AppendAround

A pattern for responsive markup

  • [c]2012, @scottjehl, Filament Group, Inc. MIT/GPL

how-to

1. Insert potential element containers throughout the DOM
2. give each container a data-set attribute with a value that matches all other containers' values
3. Place your appendAround content in one of the potential containers
4. Configure your CSS to only display one potential container at a time (and display others depending on @media conditions in your CSS)
4. Call appendAround() on that element when the DOM is ready, and it'll keep itself in a visibile container at all times

Sample markup

  <!-- potential container for appendAround -->
  <div class="foo" data-set="foobarbaz"></div>

  <ul>
   <li>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit.</li>
   <li>Aliquam tincidunt mauris eu risus.</li>
   <li>Vestibulum auctor dapibus neque.</li>
</ul>

  <!-- potential container for appendAround -->
  <div class="bar" data-set="foobarbaz"></div>

  <ul>
   <li>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit.</li>
   <li>Aliquam tincidunt mauris eu risus.</li>
   <li>Vestibulum auctor dapibus neque.</li>
</ul>


  <!-- initial container for appendAround -->
  <div class="baz" data-set="foobarbaz">

    <p class="sample">Sample appendAround Element</p>

  </div>

Sample CSS

/* the sample appendaround element */
.sample {
	padding: 1em;
	background: tan;
}

.baz {
	display: block;
}
.foo,
.bar {
	display: none; 
}

@media (min-width: 30em){
	.bar {
	  display: block;
	}
	.foo, .baz {
	  display: none; 
	}
}

@media (min-width: 50em){
	div.foo {
	  display: block;
	}
	div.bar, div.baz {
	  display: none; 
	}
}

Sample JavaScript call

$( ".sample" ).appendAround();
