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.

+ add another resource

You're using npm packages, so we've auto-selected Babel for you here, which we require to process imports and make it all work. If you need to use a different JavaScript preprocessor, remove the packages in the npm tab.

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.

Use npm Packages

We can make npm packages available for you to use in your JavaScript. We use webpack to prepare them and make them available to import. We'll also process your JavaScript with Babel.

⚠️ This feature can only be used by logged in users.

        <h2>CSS Grid Layout</h2>

        <p>To begin working with a CSS Grid Layout, it is very important to have display: grid; set on the container. The grid-template-columns are declared here to give the overall structure of the page. Remember how the Flexbox example had the .main class set to a flex-grow of 3 and the sidebar had a flex-grow of 1 to establish sizing? Well, here the grid-template-columns have been set as 1fr and 3fr.</p>
         <p> This is where the grid is taking shape with the fractional units. With these values, it is apparent that there are two columns and they are not equal with. The column set to 3fr is three times wider than the other. This explains how the sidebar appears more narrow than the content area.</p>
