In this post we're going to create a dynamic grid layout that let's you choose how many rows and columns of items are shown. Partly based on the visualization of Google Trends, except that you can add transitions.

How to use it:

1. The HTML

<div class="container demo-3">
<div id="gt-grid-selector" class="gt-grid-control"> <span class="gt-grid-icon"></span>
<div class="gt-grid-select">
<div></div>
<div></div>
<div></div>
<div></div>
<div></div>
<div></div>
<div></div>
<div></div>
<div></div>
<div></div>
<div></div>
<div></div>
<div></div>
<div></div>
<div></div>
<div></div>
<div></div>
<div></div>
<div></div>
<div></div>
<div></div>
<div></div>
<div></div>
<div></div>
<div></div>
</div>
</div>
<div id="gt-grid" class="gt-grid">
<div>
<h1>Dynamic Grid</h1>
</div>
<div>
<div>
<h3>wakame</h3>

2. The CSS

@font-face {

font-weight: normal;
font-style: normal;
}
/* Grid style; make sure parent containers have full height */
.gt-grid {

/* Some content styles */
.gt-grid > div:first-child {

background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-position: 45px 10px;
}
.gt-grid > div h1, .gt-grid > div h3 {

}
.gt-grid > div h1 {

text-align: right;
}
.gt-grid > div h3 {
font-size: 1.05em;

}
/* The little grid to control the number of items */

font-size: 23px;
-webkit-transition: opacity 0.2s;

}
.gt-grid-icon:before {

opacity: 0;
-webkit-transition: all 0.2s;

}
.no-touch .gt-grid-control:hover .gt-grid-icon, .gt-grid-control.gt-grid-control-open .gt-grid-icon {
opacity: 0;
}
.no-touch .gt-grid-control:hover .gt-grid-select, .gt-grid-control.gt-grid-control-open .gt-grid-select {

opacity: 1;
}
.gt-grid-select .gt-grid-selected {

}
.gt-grid-select .gt-grid-hover {
box-shadow: inset 0 0 0 10px rgba(255,255,255,0.1);
}
.demo-3 .gt-grid > div {
background-color: #1abc89;
-webkit-transform: scale(1);
-moz-transform: scale(1);
transform: scale(1);
}
.demo-3 .gt-grid > div.gt-hidden {
-webkit-transform: scale(.6) rotate(45deg);
-moz-transform: scale(.6);
transform: scale(.6);
}

3. Include required javascript library files on the page

<script src="js/classie.js"></script> 
<script src="js/gridSelector.js"></script> 
<script src="js/grid.js"></script> 

4. Initialization

<script>
Grid.init( {
transition : true,
speed : 450,
delay: 20
} );
</script>
