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.

View demo Download source In this tutorial I’m going to explain how to achieve an interesting 3D opening type effect with CSS based on the one I previously created.

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. Auto–prefixing – Scott Riley Vendor prefixes are, if you swing that way, a useful part of CSS. Some people hate them but those people probably still use IDs in their CSS and think BEM is a porn genre. What isn’t great about vendor prefixes is that they’re experimental, temporary by nature, and are often misused by lazy developers. That’s not a fabrication, I’ve seen some git repos that’d make your nipples invert. If they aren’t already, you freak. As with any experimental technology, care needs to be used with vendor prefixes.

Introduction to the CSS box model Summary In a document, each element is represented as a rectangular box. Determining the size, properties — like its color, background, borders aspect — and the position of these boxes is the goal of the rendering engine. Tetris & The Power Of CSS To be really good at CSS, you have to learn CSS. I know this sounds like a tautology but I've become aware of a peculiar attitude that preprocessors such as SASS are somehow successors to CSS.

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.

Flexbox 2012 — W3C Candidate Recommendation, September 2012 Opera 12.1+, Firefox 22+.

Understanding SVG Coordinate Systems & Transformations (Part 1) – The viewpor... SVG elements aren't governed by a CSS box model like HTML elements are. This makes positioning and transforming these elements trickier and may seem—at first glance—less intuitive. However, once you understand how SVG coordinate systems and transformations work, manipulating SVGs becomes a lot easier and makes a lot more sense. In this article we're going to go over three of the most important SVG attributes that control SVG coordinate systems: viewport, viewBox, and preserveAspectRatio. This is the first in a series of three articles covering the topic of coordinate systems and transformations in SVG.

Divide html page in 4 equal rectangles - HTML / CSS Chris, thanks a lot for your helpful response! Works on Netscape 7.1 and (sort of) IE 6. The latter puts a thin vertical bar down the center of the screen. This may be the '3 pixel' problem I've read about (and which you can search for). I tried it in IE6 and Firefox.
