React Instagram Clone – CSS Grid & Styled-components
Download React Instagram Clone – CSS Grid & Styled-components course. Build an Image Gallery app with React, React Router, and styled-components, mastering CSS Grid with over 100 examples!
Description of React Instagram Clone – CSS Grid & Styled-components
Now updated for the latest version of React and Styled-components!
First learn CSS Grid with the Gridfolio App, exploring each parent and child property of CSS Grid. Then build the GridGallery app, an Image Gallery app built with React, React Router and Styled-components.
With the Gridfolio app, you’ll access over 100 Grids, with grids for each parent and child property of CSS Grid. We explain through example, so you’ll see how each Grid property changes with new and different values, and how you can combine multiple Grid properties together.
We’ll discuss the more confusing properties of CSS Grid, like grid-auto-flow, grid-template-areas, and the elusive grid property. Each lecture expands on the previous, giving you knowledge that you can build on and use in the GridGallery app, a professional React project worthy of any React career developer. You’ll also get the full source code to the Gridfolio project.
With the GridGallery app, you’ll build a real Image Gallery app. Starting from the create-react-app boilerplate, you’ll learn through examples from React Router, style an Image modal, build and test a responsive PhotoGrid that works on any device.
You’ll learn how to find your own stock photos and fonts to personalize your image gallery. You’ll use styled-components to easily style React components without new CSS files. You’ll gain full access to the source code of the GridGallery app project, so you can reference the completed project at any time.
We’re here to answer your questions and we want you to succeed! With the Q&A section, you’ll join a community of developers building the same project, so you can collaborate and get instant feedback to your issues.
Thanks, and best of luck!

This course has done a good job getting me started with styled components and grid so it did that part really well. The instructor is clearly on top of his game.
However, sometimes the explanations are not entirely clear (aren’t you mixing up columns and rows/children sometimes when explaining the cascade layout?) . Also, this is quite a steep learning curve for someone just learning React.
The boilerplate you use from the React Router website has since been updated, it looks different now. I had to manually start typing up that original code from the article you posted in the beginning. The final code in the resources folder is exactly that: final. So I can’t really go back to the starting point unless I manually type up the starting boilerplate, which is tedious. I wish I had had a better code-along experience.
I guess I will watch this again in 2 months when I am more advanced to collect the full wisdom that’s in there!
The uneven sound levels did not bother me at all, it’s not significant. If you correct anything, add the starting boilerplate code to the resources library next to the final code.
Thanks for your work, I hope this feedback helps with future courses.
