Freewall is a responsive and cross-browser jQuery plugin for creating dynamic grid layouts for desktop, mobile and tablet. Freewall allows you to create many types of grid layout (flexible layout, images layout, pinterest-like laytout, etc) with nice CSS3 animation effects and call back events.

How it works:

Based on the width (or height) of a container and the width (height) of a cell unit, It will create a virtual matrix. Scaning the matrix at each cell will find a free cell around to made a free area, then try to fit a block element into it. In case no block can fit the gap, it will resize the block to fill the gap (that is one of the options).

Basic Usage:

1. Include jQuery library and jQuery Freewall plugin on the web page

<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/freewall.js"></script>

2. Create the grid layout using unordered list

<ul id="container">
<li class="item"></li>
<li class="item"></li>
<li class="item"></li>
<li class="item"></li>
<li class="item"></li>
<li class="item"></li>
<li class="item"></li>
</ul>

3. Style the layout

<style type="text/css">
#container {
width: 80%;
margin: auto;
}
.item {
background: rgb(135, 199, 135);
width: 320px;
height: 320px;
}
</style>

4. Call the plugin

<script> $(function() { var wall = new freewall("#container"); wall.fitWidth(); }); </script>

5. Options

animate: false,
cellW: 100, // function(container) {return 100;}
cellH: 100, // function(container) {return 100;}
delay: 0, // slowdown active block;
engine: 'giot', // 'giot' is a person name;
fixSize: null, // resize + adjust = fill gap;
//fixSize: 0, resize but keep ratio = no fill gap;
//fixSize: 1, no resize + no adjust = no fill gap;
gutterX: 15, // width spacing between blocks;
gutterY: 15, // height spacing between blocks;
keepOrder: false,
