I’ll get into the inner workings of Flexbox while you learn to build the music app layout. You’ll also get a feel for the role Flexbox plays in responsive web design, too. I’m excited to show you all this. But before you get started building user interfaces, I’m going to walk you through some drills, first. This may seem boring, but it’s all part of the process of getting you adept at Flexbox. Let’s get started. Introduction CSS has evolved a lot over the past few years. Crafting Intelligent page layouts with CSS seemed to have persisted for too long, and this got many of us writing hacky CSS. We always had to deal with floats, table display hacks, and the consequences they brought. It seems like our prayers as designers and front-end developers have finally been heard. What The Flexbox?! — A simple 20 video course that will help you master CSS Flexbox.

Oui, Flexbox est buggué – La Tête dans le Flux

Bah non, sans surprise, Flexbox est buggué. Comme tous les autres. Ce n’est pas la faute à Flexbox hein, mais celle des navigateurs… même si au fond ça ne change pas grand chose pour nous. Bref, aujourd’hui encore je viens de tomber sur un cas de figure où l’on se rend compte avec douleur que certaines parties des spécifications ne sont pas interprétées à l’identique par l’ensemble des navigateurs modernes. Ici, il s’agit d’une combinaison de parent en flex-direction: column et d’enfants en flex:1. Jugez vous-mêmes : Ceci dit, buggué ou non, Flexbox demeure le plus stable des modes de positionnement actuels, sachant que Float compte parmi le plus buggué de tous les positionnements (qui se souvient de Positioniseverything qui recensait pas moins de 20 bugs de Float uniquement sur IE ?)

Using Flexbox: Mixing Old and New for the Best Browser Support

The syntax has changed quite a bit over the past few years, hence the "Old" and "New" syntax. But if we weave together the old, new, and in-between syntaxes, we can get decent browser support. Especially for a simple and probably the most common use case: order-controlled grids The HTML. Flexbox — Fast Track to Layout Nirvana? Introduction HTML and CSS is a great content delivery mechanism in many ways — it is easy to learn, flexible and powerful.

Flexbox — Fast Track to Layout Nirvana?

One thing however that it has never excelled at is complex layouts. If you want to create a simple typographic essay layout with a floated image or two, then fine, but producing complicated multi column layouts has always been fiddly and hackish, and frustrating to get working consistently and precisely across browsers. We usually tend to abuse floats and other constructs for this purpose, and bugs and rendering differences can really spoil your fun. Flexbox Cheatsheet Cheatsheet. While I am no stranger to the magic of Flexbox, I find that I am not using it very often just yet.

Flexbox Cheatsheet Cheatsheet

As a result I end up pausing and referring back to this post at CSS-Tricks whenever an opportunity to utilize its powers presents itself. I set out to create a quick visual to summarize Flexbox when I run into these moments of pause in the future. I like to think of it as a little diagram (flow chart? Decision tree-ish thing?) That is a cheatsheet...based on cheatsheets. Anyway, I thought I would share it just in case others may find such a resource beneficial as well. If you would prefer to have this guy as a PDF you can grab that here. 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.). Philipwalton/flexbugs: A community-curated list of flexbox issues and cross-browser workarounds for them. Sans titre. Flexbox transitions You can animate the change almost any property of flexbox, bar a few, and have them transition.

sans titre

Since animating layout properties has never been a big priority of mine, most of these animations feel to be a little redundant. The one thing I would love to animate is inserts and removes. A transition is not enough to detect the addition or removal of an item, so adding a transition and then inserting will only give you a jarring jolt as the action takes place. To make inserts and removes less jarring you need to make use of transitionStart/transitionEnd or animationStart/animationEnd javascript events to be able make the action smoother.

I dealt with the basics of Flexbox in my article Flexbox: fast track to layout nirvana? In this article I will go a bit further, looking at a more advanced example, and using Modernizr to serve different styles to browsers with differing levels of Flexbox support, providing the best level of cross browser support currently available.

Introducing the example The example I have built for this article looks like Figure 1: This has multiple levels of Flexboxes contained within it.

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. The vendor prefixing and translating of current flex properties to their legacy equivalents is all handled by autoprefixer. The class naming convention used in the code samples and source files is taken from SUIT CSS, which is based on BEM methodologies.

CSS Flexible Box Layout Module Level 1. Conformance requirements are expressed with a combination of descriptive assertions and RFC 2119 terminology. The key words “MUST”, “MUST NOT”, “REQUIRED”, “SHALL”, “SHALL NOT”, “SHOULD”, “SHOULD NOT”, “RECOMMENDED”, “MAY”, and “OPTIONAL” in the normative parts of this document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119.
