A Grid in CSS’s Future

Screen Shot of CSS Grid Layout blogpost

Today we’re talking CSS layouts—bleeding edge version. Specifically CSS Grid Layout. Grids are one of the best tools for designers to organize content beautifully and give visitors meaningful context; but implementing them in CSS is cumbersome at best. That’ll change in the future though.

Patrick Brosset shares in a blogpost some of the cool things CSS Grid Layout will do and shares some videos of talks about it. It’ll save a lot of unnecessary HTML and CSS code and reduce the need to rearrange its markup.

Unfortunately CanIUse.com says 8.57% browsers support CSS Grid Layout at the time of this post’s publication. So for now flexbox is a great alternative to it (Scotch.io has a good flexbox intro). That said, it’s good to see what’s coming down the pipeline for CSS.
