Hello Coders,

This article presents three open-source seed projects generated by AppSeed on top of Pixel Lite, a modern accessibility-first UI Kit crafted by Themesberg. Projects are released under the MIT license on Github, a license that permits unlimited hobby & commercial use. Being simple, tested, and production-ready starters, beginners can sharp their programming skills by using these projects as coding playgrounds.

Pixel Lite - Free seed project coded in Django by AppSeed.


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.
