CSS flex property. A Complete Guide to Flexbox. Background The Flexbox Layout (Flexible Box) module (currently a W3C Last Call Working Draft) aims at providing a more efficient way to lay out, align and distribute space among items in a container, even when their size is unknown and/or dynamic (thus the word "flex").

A Complete Guide to Flexbox

The main idea behind the flex layout is to give the container the ability to alter its items' width/height (and order) to best fill the available space (mostly to accommodate to all kind of display devices and screen sizes). A flex container expands items to fill available free space, or shrinks them to prevent overflow.

Most importantly, the flexbox layout is direction-agnostic as opposed to the regular layouts (block which is vertically-based and inline which is horizontally-based). While those work well for pages, they lack flexibility (no pun intended) to support large or complex applications (especially when it comes to orientation changing, resizing, stretching, shrinking, etc.).

But nevertheless, here we are, over a decade later, and there’s still no reasonable solution for this “problem” – at least one that works a across a wide range of browsers. But the chances are good that Flexbox (or “Flexible Box Layout Module” as the W3C likes to call it) is the next big thing. But be warned: there’s also an older version of Flexbox from 2009, which has pretty decent support, but was dismissed by the W3C late 2011 in favor of a more catchy syntax.

Flexbox Bar Navigation Demo

This is a pretty simple layout thing that could be accomplished loads of different ways. List items as inline-block probably makes the most sense in general.

They show just the code that's needed to make the demos work in a spec-compliant browser. Some browsers do not fully comply with the latest version of the spec, so sadly, a few workarounds were necessary. Workarounds for non-compliant browsers are not shown in the code samples, but if you're curious about those implementation details, you can check out the source files. Each demo links to its source, and all browser-specific workarounds are well-documented, so don't be afraid to take a look.
