This PR replaces gridster.js with React-Grid-Layout.

The main advantage is that React-Grid-Layout works more smoothly, with less surprises, and lets us do nicer things than gridster.js, like having responsive dashboards or fitting the widgets properly on the screen. In the development front, React-Grid-Layout is much easier to understand, and it integrates better with React and our current application.

This PR takes care of implementing all current functionalities using React-Grid-Layout. As a new addition, I made the number of columns available variable, and depending on the user's screen size. This will allow users with large screens to fit more widgets into the dashboard, while still being able to see them when using a smaller device.

Style dragging widgets
- Use move cursor when hovering over widgets that can be dragged
- Change target color to blue, like we had before
Use responsive layout
This allows us to adjust the number of columns displayed in the
dashboard using the screen width.

When dashboards are created on large screens, react-grid-layout will
take care of displaying out of bound widgets somewhere visible.
Avoid re-rendering all graphs on lock/unlock
Use some CSS trickery and the `draggableHandle` property to avoid
re-rendering all widgets when the dashboard lock status changes.
See: STRML/react-grid-layout#371
Fix visualization redraw when window is resized
- We use jQuery to listen to those events to ensure all widget elements
are being called to handle the event
- Also throttle those events, to avoid redrawing the widgets too often
