It certainly feels as if we are heading into the final stretch before Grid Layout is ready for production use, this is reflected by the increase in tutorials and information on the subject. There are some longer pieces in this email. If you are interested in the technical side of CSS in browsers you will enjoy the post documenting Grid Layout discussion at the Web Engines Hackfest.
For anyone who has jumped on the pattern library bandwagon and is now wondering how to maintain use and adoption of the pattern library in ongoing workflow, check out Vitaly's piece from Smashing Magazine.
In the next three weeks I'll be at CSS Dev Conf in San Antonio, All Things Open in Raleigh and An Event Apart in San Francisco. Come say hello if you are at any of those events.
Interesting post getting into the weeds of Grid Layout browser implementation. If that doesn't interest you then this quote might,
"... we discussed about the current state of CSS Grid Layout implementation in the different engines. The implementation is almost complete in most of the main engines. Thanks to the collaboration between Igalia and Bloomberg we can confirm that WebKit and Blink’s implementations are almost completed. We have been evaluating Mozilla’s Gecko implementation of Grid and we verified it’s in a similar status. We talked about the recent news from TPAC, which Manuel Rego attended, about the CSS Grid Layout specification becoming Candidate Recommendation. Because of all these reasons, we have agreed with Christian that it’d be good to send the Blink intent-to-ship request as soon as possible; in case it’s accepted, it could be enabled by default in the next Chrome release."
