CSS Flexbox is a tool that you can use to make the elements on your website look the way you want them to. It helps you arrange elements in a row or a column and make them look nice and organized.
Here are some basic concepts you need to know about Flexbox:
- Flex container: A flex container is an element that holds other elements and helps you control how they look. To make an element a flex container, you can use the
display: flexproperty in your CSS.
- Flex item: A flex item is an element that is inside a flex container. You can use Flexbox to control how flex items look and behave.
- Flex direction: Flexbox allows you to arrange flex items in a row or a column. You can use the
flex-directionproperty to specify the direction in which you want to lay out your flex items. For example, you can use
flex-direction: rowto lay out your flex items horizontally, or
flex-direction: columnto lay out your flex items vertically.
- Flex wrap: Flexbox also allows you to specify whether you want your flex items to wrap onto a new line when they don't fit in a single line. You can use the
flex-wrapproperty to specify whether you want your flex items to wrap or not.
- Flex justify-content: Flexbox allows you to align your flex items along the main axis (horizontally or vertically, depending on the flex direction). You can use the
justify-contentproperty to specify how you want to align your flex items. For example, you can use
justify-content: centerto center your flex items, or
justify-content: space-betweento distribute them evenly.
- Flex align-items: Flexbox also allows you to align your flex items along the cross axis (perpendicular to the main axis). You can use the
align-itemsproperty to specify how you want to align your flex items. For example, you can use
align-items: centerto center your flex items, or
align-items: stretchto make them take up the full height of the flex container.
