Available classes

  • FlexEmbed - The root node.
  • FlexEmbed-ratio - The element that provides the aspect ratio (1:1 by default).
  • FlexEmbed-ratio--3by1 - The modifier class for 3:1 aspect ratio embed.
  • FlexEmbed-ratio--2by1 - The modifier class for 2:1 aspect ratio embed,
  • FlexEmbed-ratio--16by9 - The modifier class for 16:9 aspect ratio embed.
  • FlexEmbed-ratio--4by3 - The modifier class for 4:3 aspect ratio embed.
  • FlexEmbed-content - The descendent class for the content that is being displayed.



<div class="FlexEmbed">
  <div class="FlexEmbed-ratio FlexEmbed-ratio--16by9"></div>
  <div class="FlexEmbed-content">
    <!-- child content -->

You can add custom own aspect ratios. For example, to create a 2.35:1 aspect ratio:

 * Modifier: 47:20 aspect ratio

.FlexEmbed-ratio--47by20 {
  padding-bottom: 42.55%;

Alternatively, aspect ratios can be calculated programmatically and the corresponding padding-bottom value applied using an inline style.

<div class="FlexEmbed">
  <div class="FlexEmbed-ratio" style="padding-bottom:{{percentage}}%"></div>
  <div class="FlexEmbed-content">
    <!-- child content -->
