grid-area property doesn’t seem to be very readable. Is this property used much in practice or do most developers stick with the more readable (but less concise)
It is always best to conform to whatever syntax is already being used within a project but if you are working on a solo project then this is a matter of personal preference.
I do find
grid-column to be more readable than the
grid-area property and so I tend to use those properties instead. Whatever syntax you prefer, remember to be consistent with it.
