Here we are at issue 200 of CSS Layout News. Every Tuesday for 200 issues I've managed to find something to share, thanks to all the good folk out there writing articles or doing interesting things with CSS! It seems fitting that we do actually have a lot of news this time, with subgrid landing in Firefox Nightly, and LayoutNG rolling out in Chrome.
Spring conference season rolls on. I am just back from Codegarden, my slides and resources are here. This week I head to CSSConf EU in Berlin, and then onto Toronto for the CSS Working Group meeting.
I mentioned my upcoming public workshops last time and a number of people asked whether I would do one in the UK soon. Given that I'm based in the UK, it is odd that I very rarely seem to speak or workshop here! If you would be interested, please fill in this form just so I can get an idea of the locations that most people would be happy getting to.
subgrid value of
grid-template-rows is now in Firefox Nightly. Download a copy of Nightly and you can take a look at the examples listed in this post.
LayouNG is a new layout engine for Chromium, and it will begin to be rolled out in Chrome 76. The initial stage will be for inline and block layout.
You might find the post CSS Grid on LayoutNG interesting.
News that isn't CSS, but given we need some HTML to use CSS this is an interesting development to be aware of. W3C and the WHATWG have just signed an agreement to collaborate on the development of a single version of the HTML and DOM specifications. You can read the details of how this will work in the blog post.
If you had used the legacy scroll snap spec which was implemented in Firefox, this is being dropped with the next version of Firefox (68) which implements the updated specification.
