10:00 CSS Grid Review
It’s been a week since we looked at and tried out CSS Grid. CSS Grid maybe a good solution to your layout ideas with the CSS Two Way project.
Let’s look at one of our previous codepens and come up with an improved layout using grid. In the process we’ll revisit the following key terminology:
- display: grid (you’ll need a container)
- grid-template-columns: (for setting number of columns)
- grid-template-rows (for setting rows)
- grid-gap (for setting the gap between the grid areas)
- fr (stands for fraction, can be used instead of percentage)
- minmax (for setting height min and max or width min and max)r (stands for fraction, can be used instead of percentage)
We’ll use the codepen we did about the Salamanders and the <aside> element – Remember to fork it first!
- Move the Aside to the other side.
- Add a Navbar with 4 links under the header that stretches the container
- Style the anchor tags

10:45 Flexible Sizing with Flex Basis Properties
Introduction – When a flex container is defined, flex items resize themselves automatically. But sometimes you may need to set a specific size to the flex items. When that is the case, we can use the flex property!
Fork my Codepen and we’ll play in the sandbox
Terminology to know:
- flex (which is shorthand for the 3 properties above)
Flex refers to the properties that apply to the elements in the container
Flex Basis: controls the size of an element before it is manipulated by other flexbox properties
Flex-grow: controls how an element will grow (or not) if there is additional space in a container.
The default is zero, items are not set to grow by default.
Setting the grow property to 1 or higher will override. Flex-grow: 1.
Flex-shrink: controls how an element will shrink if there is not additional space in a container.
The default is 1 – which means yes, shrink the content if there is not additional space.
Flex: is the shorthand recommended by the W3C to reduce redundancies.
default is: flex: 0, 1, auto
In this order: grow, shrink, auto
