Flexbox grants us the power to align and distribute items within a container effortlessly.

Flexbox Terminology

Understanding the terms 'container' (parent) and 'items' (children) is crucial in the flexbox world.

Flex Direction

Flex direction controls the flow of items within the container, be it horizontal or vertical.

Flexbox Alignment

Flex alignment provides precise control over how items align themselves within the container.

Flexbox Gap

Flexbox gap property helps us add space between items, creating a cleaner and organized layout.

Flex Justify Content

Flex justify-content property aligns items horizontally within the container.

Flex Align Items

Flex align-items property aligns items vertically within the container.

Auto Margins

Flexbox automatically adjusts margins to distribute space evenly. However, we can customize this behavior as per our needs.

Flexbox Order

Change the sequence of items within the flex container using the flex-order property.

Flexbox Shorthand Properties

By combining several flexbox properties, we can streamline our code with shorthand properties.

Dynamic Content

Flexbox handles dynamic content gracefully, adjusting the layout as content changes.
