Links

Please note Primer v16 has changed the naming of these color classes. Check the migration guide to make sure your app is up to date.

By default <a> elements already use the right link color and apply an underline on hover. So in most cases the .Link class is not really needed.

If you like to override the default link styles you can do so with the following link utilities. Bear in mind that link styles are easier for more people to see and interact with when the changes in styles do not rely on color alone.

Use .Link--primary to turn the link color to blue only on hover.

Use .Link--secondary for a more subtle link color that turns blue on hover.

Use .Link--muted also removes the underline on hover. Tip: You can also use the .no-underline utility to do the same for .Link--primary.

Use .Link--onHover to make any text color used with links to turn blue on hover. This is useful when you want only part of a link to turn blue on hover.

The .Link class can be nested inside an <a> element if only part of it should be styled like a link.

Link classes in combination with color utilities lets you colorize information separately inside of a link but have all of the link turn into one color on hover.
