A US Web Design System website

What is Project Corsair?

Project Corsair is an interpretation of the US Web DesignSystem (USWDS) 2.0. The purpose is to serve as a testing ground and candidate for one federal agency's template refresh, as well as providing examples for others to use. The inital ground rules are to stick with the USWDS as the foundation wherever possible, maximize accessibility and performance, and provide a professional design that will work for a wide range of websites. This is very much a work in progress and as features are added, links in the menu will be activated. As styles are extended, they will be available on Github.
