Flexible Box Layout Module

Flexible Box Layout Module
Abstract The specification describes a CSS box model optimized for user interface design. In the flex layout model, the children of a flex container can be laid out in any direction, and can “flex” their sizes, either growing to fill unused space or shrinking to avoid overflowing the parent. Both horizontal and vertical alignment of the children can be easily manipulated. Nesting of these boxes (horizontal inside vertical, or vertical inside horizontal) can be used to build layouts in two dimensions. CSS is a language for describing the rendering of structured documents (such as HTML and XML) on screen, on paper, in speech, etc. Status of this document This section describes the status of this document at the time of its publication.

The CSS 3 Flexible Box Model This article about the Flexible Box Layout was written by Jérémie Patonnier, French open Web enthusiast. The flexible box model CSS 3 introduces a brand new box model in addition of the traditional box model from CSS 1 and 2. The flexible box model determines the way boxes are distributed inside other boxes and the way they share the available space. You can see the specification here. CSS Grid Template Layout Module Abstract Above: a typical Web page. Below: the underlying grid template. CSS is a simple, declarative language for creating style sheets that specify the rendering of HTML and other structured documents. 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"). 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.).

A Guide to Mobile Emulators In a previous article, I put forward a three-point plan for testing mobile Web sites. One of the points involved the use of emulators for first-pass device testing. This article concentrates on configuring emulators for mobile site testing (it also highlights emulators that can be used to test mobile applications too). It outlines the different types of emulator available, the best ones to use, and the various ways in which they can be used. For the uninitiated, an emulator is a software program that aims to replicate the functions of a specific piece of hardware or software.

CSS railroad diagrams So next step after the sexy CSS lexer is parsing. But first - railroad diagrams to help visualize how/when the tokens make sense forming valid CSS code. Below is what I have so far. It includes pretty much everything except selectors. Selectors are getting increasingly complex, come to think of it. There are probably mistakes in these diagrams, so I'll be happy to see any cases where they don't work properly.
