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 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?
