A Complete Guide to Flexbox

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"). 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.).

Fear of failure: Part 2 – Total failure In my last post, Fear of Failure: Part 1, I discussed the sad epidemic of fear of failure that I find to be rampant in America and that I see frequently in the young ski racers with whom I work. I have discovered a new wrinkle to the fear-of-failure phenomenon that brings greater clarity to the problems that young racers face in our increasingly intense, result-oriented ski racing world. Let me begin by describing what I believe lies at the heart of fear of failure, namely that every bad race is perceived by racers as an attack on their value as a person. This statement is powerful and truly harmful. Moreover, this perception is entirely disconnected from reality; it’s simply not true.

CSS: Using Percent for Margin and Padding · For, Jason Putorti and I are refactoring the way we do CSS graphing to support positive and negative values, where the bars are all scaled using percentages, so the design can change without any re-engineering. Hopefully, Jason will write a guest article about this soon, but until then, this development inspired todays article. In our graphs, the negative bar needed to be offset by the height of the positive region, and initially we thought to use the margin-top style to apply this offset. However, when we applied the style, using percentages, the resulting offset was drastically less than expected.

Flexbox Cheatsheet display .parent { } A Visual Guide to CSS3 Flexbox Properties The Flexbox Layout officially called CSS Flexible Box Layout Module is new layout module in CSS3 made to improve the items align, directions and order in the container even when they are with dynamic or even unknown size. The prime characteristic of the flex container is the ability to modify the width or height of its children to fill the available space in the best possible way on different screen sizes. Many designers and developers find this flexbox layout easier to use, as positioning of the elements is simpler thus more complex layouts can be achieved with less code, leading to simpler development process. Flexbox layout algorithm is direction based unlike the block or inline layout which are vertically and horizontally based.
