re: Grid vs. Flex: A Tale of a "Simple" Promo Space VIEW POST


I like it a lot, but I'm having an immense flashback to doing table based layouts right now. I can't help it.


It can definitely feel like that!

The big thing to think about is that table-based layouts were highly dependent on markup and the "containers" of the

nesting. So in a lot of ways it's actually closer to the mental model of flex and floats :D

Grid gives us sibling html and no nesting. Spanning elements on top of those inner margins is really nice break from how tables would have been too ;)

A lot of the outward mental model feels a bit like tables, but the inner workings are really nice
