Mar 15, 2018  How we approach layout on the web is changing, and at the forefront of that change is CSS Grid Layout. This quick start CSS grid tutorial will skip the details and nuances, instead helping you get stuck in, right now. CSS Grid Layout (known to its friends as “Grid”) has come on leaps and bounds. Fixed Background Attachment Note: It's good practice to adding fixed background attachment to Row rather than column. By doing so you can add some extra effect to Column such as transparent bac. CoffeeCup Software is an American computer software development company based in Atlanta, Georgia, United States founded in 1996. The name comes from the company's origins in an internet cafe owned by its founder. Stuff we made to help you learn Grid. We are pumped about CSS Grid and hope so are you. To help everybody transition into this new layout technique we created a nifty app with visual grid editor that you can try for free.

Configuring grid tracks

Grid columns and rows — grid tracks — are added using the respective + buttons. To configure row or column settings, simply click on the grey header. Then widths and heights can be specified using the input and unit chooser which includes the new awesome fr unit. A single value or MinMax values (really handy!) can be selected with the height (rows) or width (columns) toggle.

There are also manage controls that make it easy to duplicate rows and columns or move them into different positions. If you have a large screen and hit the Apply to Canvas button on the low left, you will see all elements in the grid container reposition accordingly.

Defining default placement behavior

This can be influenced through the controls in the Grid Settings section. By default grid-items are automatically filling the cells on a row by row basis. This auto placement algorithm can be influenced with the Auto Flow property available through the corresponding dropdown in this section. Some explanation on how the dense keyword works will be added to the Grid Guide soon.

The Justify and Align properties work very similar to how flexbox aligns items. They determine where the items are placed in a grid area along the column (block) and row (inline) axis.

Rows and columns that are automatically created normally grow and shrink to accommodate the content they hold. Using the Auto controls a default size can be specified for that situation.

Gutters can be specified with the Gap controls. If you are like me and have tried to do this in Flexbox layouts you will just love the way it works here!

Creating grid areas

Grid cells can be named. When adjacent cells have the same name grid areas are created. Items can be placed by simply specifying what area they belong to. A very semantic and convenient way of managing a layout!

Click on a cell to opens up a text input. The name can be entered directly in the cell or in the corresponding control area on the right (see below).

Using the control pane you can also specify how far an area needs to stretch, what column or row it starts and where it ends. Just don't forget to hit the Apply button when you’re done.

To place an item in an area, just select the element and enter the area name in the Grid and Flexbox Layout section on the Styles pane.

And if you are just like me and suffering from a bad memory when designing, the auto-suggest is a great help!
