Great article Stuart… resonates with me because of applying new CSS Grid layout to a large pre-existing grid system.

I’ve POC’d a similar approach – – where overall page / template layout is handled by CSS Grid with fullbleed component support. Uses leaner semantic HTML markup, and falls back to Flexbox, and then to simple 2-column float.

My current thinking is that our internal layout (using our existing “grid-” classes with 3 layers of DIVs) will use Flexbox instead of Grid, and will fall back to inline-block. No need to change HTML markup.

But our masonry grid component (which currently uses “funky” floats) will be update to use Grid – see – and again, no need to change markup.

And all of this will be mobile-first, so we can streamline CSS further.
