Native CSS Masonry Layout In CSS Grid

default-2

Rachel Andrew introducing the fact that masonry layout is going to be a thing in native CSS via CSS grid layout. The thing with masonry is that we can already do it for the most part, but there is just one thing that makes it hard: doing the vertical-staggering and having a left-to-right source order. So that’s what this new ability will solve in addition to it just being less hacky in general.

You can already test a partial implementation in Firefox Nightly by enabling layout.css.grid-template-masonry-value.enabled.

.container {
  display: grid;
  grid-template-columns: repeat(4, 1fr);
  grid-template-rows: masonry;
}

I like the grid-template-rows: masonry; syntax because I think it clearly communicates: “You aren’t setting these rows. In fact, there aren’t even really rows at all anymore, we’ll take care of that.” Which I guess means there are now rows to inherit in subgrid, which also makes sense.
