Flex grids use flexbox to position columns within rows.

Outlining the grid

This should help you visualize the columns. The grey dotted box is the grid and the orange dotted boxes are the columns.

You can create a flex grid with and without gutters. To remove gutters, set the gutter prop to false or use the .grid-nogutter class. Here are examples of what each would look like.

Justify content within a grid

Set the justifyContent prop on a Grid to control spacing around and between inner FlexCols.

Using the col prop on a FlexCol or the col-{n} classes, you can create a basic grid system by specifying the width of each column out of 24.

Dynamic column growth

You can also specify how the columns grow with the grow={n} prop or the col-grow-{n} classes (n = 2 - 11). These columns will attempt to respect their given ratio until the content of the column exceeds their parameters, after which the column will drop onto another row:

You can specify three different media breakpoints with the breakpoint prop or the .col-sm, .col-md, and .col-lg classes.
