CSS Grid Layout vs CSS Frameworks: When To Use What?(lambdatest.com)

    CSS grid is a layout tool... CSS frameworks contain layout rules, but also contain WAYYYY more:

    • guidelines and usage rules
    • base design tokens (variables etc)
    • built components using said tokens
    • common design patterns for the system etc

    Comparing and conflating these two concepts makes absolutely no sense, considering a 'CSS Framework' could very well utilize a css grid layout implementation.

    CSS grid is not a framework, its a layout tool. A piece to the larger puzzle. Frameworks combine a bunch of puzzle pieces and form a larger, more cohesive system. What is the point of articles like this that attempt to compare apples and oranges?
