I am developing a style guide for a web application. I would like to find some good example style guides online to refer to. I am not having much luck with Google. What are some good resources to help get me started?

Do you need CSS/Visual Design Style guide..? – Ravi Dec 7 '11 at 5:25
Do you mean a visual style guide, a user interface style guide, or one about the copy of the app? – Pep López May 27 '13 at 11:41

Web app style guides are very rare... I've found by a research some time ago a good style guide for web apps. Hope it helps.
