<div class="oj-flex">
   <div class="oj-flex-item">a</div>
   <div class="oj-flex-item">b</div>
</div>
.oj-flex-item
The class oj-flex-item, child of oj-flex.

<div class="oj-flex">
   <div class="oj-flex-item">a</div>
   <div class="oj-flex-item">b</div>

Category: Flex Direction

Responsive classes to set the flex-direction property. In Redwood these classes use the CSS !important property to override classes with higher specificity.

NOTE: IE 11 can have issues when setting the flex-direction property to column in combination with other properties.
For example if the children's flex property is also set to 1 the layout completely breaks on IE.
This is a browser bug you will need to work around, so make sure to test on IE 11 if it's a browser you need to support.
