Practical CSS Grid: Adding Grid to an Existing Design image/svg+xml

Understanding and using Grid is easier than you might expect. The day Grid support shipped in Firefox 52, I decided on the spur of the moment to convert the basic layout of my personal site to use Grid. And it was a fairly simple process—five minutes to write the grid styles, then 15-20 spent troubleshooting.

It’s good to read a practical guide where CSS Grid has been applied to a real-world site. I hope we get to read more of these in the future.

Don’t Overthink It (Flexbox) Grids image/svg+xml

My point, again: it’s not required that you reach for a grid framework to build a grid. You can do it! This is also not to say that flexbox is trivially easy and you’ll never have any problems. There are plenty of edge cases and weird browser support things that you may run into if you start using more niche flexbox features. The stuff we looked at here is pretty vanilla though and I’d be surprised if you had problems.

Some good flexbox grid advice from Chris Coyier. Chris has a knack of breaking things down and keeping things simple, stupid.

Grid Layout & Flexbox City image/svg+xml

CSS GRID LAYOUT is nearly finalized. Which means it’s time for designers and front-end developers to set the flags enabling their browsers to support the new specification, put CSS Flexbox through its paces by using it to create layouts, and see if anything breaks.
