How to use it:

1. Create a hexagon grid layout from an html unordered list.

<div class="hex-container">
  <ul class="hex-grid">
    <li class="hex-grid__item">
      Item 1
    </li>
    <li class="hex-grid__item">
      Item 2
    </li>
    <li class="hex-grid__item">
      Item 3
    </li>
    ...
    <li class="hex-grid__item">
      Item n
    </li>
  </ul>
</div>

2. The CSS rules to style the hexagon grid.

.hex-container { overflow: hidden; }

.hex-grid {
  list-style: none;
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  width: 5000px;
}

.hex-grid__item {
  float: left;
  width: 200px;
  width: calc(100vw / 6);
  -webkit-clip-path: polygon(50% 0%, 100% 25%, 100% 75%, 50% 100%, 0% 75%, 0% 25%);
  clip-path: polygon(50% 0%, 100% 25%, 100% 75%, 50% 100%, 0% 75%, 0% 25%);
  border-left: 2px solid #fff;
  border-right: 2px solid #fff;
  -webkit-transform: translateZ(0);
  transform: translateZ(0);
}

.hex-grid__item:hover { opacity: 0.4; }

3. Make it responsive.

@media (max-width: 768px) {

.hex-grid { width: 100%; }
}

@media (min-width: 1200px) {

.hex-grid__item {
  border-left: 4px solid #fff;
  border-right: 4px solid #fff;
}
}

@media (max-width: 768px) {

.hex-grid__item {
  width: calc(100vw / 2);
  margin-bottom: calc(100vw / -7.5);
}

.hex-grid__item:nth-child(3n+1) {
  margin-left: calc(100vw / 4);
  clear: left;
  opacity: 0.4;
}

.hex-grid__item:nth-child(3n+1):last-child { margin-bottom: 0; }
}

@media (min-width: 768px) {

.hex-grid__item:nth-child(7), .hex-grid__item:nth-child(14) { clear: left; }

.hex-grid__item:nth-child(1), .hex-grid__item:nth-child(6), .hex-grid__item:nth-child(7), .hex-grid__item:nth-child(13), .hex-grid__item:nth-child(14), .hex-grid__item:nth-child(19) {
  opacity: 0.4;
  z-index: -1;
}

.hex-grid__item:nth-child(n+7):nth-child(-n+13) {
  position: relative;
  left: -105px;
  left: calc(100vw/-12);
  top: -58px;
  top: calc(100vw/-24);
  margin-bottom: -111px;
  margin-bottom: calc(100vw/-12);
}
}

4. Include jQuery library and TweenMax.js at the bottom of the html page.

<script src="/path/to/jquery-2.1.4.min.js"></script> 
<script src="/path/to/TweenMax.min.js"></script> 

5. The core JavaScript for the hexagon grid layout.

var HexGrid = {
  $container: $('.hex-container'),
  $gridItems: $('.hex-grid__item:not(.no-refresh)'),

  animation: {
    duration: 0.5,

    visible: {
      autoAlpha: 1,
      delay: 0.05,
      scale: 1
    },

    hidden: {
      autoAlpha: 0,
      scale: 0.8
    }
  },

  init: function() {
    this.$refreshGrid;
  },

  calculate: function() {
    var w = this.$container.width(),
        rowCount = 6,
        $newRow = $('.hex-grid__item:nth-child(n+7):nth-child(-n+13)');

    $('.hex-grid__item').css('width', w / rowCount);

    $newRow.css({
      'left': w / -(rowCount * 2),
      'top': w / -(rowCount * 4),
      'margin-bottom': w / -(rowCount * 2)
    });
  },

  refreshGrid: function(e) {
    var _ = HexGrid,
        i = 0;

    e.preventDefault();

    _.animation.visible.delay = 0.3;

    TweenLite.to(_.$gridItems, _.animation.duration, _.animation.hidden);

    for (i; i < _.$gridItems.length; i++) {
      _.animation.visible.delay += 0.05;
      TweenLite.to(_.$gridItems[i], _.animation.duration, _.animation.visible);
    }
  }
};

6. Initialize the hexagon grid layout.

HexGrid.init();
