Difference

Grid Layout Flex-Box Layout
In this Grid Layout the size of a cell (grid-items) is defined inside the grid-container. In flexbox Layout the size of a cell (flex-items) is defined inside the flex-items itself.

Overview

Both are ultimately used to manipulate the layout.

Let's try to style this using both flexbox and grid to get the following result.

    <div class="row">
        <div>1</div>
        <div>2</div>
        <div>3</div>
        <div>4</div>
    </div>

Using grid

.row {
    margin:20px auto;
    max-width:300px;
    display:grid;
    grid-template-columns: 1fr 1fr 1fr 1fr;
    }
    
.row div {
    border:1px dashed gray;
    text-align:center;
    padding:12px;
}

Now we are defining the cell's size using grid template columns inside the grid container (.row), not the grid items.

Difference

Flexbox Doesn't
