Well, I’m guilty as charged when it comes to using new layout technologies in an antiquated way, but this was intentional as I’ve been trying to convince my team to move away from Bootstrap.

So, I built a Bootstrap-style grid system using flex properties to demonstrate the most basic and superficial improvements, without approaching the question of mark-up.

I’ve been reading about the Grid spec for a while now, but I’ve never had the time to sit down and get my hands dirty. I was a little reluctant to spend time on something which is only enabled behind flags in even the most bleeding-edge browsers.

However, reading this, I now see why the Grid spec is so exciting. HTML and CSS will be cut down to an unprecedented leanness.

This needs to get implemented.
