MUELLER

Modular Grid System.

About

MUELLER is a modular grid system for responsive/adaptive and non-responsive layouts, based on Compass. You have full control over column width, gutter width, baseline grid and media-queries.

Modules

Media

One default grid and (if needed) different per-media grids (e.g. large, tablet, handheld):

@include grids(d,
    24,
    20px,
    20px,
    0 2 3 4 6 8 12 16 24,
    0 2 4 6 8 12);

Layouts

Extend your media-grids to pre-defined layouts (e.g. a 2-column layout with switched columns):

.l-2c {
    @extend .g-d-24;
    @extend .g-l-24;
    @extend .g-tp-12;
    @extend .g-h-6;
    .c-1 {
        @extend .g-d-12;
        @extend .g-l-12;
        @extend .g-tp-6;
        @extend .g-h-3;
    }
    .c-2 {
        @extend .g-d-12;
        @extend .g-l-12;
        @extend .g-tp-6;
        @extend .g-h-3;
    }
}

Fractions

On top of grids and layouts, add fractional classes (e.g. all-half, all-thirds, all-1of3):

.g-all-half {
    .l-1c .c-1 & {
        @extend .g-d-12;
        @extend .g-l-12;
        @extend .g-tp-6;
        @extend .g-h-3;
    }
}

Templates

The semantic way — add templates instead of using presentational classes in your markup:

.template-1 {
    #page {
        @extend .l-2c;
    }
    #content {
        @extend .c-1;
    }
    #sidebar {
        @extend .c-2;
    }
}

Practice

MUELLER is NOT working out of the box. Read the Code, read this and try to understand what´s happening. Learn Sass/Compass.

Change the grid, change the baseline, activate/deactivate different media-queries, add layouts/fractions. Figure out what´s working best for you.

Think about your layout first — you can´t just add "responsiveness" to every given layout. Reflect on Mobile First, use HTML5.

System

You mainly get the file grid_system – this is where the system is defined. All other parts (media, layouts, fractions, templates) are just examples of how to work with MUELLER. MUELLER is licensed under BSD.
