The place-self CSS shorthand property  allows you to align an individual item in both the block and inline directions at once (i.e. the align-self and justify-self properties) in a relevant layout system such as Grid or Flexbox. If the second value is not present, the first value is also used for it.

<div class="">
<div class="...">
    <div class="place-self:auto ...">1</div>
    <div class="...">2</div>
    <div class="...">3</div>

Basic usage


<div class="">
<div class="grid-cols:3 ...">
    <div class="place-self:auto|start ...">1</div>
    <div class="...">2</div>
    <div class="...">3</div>

Applying with functions

<div class="place-self:$(value)">...</div>

Master supports native CSS variables and functions, just add var(--key) or use shorthand$(key) for variables.

You can also use calc(expression), env(expression) and other CSS functions if the property supports it.
