Grid enough

I just started working with CSS grid. I’m still figuring some things out but excited by the possibilities it opens up.

However, I’m a bit annoyed with myself for not getting onboard sooner. I ignored grid partly out out of tool and framework fatigue, and partly because I thought that what I had was good enough.

To keep things in perspective, here are some other things I did as a young webmaster that I thought were good enough.

  • I coded in Notepad
  • I laid out pages with <table> tags
  • I added transparent spacer.gif images to force-size those tables
  • I put iframes inside of table cells just to display content
  • I designed websites as single images and sliced them up
  • I used image maps for navigation

If I can get from tables to floats to flexbox, I can get from flexbox to grid.
