Flexbox

14 Jul 2016

Quick one on flexbox. Long story short - it’s awesome!

I prescribe a few minutes on an online tutorial/game and you can wave farewell to your grid layout woes. I had been aware of flexbox for some time, but believed it was poorly supported.

Turns out that flexbox is supported by all modern browsers with only the usual suspects (IE8/9) falling short. But for this site – I don’t expect (or welcome) any IE8 users…sorry!

I’ve already implemented it on my about page, for the skills icons.

So go forth, use flexbox and cast aside the shackles of inline-block and display table.
