Provide WikimediaUI Base's base.less in core to enable front-end developers to make use of basic cross-foundational design properties.
It contains agreed-on style values (background-colors/colors from color palette M82, font families, borders, opacities, box-shadows, from M101 etc.) that are part of Wikimedia Foundation user interface style guide in order to provide a consistent interface regardless of what front-end framework / library contributors and developers are using.
What to accomplish:
- Provide one place for fundamental design properties shared in themes and extensions in order for possible design adaptions across Foundation products
- Provide standardized way for developers to make use of those fundamental design properties in the products, without caring about copying and comparing hex codes, pixel sizes and other stylesheet values.
