CSS Grid

The CSS Grid Layout Module offers a grid-based layout system, with rows and columns, making it easier to design web pages without having to use floats and positioning.

Grid

Display Property:

An HTML element becomes a grid container when its display property is set to grid or inline-grid.

CSS Code:

.grid-container {
  display: grid;
}

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

All direct children of the grid container automatically become grid items. The vertical lines of grid items are called columns while the horizontal lines of grid items are called rows. The spaces between each column/row are called gaps. The grid-column-gap property sets the gap between the columns:

CSS Code:

.grid-container {
  display: grid;
  grid-column-gap: 50px;
}

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

The grid-row-gap property sets the gap between the rows:

CSS Code:

.grid-container {
  display: grid;
  grid-row-gap: 50px;
}

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

The grid-gap property can also be used to set both the row gap and the column gap in one value.

CSS Code:

.grid-container {
  display: grid;
  grid-gap: 50px;
}

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

The lines between columns are called column lines. The lines between rows are called row lines.
