We're not entirely convinced that a View Flexbox plugin is required - it's a fairly simple matter to apply Flex attributes to view container divs and views row items, and get the desired result. Furthermore, you could theoretically achieve much of the work Flexbox requires by using the Views Bootstrap plugin, and overriding a few of its templates.
We'll update this article with details about the modules capabilities and limitations. In the meantime we invite anyone interested to experiment with the module, suggest improvements, or fork the code. Eventually, if there is a demand, we'll start the process of posting this little project to Drupal.org as a formal module.
