CSS Scroll Snap Candidate Rec Published

By Tab Atkins Jr. November 2, 2016 (Permalink)
Categories: Uncategorized

The CSS Working Group has published a Candidate Recommendation of CSS Scroll Snap. This module contains features to control panning and scrolling behavior with “snap positions”, to which the UA is biased to land after a scroll operation.

We expect some minor adjustments to be made to the module as we gather
implementation experience in the CR cycle, however the module should be
mostly stable now. Significant changes since the last Working Draft are listed in the Changes section and include renaming ‘scroll-snap-padding’ to ‘scroll-padding’ and expanding
its application to exclude the scroll padding area in other forms of scroll
position calculations, such as scrolling to a :target or using PageUp/Down
operations. (See https://www.w3.org/TR/css-scroll-snap-1/#scroll-padding for details.)

Please send feedback by filing an issue in GitHub (preferable) with the spec code ([css-scroll-snap]) and your comment topic in the subject line. (Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment.)

CSS Grid Candidate Rec Published

Categories: publications

The CSS Working Group has published a Candidate Recommendation of CSS Grid. Grid defines a new type of layout manager, the grid, which makes it extremely easy to specify complex, responsive 2-dimensional layouts for a page or sub-component of the page.

This spec is the culmination of years of design. In 2005, Bert Bos published the first draft of Advanced Layout, containing the proto-forms of what would eventually become Grid and Flexbox (along with tabbed layout, which never became a thing). While this received occasional updates, the Grid part didn’t receive much implementor interest until 2011, when editors from Microsoft published the first draft of Grid Layout. This attracted the attention of fantasai and Tab, who’d always liked the very similar Template Layout proposal from Bert’s draft, and they gradually merged the two proposals into the Grid spec now being published. Yay for collaboration!

We expect some minor adjustments to be made to the module as we gather
implementation experience in the CR cycle, however the module should be
mostly stable now. Changes since the last Working Draft are listed in the Changes section.

Please send feedback by filing an issue in GitHub (preferable) with the spec code ([css-grid]) and your comment topic in the subject line. (Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment.)
