. The product passes the WAVE evaluation tool and Achecker tool.
Pixel UI - Flask version
The Flask version is bundled in a simple codebase, with database configuration, ORM, session-based authentication, and deployment tools for Docker, HEROKU.
The seed project can be compiled with ease just by following the instructions provided in the README file. Before you start, make sure you have Python3 installed and GIT command tool, to download the sources directly from the public repository.
