Color Utilites

Color utilities allow you to apply color variants to any Fizz component. Colors generally have very specific use cases, so only apply color utilities as specified in a design.

Background Color

The default background color is white. Most elements have a transparent background unless otherwise specified. You can use these utility classes to apply a different background color to any element.

Inheriting Color

There might be instances where you want to have some text in an <a> element but not use the default link color. You can use .fizz-text-inherit to inherit the color of the anchor element's parent ($gray-800 by default).

This is a link

This is a link inheriting color

HTML
<p><a href="">This is a link</a></p>
<p><a href="" class="fizz-text-inherit">This is a link inheriting color</a></p>

Underline None

You may also want to prevent the link's underline from appearing on hover, providing some other affordance on the container to indicate it's clickable. Use .fizz-underline-none to remove the underline on hover.

This is a link with no underline

HTML
<p><a href="" class="fizz-text-inherit fizz-underline-none">This is a link with no underline</a></p>

Icon Color

You can apply text color utilities to the parent of an .fizz-icon element and the icon's fill color will inherit that color.

The icon is the same color as the text

HTML
<div class="fizz-text-deal fizz-flex-row-8">
<svg class="fizz-icon-24" role="img" aria-hidden="true" width="24" height="24"><use xlink:href="#icon-tag"></use></svg>
<p>The icon is the same color as the text</p>
</div>
