Safari 14.1 Adds Support for Flexbox Gaps

No Comments

Yay, it’s here! Safari 14.1 reportedly adds support for the gap property in flexbox layouts. We’ve had grid-gap support for some time, but true to its name, it’s limited to grid layouts. Now we can use gap in either type of layout:

.container {
display: flex;
flex-flow: row wrap;
gap: 1.5rem;
}

Apple’s been rather quiet about the update. I didn’t even hear about it until Eric Meyer brought it up in an email, and he only heard about it when Jen Simmons tweeted it out.

Did you see, Safari 14.1 shipped yesterday… including support for Gaps in Flexbox.

(*Can I Use & MDN still need to be updated, so they don’t show support yet… but it’s there! Try it out.)

I checked the WebKit CSS Feature Status and, sure enough, it’s supported. It just wasn’t called out in the release notes. Nothing is posted to Safari’s release notes archive just yet, so maybe we’ll hear about it officially there at some point. For now, it seems that Maximiliano Firtman‘s overview of iOS 14.5 is the deepest look at what’s new.

And how timely is it that Eric recently covered how to use the gap property, not only in grid and flexbox layouts, but multi-column as well.
