Flexbox is just a set of CSS codes. It’s just a matter of typing them into the stylesheet. There are no libraries or scripts and definitely no server setup.
From all the reading I've done so far, that is the impression I've gotten as well. My hope is to use it for supporting browsers with a graceful fall back to a less ideal but still acceptable style for others.
After your note, I did a bit more reading about it, and as you probably know, it’s a bigger deal than just including a library or two and writing some script like other such tools – some server setup and so on.
Hm, may I please ask for some of the sources about that? In my researches on flexbox I've not come across anything about required set-up such as you suggest. That's not to say I disbelieve you, but rather that if such set-up is required, I'd like to know what I need to do!
Everything I've read so far makes no mention of any set-up, but rather seems to indicate one simply employs the CSS and if the browser supports it, it works. Have I been mislead?
Thanks for the input! The Twitter idea is a good one, I'll give it a shot. Thanks!
I've been reading up on Flexbox and it does seem that in theory it should indeed work fine with Genesis. It's carried out purely as CSS, applying it to DIVs like any other styling, but with dramatic effect. I am hoping someone with some experience in applying it to Genesis will pipe up, just to get some first-hand scoop on it.
Still, I plan to invest in Genesis anyway, so if nothing else perhaps I can serve as a canary in the coal mine for others on this topic. 🙂 My web development experience is limited thought, so I might be a pretty dead canary pretty quick, heh.
What I think I'd like to achieve is a Flexbox-based responsive site that gracefully falls back to a more traditional structure for browsers that don't support the new CSS. I know Genesis will do a fantastic job for the fallback, so as long as I can style it with Flexbox as well, it will be an ideal all-occasion solution.
Thanks again for the words on the subject.
