sass-grid

A responsive grid built on flexbox.

Uses flexbox and gracefully degrades in older browsers, supporting most of the same functionality using an inline-block grid.

Installation

Browserify

npm install --save sass-grid

Component

component install sass-grid

Note: You are limited to using the compiled version.

Usage

Using mixins

CSS:

@import "sass-grid"
@import "sass-named-breakpoints";

.feature-panel {
  @include grid();
  @include grid--halign-justify-center()
}

.feature-panel__feature {
  @include grid__unit();

  @include named_breakpoint('md') {
    @include grid__unit--cols(3);
  }

}

HTML:

<html class="flexbox"><!-- you'll probably use Modernizr and won't need to manually put this class here --!>
...

    <div class="feature-panel">
        <div class="feature-panel__feature">Does stuff</div>
        <div class="feature-panel__feature">Does more stuff</div>
        <div class="feature-panel__feature">Does even more stuff</div>
        <div class="feature-panel__feature">It just does all the stuff!</div>
    </div>

...
</html>

Using a compiled grid

CSS:

@import "sass-grid/dist/compiled"

HTML:

<html class="flexbox"><!-- you'll probably use Modernizr and won't need to manually put this class here --!>
...

    <div class="grid" u-xs="halign:justify-center">
        <div class="grid__unit" u-md="cols:3">Does stuff</div>
        <div class="grid__unit" u-md="cols:3">Does more stuff</div>
        <div class="grid__unit" u-md="cols:3">Does even more stuff</div>
        <div class="grid__unit" u-md="cols:3">It just does all the stuff!</div>
    </div>

...
</html>

Breakpoints

See sass-named-breakpoints.

Building your own grid

  1. Requires sass >=3.4
  2. Customise the grid settings in config.scss
  3. Run npm install
  4. Run npm run build

Notes

Why 12 columns?

Twelve is easily divisible by lots of numbers e.g. 2, 3, 4, 6

Why mixins over extends?
