Flexbox vs CSS Grid (in 10 seconds)

The difference between Flexbox and CSS Grid in 10 seconds

You need to master both Flexbox and CSS Grid in order to professionally build modern websites & web apps. If you haven't mastered both of them yet, I highly recommend going through my CSS Course.

CSS Grid is a 2-step process. Step 1: create a grid (consisting of columns and rows). Step 2: place grid-items somewhere on that grid.

Flexbox works differently. You pick a direction with Flexbox: either horizontal (row) or vertical (column). Flex-items are then laid out along that direction. The default is horizontal (row).

Because you specify 2 axes in CSS Grid (you use both rows and columns in constructing the grid), CSS Grid is a 'two-dimensional' system.

With Flexbox you specify 1 direction, so it's a 'one-dimensional' system.

That's it, really.

By the way, I think CSS is the 'bottleneck' to most websites & web apps. I believe it's the highest-ROI skill you can master.

Before I mastered CSS, I lost a ton of time & energy fiddling around with CSS.

I was learning about advanced JavaScript topics when I couldn't even implement basic layouts in CSS...

So I created a CSS course to help you avoid the same mistake. Check it out here if you're interested.
