In this article, I will solve a Missing Slice CSS Challenge on CSS Battle. Let's look at the problem first.

Problem

We need to create the following container by using CSS Properties only: Missing Slice

Solution

So now look at the Solution and how we are going to achieve this.

HTML

index.html

<div class="one"></div>
<div class="two"></div>
<div class="three"></div>

I took three divs to create the shape. Each one of them represents a slice.

CSS

Now let's style the body container first.

styles.css

body {
  margin: 0;
  background: #e3516e;
  display: grid;
  grid-template-columns: 1fr 1fr;
}

I have used a grid to layout the children. grid-template-columns: 1fr 1fr property defines that there should be two columns with 1fr. Here fr represents a fraction of the available space in the grid container.

Now Let's style the individual slices

styles.css

body {
  margin: 0;
  background: #e3516e;
  display: grid;
  grid-template-columns: 1fr 1fr;
}
.one, .two, .three {
  width: 100;
  height: 100;
}
.one {
  background: #51b5a9;
  border-radius: 100% 0 0 0; 
  place-self: end;
}
.two {
  background: #fade8b;
  border-radius: 0 100% 0 0;
  place-self: end start;
}
.three {
  background: #f7f3d7;
  border-radius: 0 0 0 100%;      /* top-left , top-right, bottom-right, bottom-left */
  place-self: start end;
}

In the above code, you can see that I have used place-self in all of the slices. 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).

Tip

Note: In CSS Battle you can use 100 instead of 100px. You don't need to define px in CSS. However, if you are using rem or %, you need to pass them separately. That's why in the above CSS code there are no units mostly. For more info visit here

Alternate Solution

There could be many Alternative Solutions I've used this one because of the fewer characters and simplicity.

HTML

index.html

<p f>
<p s>
<p t>

Here f stands for the First slice, s stands for the Second slice, and t stands for the third slice.

CSS

styles.css

* { margin:0 }  
body {
  background: #e3516e;
  display: grid;
  grid-template-columns: 1fr 1fr;
}
[f], [s], [t] {
  width: 100;
  height: 100;
}
[f] {
  background: #51b5a9;
  border-radius: 100% 0 0 0;
  place-self: end;
}
[s] {
  background: #fade8b;
  border-radius: 0 100% 0 0;
  place-self: end start;
}
[t] {
  background: #f7f3d7;
  border-radius: 0 0 0 100%;
  place-self: start end;
}
Tip #1

Note: In CSS Battle you can use 100 instead of 100px. You don't need to define px in CSS. However, if you are using rem or %, you need to pass them separately. That's why in the above CSS code there are no units mostly. For more info visit here.

Tip #2

Minify the code or CSS by using any CSS Minifier. It helps you to reduce the characters in the code which will increase the score.
