Should I be excited for subgrid in CSS?

Week 285.0 — 11th April '23

In CSS, subgrid is something I've heard about but not really gotten around to understanding. Last month, I finally got around to watching @argyleInk's 2022 Google I/O talk on the State of CSS and it covered subgrid really nicely.

subgrid looks like it should actually reduce complexity despite being another piece of the layout puzzle. Full bleed images is a design pattern we see across the web, and while it can be achieved with CSS today, BrowserStack have a good article on the topic of subgrid where they break down why it's a bit of a problem at the moment.

Having subgrids reference their parents makes sense, I think, but I need to dig a little deeper to see how this plays out in some real world examples.
