The minimal (~100-170 bytes) grid system for modern browsers.

You don't need monolithic CSS frameworks for simple grid systems. ~100 bytes of CSS can save your life. 💫


In the dist directory there are three minified files:

  • gridly-core.min.css (105 B): just the Gridly core including same-width column support and mobile responsive support.
  • gridly-col-widths.min.css (115 B): the custom width columns
  • gridly.min.css (165 B): the previous two files' content put together

If you need to support more browsers, you can use the prefixed versions. They're located in dist/prefixed. They're ~1.8× the size of their counterparts.

Browser Support

Gridly supports browsers that implement the Flexible Box Layout Module.

As of December 2015, browser support for flexbox is 81.27% for unprefixed, and 95.44% for prefixed.

🚀 Available on CDN!

Gridly is available on Check it out.

If you do not need custom width columns, you will probably want to use only gridly-core.min.css in your page. If you do need the custom width columns, you have to include gridly.min.css instead.


Include the CSS file in your page:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="gridly.min.css" type="text/css" charset="utf-8">

Then you can use the .row and .col classes:

<div class="row">
    <div class="col">Two</div>
    <div class="col">Column</div>

This will create two columns having equal widths.


☁️ Installation

Check out the dist directory to download the needed files and include them on your page.

If you're using this module in a CommonJS environment, you can install it using npm or yarn and require it:

# Using npm
npm install --save gridly

# Using yarn
yarn add gridly

📝 Documentation

The gridly-core.min.css file handles two classes:

  • row: the row containing columns
  • col: the column to put in the row

Because of the flexbox amazing power, the columns will have the same width (as many columns you want / row).

To extend this basic functionality, there is another file: gridly-col-widths.min.css. This adds the following classes:

  • col-tenth has 10% width
  • col-fifth has 20% width
  • col-quarter has 25% width
  • col-third has 33.3333334% width
  • col-half has 50% width

Like specified above, the gridly.min.css contains both: the core and the custom widths.

💖 Support my projects

I open-source almost everything I can, and I try to reply to everyone needing help using these projects. Obviously, this takes time. You can integrate and use these projects in your applications for free! You can even change the source code and redistribute (even resell it).

However, if you get some profit from this or just want to encourage me to continue creating stuff, there are few ways you can do it:

  • Starring and sharing the projects you like 🚀

  • Buy me a book—I love books! I will remember you after years if you buy me one. 😁 📖

  • PayPal—You can make one-time donations via PayPal. I'll probably buy a coffee tea. 🍵

  • Support me on Patreon—Set up a recurring monthly donation and you will get interesting news about what I'm doing (things that I don't share with everyone).

  • Bitcoin—You can send me bitcoins at this address (or scanning the code below): 1P9BRsmazNQcuyTxEqveUsnf5CERdq35V6

Thanks! ❤️

Run npm i to install the dependencies. Then, you can run the npm scripts using npm run <script-name>.

Run npm run release to recreate all the dist files.
