Design Systems and CSS Grid

Stuart Robson uses CSS Grid for what it’s meant to be used for: creating a grid. He evens creates a faux subgrid by leveraging calc() to define the two margin-columns.

.container {
      minmax(calc(calc(100% - 1008px) / 2), 1fr)
          repeat(14, [col-start] 1fr)
      minmax(calc(calc(100% - 1008px) / 2), 1fr)

Add in some media queries to cater for other screen dimensions and you have an elegant grid system 🙂
