Masonry/Mosaic Style Grid System With Animations

mosaic-elements.js is a small and configurable jQuery layout plugin to generate a Masonry (default) or Mosaic (equal height) style Grid System with fancy reveal animations.

How to use it:

1. Add grid items with the CSS class of mosaic-item to the mosaic container as follows:

<div id="mosaic">
  <div class="mosaic-item">
    Item 1
  <div class="mosaic-item">
    Item 2
  <div class="mosaic-item">
    Item 3

2. Load the jQuery mosaic-elements.js plugin's files in the document.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="src/style.css" />
<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="src/jquery.mosaic-elements.js"></script>

3. Call the plugin and done.


4. Use the Mosaic (equal height) mode instead.


  // set to false to enable the Mosaic mode
  'masonry': true,

  // correction for calculating the transition to the next column in the container
  'masonry_shift': 0

5. Config the animation when rendering grid items on the page.


  // minimum of rotation from in degree
  'rotate_min': -180, 

  // maximum of rotation to in degree
  'rotate_max': 180, 

  // minimum of duration from in px
  'duration_min': 60, 

  // maximum of duration to in px
  'duration_max': 600


6. Override the default selectors of parent & child elements.


  // parent container
  'container': '#mosaic',

  // grid item
  'elements': '.mosaic-item'
