CSS Grid is so much better than bootstrap.

I do big CSS projects infrequently enough that every time I do it changes completely and I have to learn it all over again. CSS Grid is worth the bother.

But CSS is still a hot mess of "that can't be fixed or it'll break everything," and "why is something so conceptually simple still so damned hard?"

I'm glad I found this thread! Grid seems like part of a puzzle I'm piecing together.

I've been taking a web dev bootcamp from udemy (the Web Developer Boot Camp 2021, by Colt Steele), because it's time I updated my geocities era web development skills.

I just got to the layout part of the course, where they teach flex box, which seems nice, but they say it's new, within the last year or two. Last time I laid out web pages, I did it with tables, and I used iframes maybe once or twice. So I have this big gap in my knowledge of how web sites are laid out. What happened between tables and flex box?

I don't expect a huge encyclopedic explanation, but maybe somebody could give me a quick list of things to search for to catch up on what I missed? I'm finding it surprisingly difficult to trace the history of things like this.

CSS happened. For like, a decade.

Eventually, Bootstrap was dropped on everyone like a lead brick. Thanks, Twitter! (No really, thanks.)
