Modern web layouts with CSS Flexbox and CSS Grid

CSS techniques such as Flexbox and Grid allow to create high-performance websites without a framework

There are several ways to create modern and responsive web layouts. Templates and themes are mostly implemented with UIkit, Bootstrap or Foundation, because it seems simple and easy at first sight.

Even without a framework, responsive websites can be implemented with acceptable effort. Without a framework, significantly faster loading times can be achieved, which leads to a longer dwell time of the visitor on the website. Another advantage is that Google places fast websites better.

The necessary used techniques for responsive websites I have presented in this talk at the JoomlaDay 2019. Especially the techniques CSS Flexbox and CSS Grid are discussed.

The following points will be covered in the lecture on web layouts:

  • Differences between Flexbox and Grid
  • responsive column layout with image and text
  • CSS Padding Bottom Trick

zum Schwerpunkt CSS Flexbox

  • Alignment of elements with CSS Flexbox
  • typical examples with CSS Flexbox
  • CSS Flexbox Browser Debugging
  • Calculation of the size of the child elements of CSS Flexbox

and focus on CSS Grid:

  • Grid alignment of the elements
  • Grid Template Areas
  • Grid auto-fill und auto-fit
  • CSS Subgrid
  • Implicit und Explicit Grid

CSS Grid and Flexbox allow fast loading times of the website, since no framework for the website layout is needed. The advantages like higher conversion rate and more individual layouts support this implementation.
