Flexy Boxes — CSS flexbox playground and code generation tool Flexbox browser support Three versions of the flexbox spec – each with different syntax – have been implemented in browsers. The two 2012 specs are roughly equivilant in terms of features, differing mainly in syntax. The earlier 2009 spec is less comprehensive though covers a lot of the same ground. Flexbox 2012 — W3C Candidate Recommendation, September 2012 Opera 12.1+, Firefox 22+.
YUI Compressor According to Yahoo!'s Exceptional Performance Team, 40% to 60% of Yahoo!'s users have an empty cache experience and about 20% of all page views are done with an empty cache (see this article by Tenni Theurer on the YUIBlog for more information on browser cache usage). This fact outlines the importance of keeping web pages as lightweight as possible. Improving the engineering design of a page or a web application usually yields the biggest savings and that should always be a primary strategy.
Advanced Cross-Browser Flexbox Introduction The CSS Flexible box module level 3 — or Flexbox for short — brings with it a lot of power and some very exciting possibilities for web development, allowing us to put together complex site layouts easily and rapidly, and dispensing with some of the illogical hacks and kludges that we’ve traditionally used. I dealt with the basics of Flexbox in my article Flexbox: fast track to layout nirvana? 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.

How to Use steps() in CSS Animations I am guessing that many of you have found steps() to be confusing when using it in CSS animations. I wasn’t sure how or why to use it at first and searching seems to produce two main examples: A typing demo by Lea Verou and an animated sprite sheet by Simurai. These examples are genius and really helped me begin to understand this special little timing function, but they are such prominent references that it was hard to imagine how to use steps() outside of the context of each demo.

Working with flexbox Flexible layouts. Equal height columns. Presentation independence from your HTML source order. These things haven't been so easy to achieve with CSS—until now. The flexible box layout, the new flexbox specification, makes creating any of these layouts easy, and much more.
It’s time to use Flexbox and here’s where to learn - Jayhan Loves Design & Japan After we said goodbye to the good old table layout, CSS float has been the go-to method when dealing with web layouts. By default, block elements are stacked from top to bottom, but with CSS float and some other useful properties, we designers are able to code the layout as according to our design. However CSS float has many shortcomings and until now there are still no easy way to achieve certain layout. Perhaps one of the most frustrating thing is how to make a block centered horizontally and vertically. Well certainly there are many solutions to it as explained on CSS-Tricks, but there are still a lot of conditions to meet.
Ratings Also known as: Rating an Object, Star Rating Tags: contextual tools, feedback, social Rating is an easy way for users to voice their opinion about a certain object. These objects can be physical products, services, or virtual items such as images, videos and articles.Users are invited to rate an object by showing a label (e.g., “Rate It!”) over clickable items (often stars) that light up when hovered over. The initial state should be empty.When the mouse cursor moves over these items, a tooltip will describe the rating at each point (e.g., “Good”). Solved by Flexbox — Cleaner, hack-free CSS All of the code samples on this site show how to solve a particular design problem with Flexbox. 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.
Using CSS flexible boxes - Web developer guide The CSS3 Flexible Box, or flexbox, is a layout mode providing for the arrangement of elements on a page such that the elements behave predictably when the page layout must accommodate different screen sizes and different display devices. For many applications, the flexible box model provides an improvement over the block model in that it does not use floats, nor do the flex container's margins collapse with the margins of its contents. Many designers will find the flexbox model easier to use. Child elements in a flexbox can be laid out in any direction and can have flexible dimensions to adapt to the display space. Positioning child elements is thus much easier, and complex layouts can be achieved more simply and with cleaner code, as the display order of the elements is independent of their order in the source code.
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. However, for readability, these words do not appear in all uppercase letters in this specification.
