Simple Grid Generator (SASS)

A SASS grid generator for creating responsive grids with some nice features. View an example at johnpolacek.github.io/simple-grid.

Features

Easy to Use

@import 'grid.generator.scss';
@include gridGenerator();

Set Your Columns

Switch to a 18-column or 24-column grid instead.

@include gridGenerator(18);

Breakpoints and Breakpoint Prefixes

Change the breakpoints, or add in more. Name the prefixes whatever you like xs-, xl-, etc. If you prefer, set ems for your breakpoints.

@include gridGenerator(
    12,
    (0, 20em, 30em, 60em, 80em),
    (xs-,s-,m-,l-,xl-),
    'em'
);

Breakpoint prefixing allows for markup that sets a default grid width, then overrides at different screen widths.

<div class="grid-3 m-grid-6 s-grid-12">
<!-- 
    In a 12-column grid, this translates to: 
        - Quarter width by default
        - Half width at the medium breakpoint
        - Full width at the small breakpoint
-->

Spacing Helpers

For quick, easy layouts, set custom utility classes to set consistent padding and margin on all your elements.

@include gridGenerator(
    12,
    (0, 480px, 800px),
    (s-,m-,l-),
    'px',
    $spaceUnits: (.5em,1em,2em)
);

In your HTML:

<div class="pad-2 m-pad-1 s-pad-0">
<div class="pad-bottom-4 marg-bottom-2">
<div class="pad-vertical-1 pad-sides-2">

You can use responsive breakpoint prefixing on these as well.

<div class="pad-sides-2 s-pad-sides-1">

Or don’t use any spacing helpers, if you prefer.

@include gridGenerator(
    12,
    (0, 480px, 800px),
    (s-,m-,l-),
    'px',
    $spaceUnits: false
);
