Vanilla JavaScript Grid navigation

I have created a Vanilla JavaScript Grid navigation. This has been built using https://github.com/guitarbeerchocolate/vanilla-js-component and resides at https://github.com/guitarbeerchocolate/vanilla-js-grid-navigation
It employs ES6, BEM and SASS.

CSS Grid Layout accordion

This example highlights an important difference required by CSS Grid Layout to function properly. I've put it in red to make it obvious. If this line used the auto width setting, then as the accordion-content items expanded, they would mess up the layout. By using fractions (fr), we force the columns to retain their widths.

CSS Grid Layout responsive navigation

It's possible there is a better way of doing this. There are so many ways to do things using CSS Grid Layout. Anyway, here goes.

CSS Grid Layout by example

In this blog entry, I am going to be using the CSS Grid Layout system available as standard, through the W3C.
There are many blog and vlogs about this, so why bother?
I would like to deliver a simple an consistent approach to all CSS Grid Layout challenges.
Before we make our first grid, I'm going to put a couple of things in place:
  • A CSS class called ".grid" thus : .grid { display: grid; grid-gap: 0.5em; } This enable us to create multiple grids in a row and differentiate between each element, thus: <div class="grid"></div> 
  • A CSS class called ".grid-element" thus : .grid-element { background: #555; color: white; padding: 1em; margin: 0.5em 0; } This enable us to create multiple grid elements which can be clearly seen thus: <div class="grid-element">.grid-element</div> 

grid-1

Our first grid is the simplest. It containes only 1 column.

CSS

#grid-1 { grid-template-columns: auto; }

HTML

<div class="grid" id="grid-1">
    <div class="grid-element">.grid-element</div>
</div>

grid-2

Our next grid is also simple. It contains 2 columns of equal width, and 1 row.

CSS

#grid-2 { grid-template-columns: auto auto; }

HTML

<div class="grid" id="grid-2">
    <div class="grid-element">.grid-element</div>
    <div class="grid-element">.grid-element</div>
</div>

grid-3

Our next grid is also simple. It contains 2 columns, one of 66.6% width, and 1 row.

CSS

#grid-3 { grid-template-columns: 66.6% auto; }

HTML

<div class="grid" id="grid-3">
    <div class="grid-element">.grid-element</div>
    <div class="grid-element">.grid-element</div>
</div>

grid-4

Our next grid is slightly more complicated. It contains 2 columns, one of 66.6% width using the fraction (fr) unit. In the first column, there is 1 row. In the second column, there are 2 rows.

CSS

#grid-4 { grid-template-columns: 2fr 1fr; } #grid-4-second-container { grid-template-rows: auto auto; }

HTML

<div class="grid" id="grid-4">
    <div class="grid-element">.grid-element</div>
    <div id="grid-4-second-container">
        <div class="grid-element">.grid-element</div>
        <div class="grid-element">.grid-element</div>
    </div>
</div>

grid-5

Our next grid is a variation on grid-4. It contains 2 columns, one of 66.6% width using the fraction (fr) unit. In the first column, there are 2 rows. In the second column, there is 1 row.

CSS

#grid-5 { grid-template-columns: 2fr 1fr; } #grid-5-first-container { grid-template-rows: auto auto; }

HTML

<div class="grid" id="grid-5">
    <div id="grid-5-first-container">
        <div class="grid-element">.grid-element</div>
        <div class="grid-element">.grid-element</div>
    </div>
    <div class="grid-element">.grid-element</div>
</div>

grid-6

Our next grid is a variation on grid-4. It contains 3 columns of equal width. In the first column, there is 1 row. In the second column, there are 2 row. In the third column there is 1 row.

CSS

#grid-6 { grid-template-columns: auto auto auto; } #grid-6-middle-container { grid-template-rows: auto auto; }

HTML

<div class="grid" id="grid-6">
    <div class="grid-element">.grid-element</div>
    <div id="grid-6-middle-container">
        <div class="grid-element">.grid-element</div>
        <div class="grid-element">.grid-element</div>
    </div>
    <div class="grid-element">.grid-element</div>
</div>

grid-7

Our next grid is slightly more complicated. It contains 3 columns of equal width. In the first column, there is 1 row. In the second column, there are 2 row. In the third column there is 1 row.

CSS

#grid-7 { grid-template-columns: 2fr 1fr; } #grid-7-column-1-container { display: inline-grid; grid-template-rows: auto auto; } #grid-7-row-2-container { display: inline-grid; grid-template-columns: auto auto; grid-gap: 0.5em; }

HTML

<div class="grid" id="grid-7">
    <div id="grid-7-column-1-container">
        <div class="grid-element">.grid-element</div>
        <div id="grid-7-row-2-container">
             <div class="grid-element">.grid-element</div>
            <div class="grid-element">.grid-element</div>
        </div>
    </div>
    <div class="grid-element">.grid-element</div>
</div>

grid-8

Our next grid makes use of the "grid-template-areas" and "grid-area" properties. Here I use it to create a standard layout of Logo (picture), Header, Nav, Main content area, Sidebar and Footer.

CSS

#grid-8 { grid-template-columns: repeat(auto-fill, 1fr); grid-template-areas: "pic hd hd hd hd hd hd hd hd" "nv nv nv nv nv n-home n-about n-portfolio n-contact" "main main main main main main sd sd sd" "ft ft ft ft ft ft ft ft ft"; } picture { grid-area: pic; } header { grid-area: hd; } nav { grid-area: nv; } a#contact, a#about, a#home, a#portfolio { text-align: center; } a#home { grid-area: n-home; } a#about { grid-area: n-about; } a#portfolio { grid-area: n-portfolio; } a#contact { grid-area: n-contact; } main { grid-area: main; } aside { grid-area: sd; } footer { grid-area: ft; }

HTML

<div class="grid" id="grid-8">
    <picture class="grid-element">Picture</picture>
    <header class="grid-element">Header</header>
    <nav class="grid-element">Nav</nav>
    <a href="#" id="home" class="grid-element">Home</a>
    <a href="#" id="about" class="grid-element">About</a>
    <a href="#" id="contact" class="grid-element">Contact</a>
    <a href="#" id="portfolio" class="grid-element">Portfolio</a>
    <main class="grid-element">Main</main>
    <aside class="grid-element">Aside</aside>
    <footer class="grid-element">Footer</footer>
</div>

grid-9

Our next grid is a copy of grid-4. This time I'm applying a little fluidity using a media query.

CSS

#grid-9 { grid-template-columns: 2fr 1fr; } #grid-9-second-container { grid-template-rows: auto auto; } @media (min-width: 768px) and (max-width: 1024px) { #grid-9 { grid-template-columns: auto; } }

HTML

<div class="grid" id="grid-9">
    <div class="grid-element">Doctrina amet deserunt excepteur do est laborum hic excepteur. Labore constias ne tractavissent. Vidisse malis aute litteris magna.Ubi quo sempiternum non doctrina aut export. Ex quae irure sed proident hic malis incurreret sed adipisicing. Minim pariatur ubi cillum quem sed doctrina quid iudicem singulis, de quo consectetur, laborum se nisi incurreret.
    </div>
    <div id="grid-4-second-container">
        <div class="grid-element">Doctrina amet deserunt excepteur do est laborum hic excepteur. Labore constias ne tractavissent. Vidisse malis aute litteris magna.Ubi quo sempiternum non doctrina aut export. Ex quae irure sed proident hic malis incurreret sed adipisicing.

        </div>
        <div class="grid-element">Doctrina amet deserunt excepteur do est laborum hic excepteur. Labore constias ne tractavissent.

Using jQuery corners and simple grids to begin interesting layouts

Here, I have taken techniques from 2 of my previous posts to create a layout. It doesn't look great, but you should be able to see the potential. I have once again, used the jQuery rounded corners plugin at http://jquery.malsup.com/corner/ 

See demo.

Copy and paste the code into a HTML file...

$(document).ready(function()

Simple Grid Layout

I've avoided using grids in CSS layouts for the most part. Whenever, looked into them, it always seemed more prescriptive than it should be. Below is an example of a grid system using the div tag which I hope, seems relatively straight forward. All columns are floated to the left. The '.first' class clears left so that it moves to a new row. I made a slight adjustment to the three column row so that it would be pixel perfect with the others by using the first column 1 pixel shorter. This is something which you need to take into account with columns which don't divide to a whole number.

See demo.
