Our Nextjs grid is a powerful mobile-first flexbox grid which helps you build layouts of all shapes and sizes thanks to a twelve column system, five default responsive tiers, Sass variables and mixins, and dozens of predefined classes.
Nextjs grid system uses a series of containers, rows, and columns to layout and aligns content. It’s built with flexbox and is fully responsive. Below is an example and an in-depth look at how the grid comes together.

The above example creates three equal-width columns on small,
medium, large, and extra large devices using our predefined grid
classes. Those columns are centered in the page with the parent

Utilize breakpoint-specific column props for easy column sizing

For example, here are two grid layouts that apply to every device

every column will be the same width.
Equal-width columns can be broken into multiple lines, but there was

Setting one column width
Auto-layout for flexbox grid columns also means you can set the width of one column and have the sibling columns automatically resize around it. You may use predefined grid classes (as shown below), grid mixins, or inline widths. Note that the other columns will resize no matter the width of the center column.

Bootstrap’s grid includes five tiers of predefined classes for building complex responsive layouts. Customize the size of your columns on extra small, small, medium, large, or extra large devices however you see fit.
For grids that are the same from the smallest of devices to the
largest, use the
classes. Specify a numbered class when you need a particularly sized
column; otherwise, feel free to stick to
Stacked to horizontal
Using a single set of
classes, you can create a basic grid system that starts out stacked
and becomes horizontal at the small breakpoint (
Mix and match
Don’t want your columns to simply stack in some grid tiers? Use a combination of different classes for each tier as needed. See the example below for a better idea of how it all works.
For faster mobile-friendly and responsive development, Bootstrap includes dozens of utility classes for showing, hiding, aligning, and spacing content.
Containers are the most basic layout element in Bootstrap and are required when using our default grid system. Containers are used to contain, pad, and (sometimes) center the content within them. While containers can be nested, most layouts do not require a nested container.
Bootstrap comes with three different containers:
<Container>, which sets a max-width at each responsive breakpoint
<Container fluid>, which is width: 100% at all breakpoints
<Container fluid="breakpoint", which is width: 100% until the specified breakpoint
