Welcome to part-7 of the series. You can find part-6 here.

We will learn the important concept of CSS Grid alignment and centring in this tutorial.

We will use this codepen in the tutorial. We will learn about the below four properties in this tutorial. You should also bookmark this awesome quick reference from CSS trick to quickly check these.


CSS grid doesn’t have a flex-direction property like flexbox. So, justify-* is row axis and align-* is column axis

Our basic CSS is as below, in which we have a grid with 40 items, 10 columns of 1fr each.

<div class="container">
<div class="itm itm1">1</div>
<div class="itm itm2">2</div>
<div class="itm itm3">3</div>
<div class="itm itm4">4</div>
<div class="itm itm5">5</div>
<div class="itm itm6">6</div>
<div class="itm itm7">7</div>
<div class="itm itm8">8</div>
<div class="itm itm9">9</div>
<div class="itm itm10">10</div>
<div class="itm itm11">11</div>
<div class="itm itm12">12</div>
<div class="itm itm13">13</div>
<div class="itm itm14">14</div>
<div class="itm itm15">15</div>
<div class="itm itm16">16</div>
<div class="itm itm17">17</div>
<div class="itm itm18">18</div>
<div class="itm itm19">19</div>
<div class="itm itm20">20</div>
<div class="itm itm21">21</div>
<div class="itm itm22">22</div>
<div class="itm itm23">23</div>
<div class="itm itm24">24</div>
<div class="itm itm25">25</div>
<div class="itm itm26">26</div>
<div class="itm itm27">27</div>
<div class="itm itm28">28</div>
<div class="itm itm29">29</div>
<div class="itm itm30">30</div>
<div class="itm itm31">31</div>
<div class="itm itm32">32</div>
<div class="itm itm33">33</div>
<div class="itm itm34">34</div>
<div class="itm itm35">35</div>
<div class="itm itm36">36</div>
<div class="itm itm37">37</div>
<div class="itm itm38">38</div>
<div class="itm itm39">39</div>
<div class="itm itm40">40</div>
justify-* is row axis
align-* is column axis
.container {
display: grid;
grid-gap: 20px;
grid-template-columns: repeat(10, 1fr);
