CSS Grid System

Hello all, At my work are moving away from bootstrap (flexbox) in favor of CSS grid system. I know there is a lite basic support in PG on this technology mainly of some input fields . Do you think PG will fully suport this new technology with visual tools any time soon?

Hi there, this isn’t an answer for you sorry but a question :slight_smile:
Why are they doing that then? what are the list of reasons and how much easier/more trouble is it making things to move away. Or is it better for future proofing and maintenance do they think.

mmm… that was a few questions. sorry

I don’t know why are they doing this. I am just a junior designer in there. what I have understood so far is that this new css grid is easier to implement with less code and future prove… the technical detail i don’t know. It sucks becouse i was learning the logic behind flexbox system and now they want to go with css grid system… whaterver… Thanks

ah cheers for that.
and don’t worry, keep learning Flexbox too!

They both work differerently and can be used together.

ie , one works like everything is on long line - no wrapping of elements so good for formatting one line/row at a time,
the other treats the layout as a …grid! both Rows And Columns, at the same time.

they can be combined together to achieve great things :slight_smile:


and maybe some fun stuff/courses here too :slight_smile:

oh and of course, talking about fun, how on earth could I forget…

anyway, back to to your question… CSS GRID support in Pinegrow…?

Hey thank you very much for your time to write down that valuable info above. I will look at them for sure. I just started an udemy course on css grid system and yes it looks very powerful.
Hope PG will support this new css feature.
Thanks again

First it was media queries and floats, then it was CSS Flex Box. Now Flex box is out of favor and CSS Grid is the new guy. CSS Grid seems simpler but truthfully I haven’t used it yet.
I guess this is is enought browser support to start using it, right?

Yes, visual tools for CSS Grid are coming to PG soon. In my experience so far, CSS grid is really a game changer for designing web layouts. That said, flexbox is here to stay as well. Grid + Flex are a powerful and complementing combination. Grid defines the layout and Flex defines how elements stack within that layout.


WOW, that looks amazing! yes yes, Grid + Flex! win-win

Holy cow.

That’s taking things to the next level really.
That alone would make Pinegrow appealing to those just trying to get to grips with CSS layouts, grid etc.
Well done.

Good thing @red-rosefields asked about it now… pity it kind of bust your trumpet playing fanfare of a surprise delivery of it though, but awesome stuff.
Well done :slight_smile:

I tend to be wary of software by CoffeeCup as they love to get you hooked on something, spending sometimes hundreds of dollars only to never give you all the features and fixes they promise along the way. Then instead of doing the major upgrades and updates the software you purchased needs, they just create a new piece of software to take it’s place making you pay once again for something they promised to add/fix in the software they already had going. No win situation there as far as I’m concerned. Very unlike Pinegrow and a few others that I use now that are much more customer conscientious.

oh thanks for that @eiwd, good to know. I just remember their name from a long time ago in my windows day and the free css tool looks fine. Good to know their approach though.

I do seem to remember trying out their responsive web site builder or whatever it was before.
much like you described.

I went with pinegrow :slight_smile:

No worries @schpengle, it’s a free tool and I’m sure it can be used for learning so it’s all good. Just warning for people actually thinking to spend money there. :slight_smile:

Wow. With this new addition, it would seem like multi-monitor support would be more beneficial than ever. More room to spread out the ever-growing number of palates and controls in Pinegrow. (hint, hint)

I once bought their responsive website builder by mistake and asked immediately for a refund. Nope. Never got that. While I was an existing customer btw, because I bought also their form builder before. That form builder is good, but has some promotion links inside which I don’t like and have to remove every time.
And for the website builder case: I got Pinegrow and never looked back.
Well … just adding some milk to the coffee cup here, in case it could help someone.
