mooMasonry

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.
