Oke so this just happened...

Spent 30 minutes figuring out why the f**k a div was vertically centered within another one.

Apparently margin:auto within a display: flex not only centers horizontally but also vertically.

I remember the days when i spent hours vertically centering sh*t. What universe are we in?

    Could someone provide an example? I'm not into web development but it seems really interesting

    Oh I feel sorry for web devs, I think they are the most suffering devs on earth, I do have similar problems in mobile development but non that make me suffer like this one

    Looks like jsfiddle is not a brilliant mobile service. Anyway, idea is clear.

    @ctrlz I thought flex can only center szuff in one dimension, either horizontaly or verticaly and that's why there's grid (well at least it's comming).

    Ok grid has a lot of other cool stuff, like "reordering" content based on display size.

    If this works it's a good find. I normally do

    Display: flex;
    Align-items: centre;
    Text-align: centre;
