3:27 - CSS Grid Level 2 and subgrid

  • CSS subgrid will allow you to place grid-items’ children along the same lines at the parent grid

5:40 - How it works - Why do we need it? What problem do we have right now?

  1. Create your grid as normal - you can create columns, rows, named lines, etc.
  2. Your grid-item will also be display grid - this is nothing new - just regular nesting of grid
  3. The magic comes in when you want to define the rows and or columns of the sub-item. You can inherit the parent item’s grid-rows / columns by simply saying display: subgrid
