A Complete Guide to Grid

CSS Grid Layout is the most powerful layout system available in CSS. It is a 2-dimensional system, meaning it can handle both columns and rows, unlike flexbox which is largely a 1-dimensional system. You work with Grid Layout by applying CSS rules both to a parent element (which becomes the Grid Container) and to that elements children (which become Grid Items). This article was ported over from Chris House's guide, by Chris himself, who is keeping both up-to-date. CSS Grid Layout (aka "Grid"), is a two-dimensional grid-based layout system that aims to do nothing less than completely change the way we design grid-based user interfaces. CSS has always been used to lay out our web pages, but it's never done a very good job of it. There are two primary things that inspired me to create this guide. My intention with this guide is to present the Grid concepts as they exist in the very latest version of the specification. Firefox 52+ supports CSS Grid out of the box. Desktop Mobile / Tablet grid

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.

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.).

What is CSS Grid Layout? Grid gives us some new terminology along with additional CSS Properties and values. In this section I’ll explain with some basic examples the terminology of Grid Layout. Basic Concepts Grid Layout gives us a method of creating grid structures that are described in CSS and not in HTML. It helps us to create layouts that can be redefined using Media Queries and adapt to different contexts. 15 Examples of Great Mobile Website Design Now more than ever, businesses are focusing on creating delightful mobile website experiences. After all, 80% of Internet users are using smartphones to search online. What's more, marketers are gearing up for a big change Google plans to make to their algorithm starting on April 21, 2015. Google wrote in their official blog that they will be "expanding our use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal," and their update should have a significant effect on marketers. When Google makes this change, it will have a bigger impact than Panda or Penguin. To put that in context, their Panda update impacted only about 12% of queries, and Penguin affected about 4% of mobile and desktop queries.

CSS Grid VS Flexbox: A Practical Comparison Danny Markov Not too long ago, the layout for all HTML pages was done via tables, floats, and other CSS properties that were not well suited for styling complex web pages. Then came flexbox – a layout mode that was specifically designed for creating robust responsive pages. Flexbox made it easy to properly align elements and their content, and is now the preferred CSS system of most web developers. Now we have a new contender for the best-system-to-build-html-layouts trophy (trophy title is a work in progress). It is the mighty CSS Grid, and by the end of this month, it will be available natively in Firefox 52 and Chrome 57, with other browsers (hopefully) following soon.

Well, It’s not a secret – there is a certain path you can follow along and be point of reference by yourself. You just need to embrace this certain path.

How to build a responsive grid system One of the best complement for a custom web design is a custom-made responsive grid system. You can customize everything you need, including the number of columns, the size of columns and gutters and even the breakpoints you change your layouts at. Unfortunately, many people don’t even try building custom grids for their web designs because they lack the knowledge and confidence to build one.
