Atomic layout is an implementational paradigm that delegates spacial distribution between any layout composites to the dedicated layer. That helps to create declarative, immutable, and maintainable layouts using CSS Grid.
Think of how we create layouts today. Most likely we define a set of reusable units (atoms) to combine them into functional compositions. But how do we handle spacing that should describe the position of our units? Usually, we manage CSS properties of those units to make sure the spacing is just right. Not only that results into writing redundant CSS, but it also makes our atoms contextual and, thus, non-maintainable.
Atomic layout solves this problem by exposing a dedicated layer responsible for spacial distribution in a layout, or any of its parts. That allows to reuse atom components in any layout possible without mutating them.
Install the package using any package manager (npm, yarn, etc.):
yarn add atomic-layout
