This particularly awesome for making embedded stuff, like videos or playlists, scale appropriately within a content area. This can done by hand but it's difficult to maintain, especially with CMS's and multiple editors. Reframe.js solves this issue—perfectly!
Alternatively, noframe.js is provided. Noframe.js scales selected elements at a fixed ratio but does not manipulate the dom's element structure at all! This keeps things like analytic events that run on embedded content intact!
npm i reframe.js --save
bower i reframe.js --save
yarn add reframe.js
reframethe element you'd like to re-frame.
reframe('iframe'); // Wrap all iFrames in the page reframe(document.getElementById('my-frame')); // Pass a DOM element reframe(document.querySelectorAll('.my-targets')) // Pass a live node list
Elements that have been wrapped with reframe will not be wrapped twice.
Reframe.js wraps a specified element in a
div that is an intrinsic ratio of the original element. This plugin is great for embedded content like
Reframe.js is inspired by FitVids and does what FitVids does but without the need for
jQuery. This makes the plugin highly valuable when including it in a module that has to be very small and with minimal dependencies. Here's a basic codepen example.
This plugin is small -
~1.3kb unminified and is meant to do 1 thing - wrap elements that aren't responsive and make them responsive.
If you'd like to not use the classname 'js-reframe', just use your own.
You can use Reframe.js with jQuery or Zepto as well.
$('iframe').reframe(); // While using a custom class name $('iframe').reframe('my-classname');
Noframe.js makes the same ratio as Reframe.js using css calc.
Noframe.js's doesn't wrap the element you'd like to be responsive. It, instead, does a calculation based on its or a parent element's
max-width. Here's a basic codepen example.
- The reframed element requires a parent element with a
max widthto scale above the selected elements intial size otherwise the reframed element will only scale below its initial size.
noframethe element you'd like to re-frame.
noframe('iframe'); noframe('iframe', 'parent');
You can use Noframe.js with jQuery as well.
Reframe.js or Noframe.js?
Reframe.js offers the simplest solution to making elements scale at an intrinsic ratio.
Noframe.js doesn't wrap the selected element to make it scale at an intrinsic ratio. Noframe.js is the ideal solution when various events, like tracking events, could be affected when an element is wrapped. It does require a
max-width which can involve a bit more setup awareness.
