Breakpoints

What is a "breakpoint"?

Breakpoint is a condition upon which layout acquires a new state. Such condition is often based on a device's characteristics like screen size, resolution, orientation, and others.
Atomic Layout operates with the same breakpoints you would use in plain CSS media queries.

Default breakpoint name

Whenever a component's prop is not suffixed by a breakpoint name, a default breakpoint name is used.
The default breakpoint name is xs, making mobile-first the default responsive behavior.
