Building a responsive grid with CSS Grid

If you haven’t messed with it, yet…

CSS Grid is pretty handy.

Take this HTML, for example:

<div class="wrapper">
    <div class="box">1</div>
    <div class="box">2</div>
    <div class="box">3</div>
</div>

We can easily create a grid like this:

.wrapper {
    display: grid;
    grid-template-columns: 100px 100px 100px;
    grid-gap: 10px;
}

That’ll give you a grid that looks something like this:

2018-09-29_0856

And, you can do even more complex layouts like this:​​​​

2018-09-29_0859

With just a few lines of code.

Again, pretty handy.

Anyway, one of the things I immediately wanted to do was build a Bootstrap-like grid system using CSS Grid. So, I did… and I put it into its own CSS file that I just drag and drop into my different projects.

Would you like that code for yourself?

Well, it’s inside my NEW web design course over on SkillShare. There’s a full lesson on HOW to build the grid if you want to build your own AND, you get access to the full source code I used, so you’ll also get the exact grid I built.

And, of course, there’s a ton more you’ll learn in the course…

Like submitting forms via AJAX.

Building a rotating mobile menu with CSS transitions.

Sending emails with PHP

And, more.

Anyway, link to get the course at NO cost is here: https://skl.sh/2xM6Y3l

Enjoy!

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

John is one of the best instructors I have come across, I learned a lot from his online tutorials.

Lewis Howes

John is amazing at building membership sites. He converted one of my sites over from it’s existing (hardly working) platform over to the clean and simple to use WishList membership platform. I highly recommend using John and WishList for any of your membership site needs.

Sukh Plaha

John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!

Bob Patterson

Not only is John a very talented programmer and developer, he is also an excellent communicator. He has a talent for taking complex subjects and communicating them in terms that anyone can understand. This is a rare combination. This ability has enabled me to take my skills and knowledge to the next level. Thank you John for for all that you do.

On the Freelancing on Upwork course: “This is by far the best course i have watched on Skillshare!! Thank you so much.”

Ray Edwards

I recommend John every chance I get. If every person I worked with were as committed to excellence, punctuality, value, and unquestionable integrity… the world would be a better place. Highest recommendation.
