Primer vs Pure: What are the differences?

Developers describe Primer as "CSS toolkit and guidelines that power GitHub". Primer is the basecoat of GitHub, made by nerds just like you who share a passion for HTML and CSS. On the other hand, Pure is detailed as "A set of small, responsive CSS modules that you can use in every web project". Pure is meant to be a starting point for every website or web app. We take care of all the CSS work that every site needs, without making it look cookie-cutter.

Primer and Pure can be primarily classified as "Front-End Frameworks" tools.

"simple" is the top reason why over 3 developers like Primer, while over 12 developers mention "Lightweight" as the leading cause for choosing Pure.

Primer and Pure are both open source tools. It seems that Pure with 20.1K GitHub stars and 2.07K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Primer with 8.42K GitHub stars and 621 GitHub forks.
