The Difference Between Width and Flex Basis | Geddski

Within a Flexbox layout, there are multiple CSS attributes that may affect a child's basis (the initial width before flexing). You might be confused how flex-basis, width, min-width and the intrinsic width of your content play together.

The attached article explains the differences. In summary:

  • If a flex-basis is set, that is used as the basis
  • If no flex-basis is set, the width is used as the basis
  • If neither flex-basis nor width is set, the content's computed width is used as the basis

In all cases min-width and max-width define a lower and upper bound for the effective width chosen within the Flexbox.
