The sidebar layout helper creates a pair of content panels inside a containing element. These two panels stack vertically, until there is enough horizontal space for them to sit alongside each other. One content panel is typically narrower than the other, acting as a "sidebar".
The sidebar layout helper needs an inner flexbox container to hold the two panels. The same negative margin technique used for the cluster layout creates gutter spacing between the panels.
The point at which the panels sit side-by-side horizontally is determined by a
flex-basis property on the narrower panel and a
min-width on the wider panel. As there are no viewport media queries, the sidebar layout will nest nicely inside other containers.
It is not recommended to use the sidebar layout helper to create an entire page layout, with a main content area and a sidebar. This is because the technique Amplify uses to manage responsive tables has been found not to work if the table sits within the sidebar layout helper.
Using nested containers for spacing content
Using intrinsic content width for the sidebar
We can choose to not specify a width on the narrow "sidebar" panel (by not declaring a
flex-basis value) and let the content of the sidebar determine how wide it is. The preceding example shows how to override the default styles by using an additional class and omitting the
