Herow, a time-saving Sass grid system.

Herow provides mixins that are simple to use and easy to customize.
It also provides atomic mixins, that are ideal to deal with responsive problematic.
Last, but not least, you can generate atomic classes to play with it directly in CSS.

Simple to use

.main {
  // A row, with a 1em gutter
  @include Herow-row();
}
.content {
  // A column, that spans 8 columns of 12
  @include Herow-column(8);
}
.sidebar {
  // A column, that spans 4 columns of 12
  @include Herow-column(4);
}

Easy to customize

Grid size

You can set a grid size as a parameter of the Herow-column() mixin.

.content {
  // A column, that spans 3 columns of 4
  @include Herow-column(3, 4);
}

or you can set your grid size globally.

$Herow-default-column-count: 16;
.content {
  // A column, that spans 8 columns of 16
  @include Herow-column(8);
}

Gutter width

You can set a gutter width as a parameter of the Herow-row() and Herow-column() mixins.

.main {
  // A row, with a 1em gutter
  @include Herow-row(1em);
}
.content {
  // A column, that spans 3 columns of 4, with a 1em gutter
  @include Herow-column(3, 4, 1em);
}

or you can set your gutter width globally.

$Herow-default-gutter-width: 1em;
.main {
  // A row, with a 1em gutter
  @include Herow-row();
}

See the main API documentation and the configuration documentation.

Atomic mixins

When designing responsive grid, the atomic mixins allow you to update the grid behaviour.

.main {
  @include Herow-row();
}
.content {
  @include Herow-column(8);
  @media (max-width: 799px) {
    @include Herow-column-width(9);
  }
  @media (max-width: 599px) {
    @include Herow-column-width(12);
  }
}

See the Atomic mixins API documentation.

Atomic classes

With the Herow-class-generator(), you can generate atomic classes, like .row, .col, .col-1 to .col-12, etc.

// Generate atomic classes for a 12 columns grid with 1em of gutter
@include Herow-class-generator(12, 1em); 

You can also play with the class prefix & suffix to genrate classes like .my-row or .row-md. For example:

// Generate default atomic classes
@include Herow-class-generator(12, 1em);
@media (max-width: 799px) {
  // Generate atomic classes for medium screens
  @include Herow-class-generator(12, 1em, '', '-md');
}
@media (max-width: 599px) {
  // Generate atomic classes for tiny screens
  @include Herow-class-generator(12, 1em, '', '-xs');
}

See the Class generator API documentation.
