ChatGPT is an AI chatbot that can provide human-like responses to questions we ask. I asked it to create a video tutorial script about Flexbox, along with the code to go with it. This is what it came up with.

Quickly add as well it will be read by Me and just reading all of the script as Generated by the bot okay so enjoy Foreign Welcome to chat gpt's guide to full Xbox In this tutorial we're going to be Diving into the world of flexbox and Learning how to use this powerful tool To create flexible and responsive Layouts in the first part of the Tutorial we'll be covering the basics of Flexbox and looking at some code Examples to help you get started then in The second part we'll be using what We've learned to create a basic page Layout with a header main content and a Sidebar so grab your code editor sit Back and get ready to flex those layout Skills so flexbox my friends is the Bee's knees of layout it's like a Superhero for your HTML and CSS giving You the power to create flexible and Responsive layouts with ease think of it As a container for your HTML elements Where you can control the direction Alignment and spacing of those elements Like a boss with flexbox you can say Goodbye to using floats and table based Layouts and hello to clean modern and Easy to maintain code we're going to be Flexing our HTML and CSS muscles so put On your superhero cap and let's get Started First we'll start by creating a basic
Flex container to do this we add the Display property with a value of flex to The parent elements in this example Let's say the parent element is a div With a class of container here we've Added three child elements with a class Of item inside our container this is Just to give you an idea of how the flex Properties would affect the child Elements in the CSS we've added the Display Flex property to the parent Element which tells the browser to lay Out all its children elements in a flex Layout we're also giving the container Items a width of 300 pixels a height of 100 pixels and a black solid one pixel Border next we'll look at the flex Direction property this property Controls the direction of the flex items Within the container the default value Is row which means the items will be Laid out in a row from left to right but We can also use the column value to make The item stack vertically if you preview This in a browser you'll see that the Child elements are now stacked Vertically now let's change the value of Flex Direction back to row and if you Preview this in a browser you'll see That the child elements are now stacked Horizontally Now let's talk about alignment the Justified content property controls the Alignment of the items along the main
Axis which is the row axis by default You can use values like Flex Start Center flex and space between and space Around to align items if you preview This in the browser you'll see that the Child elements are now centered along The main axis another important Alignment property is align items which Controls the alignment of the items Along the cross axis by default it's set To stretch which means the items will Stretch to fill the container but you Can also use values like flexstart Center and flex end If you preview this in the browser You'll see that the child elements are Now centered along the cross axis and Lastly to wrap up the basics let's talk About the flex wrap property this Property controls whether the items will Wrap to the next line when they run out Of space by default it's set to no wrap But you can also use wrap or wrap Reverse now if you preview this in the Browser you'll see that the child Elements are now wrapping to the next Line when they run out of space and you Can change the values of the properties To see the different effects in the Browser and that's it for the basics of Flexbox folks don't worry if it all Seems a bit overwhelming take your time And play around with the code examples Also don't hesitate to look at the
Resources provided by the net ninja horn He has a lot of great tutorials and Examples on his website Now I just want to interject right here This is me Sean and I want to say that That was chat gpt's words not mine I Promise you all right so back to chat GPT script All right folks now that we've flexed Our layout muscles and learned the Basics of flexbox it's time to put that Knowledge to the test we're going to use Flexbox to create a snazzy page layout So grab your code editor your favorite Beverage and let's make something Beautiful together first we'll start by Creating a container for our navbar this Will be a header element with a class of Navbar inside the header we'll have a Nav element that will contain all our Links next we're going to add the title Of the site Dojo blog as an H1 element And place it within the navbar at the Start If we preview this in a browser we can See all those links and the H1 Now we'll apply flexbox to our navbar Container by adding the following CSS The justify content space between Property will make sure that our title And links are evenly distributed across The navbar while the Align item Center Property will Center the title Vertically in the nav bar and if we
Preview this in a browser we can see the Links in the H1 with a lot of space Between each one Lastly we can position the links to the Right of the navbar and the H1 on the Left by giving the H1 a margin right of Auto to add space between the links you Can also add a margin left value of 10 Pixels to each anchor tag in the nav and If we preview in the browser again we Can see the H1 is now on the left and The links are all on the right With this HTML and CSS we've created a Basic navbar with flexbox that contains The title Dojo blog and four links Aligned to the right of the navbar after Completing the steps for creating the Navbar you can add some additional Styles to make it look a bit nicer for Example you can add a background color To the navbar using the background color Property as well as some Padu you can Also change the font family and color For the title and links using the font Family and color properties please note That I've used common web fonts like Pop-ins and open Sans you might need to Include them in your project if you want To use them keep in mind that this is Just a basic example you can always add More Styles or customize it to your Liking also don't forget to preview Those changes in the browser to see the Effect of the different properties
Alright folks now that we've got a Snazzy nav bar it's time to move on to The main event the main content we're Going to create a two column layout with The main content area on the left and a Side mount on the right where the main Content area will be the blog post and The sidebar will contain other links or Using flexbox let's dive in and make it Happen First we'll start by creating a Container for our main content and Sidebar this will be a div element with A class of main content inside the div We have two more divs one for the main Content and one for the sidebar next We'll add some content to the main Content area this could be a blog post Title some text and an image and we'll Also add some links for other categories To the sidebar If we preview this in a browser so far We can see all the content on the page Now we'll apply flexbox to our main Content container by adding the Following CSS this will make sure that The main content area and the sidebar Are laid out next to each other next We'll set the width of the main content Area and the sidebar to 50 each so They'll take up equal space on the page We can preview this in a browser now to See the two columns of content Now we can add some additional styles to
The main content area for example a Background color font family or font Weight or padding using the following CSS and we can add some additional Styles to the sidebar for example a Background color a font family some font Weight and padding using the following CSS With this HTML CSS we've created a two Column layout for the main content of a Blog post with a sidebar containing the Other category links well folks that's a Wrap you've just learned the basics of Flexbox and how to use it to create a Snazzy page layout I hope you had as Much fun as I did and as Sean the net Ninja did too we like the dynamic duo of Web development Batman and Robin Bonnie And Clyde but without the whole criminal Thing we're more like the dynamic duo of Making your websites look amazing and User-friendly don't forget to subscribe To the YouTube channel give this video a Like and share it with your friends and Family and if you're feeling Particularly generous you can also buy Us a virtual coffee or two thanks for Watching and we'll see you in the next Tutorial All right so it's me again Sean and that Is the end of Chachi PT script so I just Wondered what everyone thought of that Tutorial as taught by chat GPT I thought It was okay it was kind of standard but
There was a lot of things I would have Done differently if I was creating the Tutorial myself obviously and to be Honest when I was generating this Tutorial with the aid of chat GPT I had To really nudge it in a direction I Wanted it to go to because otherwise it Would just pump out something that Wasn't quite right or didn't kind of Feel right for the tutorial so I think That's where a lot of the skill is going To lie in the future when people are Working with AI to create content for The web or content for something else It's going to be in how you can best Guide AI in the direction that you want It to go to because otherwise it's all Going to be very generic and it's going To feel like the human has been stripped Out of the content which isn't good so That's my thoughts anyway it would be Good to know what everyone else thinks Down in the comments and maybe in the Future I'll do another one I'll work With it a little bit more see if we can Guide it in if slightly better direction To make something that felt a little More human but yeah let me know what you Think down in the comments [Music]
