Cascading grid layout library

Masonry works by placing elements in optimal position based on available vertical space, sort of like a mason fitting stones in a wall. You’ve probably seen it in use all over the Internet.

See for complete docs and demos.

With jQuery

  itemSelector: '.grid-item',
  columnWidth: 200

With vanilla JavaScript

// vanilla JS
// init with element
var grid = document.querySelector('.grid');
var msnry = new Masonry( grid, {
  // options...
  itemSelector: '.grid-item',
  columnWidth: 200

// init with selector
var msnry = new Masonry( '.grid', {
  // options...


Add a data-masonry attribute to your element. Options can be set in JSON in the value.

<div class="grid" data-masonry='{ "itemSelector": ".grid-item", "columnWidth": 200 }'>
  <div class="grid-item"></div>
  <div class="grid-item"></div>


Masonry is released under the MIT license. Have at it.
