CSS Flexbox Level 1 Revision 1 Candidate Recommendation

By fantasai March 2, 2016 (Permalink)
Categories: publications

The CSS Working Group has published an updated Candidate Recommendation of CSS Flexible Box Layout Module Level 1. Flexbox is a new layout model for CSS. The contents of a flex container can be laid out in any direction, can be reordered, can be aligned and justified horizontally and vertically within their container, and can “flex” their sizes and positions to respond to the available space.

This update closes the “Proposed Edited Candiate Recommendation” cycle of LCWDs, and puts Flexbox into the new W3C Process at the Candidate Recommendation level. A side-effect of this process has been to show the slowing rate of issues filed against Flexbox as the spec has matured (which allowed us to hit zero issues long enough to re-transition to CR).

Exact diff-marked changes, and their justifications, for the entire Candidate Recommendation revision cycle (since the original CR publication in 2012) are available in the changes section. A Disposition of Comments resulting in the latest set of changes (since the May 2015 publication) is also available.

As always, please send feedback to the (archived) public mailing list www-style@w3.org with the spec code ([css-flexbox]) and your comment topic in the subject line. (Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment.)

Lots of thanks to the implementers who have been working with the spec, and with us, to improve the state of the spec together with their implementations. This module has not been easy to produce, and we are very grateful for their hard work, intelligence, and diligence in helping us build a new layout system for the Web!

(Note also that this spec is the first spec to be published with the new W3C specification style sheets. If you have comments on the new style, please file them at tr-design on GitHub or send them to spec-prod@w3.org or send them otherwise to fantasai.)

Grid Layout Spec Workshops

By fantasai January 10, 2016 (Permalink)
Categories: general

Since the Flexbox workshops seemed to be helpful, fantasai is planning to organize a few Grid Layout spec workshops. There will be one in SF this month; add your availability to the Doodle if you’re interested. NYC and/or Philadelphia next month probably. And if neither of those work, you can get a group together to run one yourself—there are instructions for running a CSS spec workshop that anyone can organize.
