React MUI Grid Layout
React MUI is a UI library that provides fully-loaded components, bringing our own design system to our production-ready components. MUI is a user interface library that provides predefined and customizable React components for faster and easy web development, these Material-UI components are based on top of Material Design by Google.
In this article, we’ll be discussing React MUI Grid layout. A responsive layout grid adapts to screen size and orientation, ensuring consistency across layouts.
Grid Layout Variants:
- Fluid grids: This grid type uses columns that scale and resize content and can use breakpoints to determine if the layout needs to change dramatically.
- Spacing: The spacing value can be any positive number, including decimals and any string.
- Responsive values: The grid layout supports all the responsive values like columns, columnSpacing, direction, rowSpacing, and spacing.
- Interactive: To make a grid layout interactive, use directions, justifyContent, and alignItems props.
- Auto-layout: The Auto-layout makes the items equitably share the available space and can set the width of one item and the others will automatically resize around it.
- Complex Grid: With the help of a grid layout, a complex layout can be made.
- Nested Grid: The container and item props are two independent booleans and can be combined to allow a Grid component to be both a flex container and child acting as a nested grid.
- Columns: We change the default number of columns (12) with the help of columns prop.
- Limitations: There are several limitations of grid layout like Negative margin, white-space: nowrap, direction: column | column-reverse.
- CSS Grid Layout: The grid layout is using CSS flexbox internally but we can use the system and CSS Grid to layout your pages.
- System props: The grid layout supports all system properties and can be used as props directly on the component.
- API: The API used in container layout is: <Grid />
<Grid> ... </Grid>
