Flat css classes to support utility class naming conventions.

I would really like to be able to create reusable classes that I can use on multiple elements in order to limit css file size.

For instance, it would be awesome to be able to add a mg-bottom-10 class to an element in order to give it a margin bottom of 10 but also be able to add a padding-left-10 class to it to give it padding on the left.

If I wanted to add just the padding to another element, then I would just add padding-left-10.

A ton of my classes are really for this type of purpose, but with nested css like Webflow builds it is impossible to create high-purpose css classes.

An example of a framework that uses this kind of class naming system is Tailwind CSS, and Bootstrap uses this as well with Bootstrap 4.

    Christopher you commented that it exists, do you have any resources? I was just about to post this as a wishlist item

    Looks like this already exists! I can't delete this idea, but it is possible to do this.
