Element layout engine for Mootools

branch: master


mooMasonry is a layout plugin for Mootools. Think of it as the flip side of CSS floats. Whereas floating arranges elements horizontally then vertically, mooMasonry arranges elements vertically then horizontally according to a grid. The result minimizes vertical gaps between elements of varying height, just like a mason fitting stones in a wall.

How to use

HTML code:

<div id="primary">
    <div class="box col2">...</div>
    <div class="box col1">...</div>
    <div class="box col1">...</div>
    <div class="box col3">...</div>
        <div class="box col1">...</div>
        <div class="box col2">...</div>
        <div class="box col3">...</div>

JS sample:'primary').masonry({
    columnWidth: 100, 
    itemSelector: '.box' 



    singleMode: false,
    // Disables measuring the width of each floated element.
    // Set to true if floated elements have the same width.
    // default: false

    columnWidth: 240,
    // Width in pixels of 1 column of your grid.
    // default: outer width of the first floated element.

    itemSelector: '.box:visible',
    // Additional selector to specify which elements inside
    // the wrapping element will be rearranged.
    // Required for Infinite Scroll with window resizing.

    resizeable: true,
    // Binds a mooMasonry call to window resizes.
    // default: true

    appendedContent: '.new_content',
    // Additional container element for appended content.
    // Useful for Infinite Scroll integration.



    Fires when masonry of the container is complete. contrainer is the wrapper who just got masoned.
