Add External Stylesheets/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <link>s in order, and before the CSS in the editor. If you link to another Pen, it will include the CSS from that Pen. If the preprocessor matches, it will attempt to combine them before processing.

Babel includes JSX processing.

Add External Scripts/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <script>s in order, and run before the JavaScript in the editor. You can use the URL of any other Pen and it will include the JavaScript from that Pen.

    h1 The multiplier
    p A quick check across the elements will show you that each right and left margin of siblings also sums to 12. The margins on each element sum to 12 minus the fr unit width of that element.

      li g = fixed width of gutter
      li c = number of columns
      li m = multiplier

    p margin-right: g/c * m
    p margin-left: g/c * m

    p Sum the fr units to the left and right positions to get the multiplier:

      code grid-template-columns: 2fr  3fr 2fr  4fr  1fr

      li 2fr : margin-left: g/c * 0 ; margin-right: g/c * 10 ( 3 + 2 + 4 + 1)
      li 3fr : margin-left: g/c * 2 (2 + 0);  margin-right: g/c * 7 (2 + 4 + 1)
      li 2fr : margin-left: g/c * 5 (0 + 2 + 3); margin-right: g/c * 5 (4 + 1)
      li 4fr : margin-left: g/c * 7 ( 2 + 3 + 2  ); margin-right: g/c * 1 (1 +0)
      li 1fr : margin-left: g/c * 11 (4 + 2 + 3 + 2) ; margin-right: g/c * 0



                // the ONLY case in which you would do this is where:
//1. you are using named areas AND
//2. those areas are sized in fr

$b: 1.25rem; // base spacing unit of site
$cols: 12; // parent grid has 12 cols

@mixin alignToParent($map){
  $i: 1; // start the count at 1 for items in map
  $m: 0; // set multiplier to 0 as first margin is always 0
  $g: $b/$cols; // gutter is the base spacing unit divided by the number of cols in the parent grid
  @each $key, $value in $map {
    &__#{$key} {
      margin-left:calc(#{$g} * #{$m});
      $m: $m + $value; //add the current fr unit to pass to the next element as multiplier
      @if $i == length($map) { //if we have reached the end of the columns we set the margin to 0
        margin-right: 0; //end
      } @else {
         $r: $cols - $m; //right hand margin is the inverse, so subtract from number of $cols
      margin-right:calc(#{$g} * #{$r});
        $i: $i + 1; //otherwise increment our counter and go round again
