What are the best practices for website/web app layouting ???

I am struggling from past few weeks to determine the layout of my web app. Do you have any suggestions for layouting. Like where to start? Trying to learn Material UI but css seems far superior tbh. I don't know what are the base parameters of layout. Like where to use absolute units and where to use fluid units. How to make pages concise and consistent all the time.

Any suggestion, cheats, resources would be appreciated.

Test early and test often. Test on small screens and test on large screens. Content is king. Think about how you want your page content to be presented on different size screens, and construct your CSS to responsively adjust to meet those presentation requirements. The layout rules and units you need will emerge from that process.
