Expandable sections within a CSS Grid (Quickview)

Kev Bonnett, 15 Oct 2021, CSS-Tricks

Kev Bonett gives an excellent example of how to style expandable CSS Grid sections with only some lines of CSS. Check out his CSS-Tricks article. Kev has a CodePen to play with it. His idea is:

.grid {
/*Trick 1:
have a grid with columns
that are arranged automatically
within the available space*/

display: grid;
gap: 1rem;
grid-template-columns: repeat(auto-fit, 20rem);

/*Trick 3:
fill the gaps*/

grid-auto-flow: dense;
}

.fullwidth {
/*Trick 2:
have a full width card
start in column 1,
and span every column up to the last one*/

grid-column: 1 / -1;
}
