With support for the latest version of the CSS Grid Layout spec in Chrome, I thought it a good time to revisit how my favourite CSS module is getting along.
Our product is seeing an increasing number of support requests from end clients who have lost touch with their designer but don’t have access to the third party software and services used on their site.
Thinking about how we, working on the web, rarely get those moments where we can say, “this is done, this is good.”
I am putting my new site live today – designed by Laura Kalbag. This post talks about finally letting go of the need to design my own site.
While we continue to let clients dictate how website content is edited, we will not see the back of the so-called WYSIWYG editor. My thoughts after reading Mark Boulton’s post on the subject.
Having discussed Grid Layout with lots of people at Front Trends last week, I mentioned to a few people I would write up some thoughts about named grid lines and areas and how they are described in the current Working Draft.
Towards the end of last year I did some research into the proposed CSS Grid Layout module for my book CSS3 Layout Modules for Five Simple Steps and also an article for 24 Ways. Both of these were heavily based on the Internet Explorer 10 implementation, as that was (and is) the only real implementation of Grid so far. However the spec has changed significantly and this post is really just my notes on what has changed.
