Gridle 3.0.0

One grid system to rule them all (.scss)

Gridle is a set of complete and simple settings, mixins and classes that make the creation and usage of grid systems (even complex ones) really simple. All of this with full responsive capabilities

Table of content


Gridle is available through NPM. To install it, just launch this command line:

npm install git+ --save

Quick start

Importing gridle

import 'node_modules/coffeekraken-gridle/index';

Configure your grid :

@include g-setup( (
    context : 12,
    gutter-width : 20px,
    direction : rtl,
    // etc...
) );

Register states (media queries) (optional) :

@include g-register-state ( mobile , (
    max-width : 480px
) );
@include g-register-state ( tablet , (
    min-width : 481px,
    max-width : 1024px
) ) ;

// even with full custom queries :
@include g-register-state ( landscape, (
    query : "(orientation : landscape)"
) );

Generate all classes :

@include g-classes();

Use your grid in hrml :

<div class="row">
    <div class="gr-12 hide-print">
    <div class="gr-8 gr-12@mobile">
    <div class="gr-4 gr-12@mobile">

Or with mixins :

.row {
    @include g-row();
    margin:0 auto;
#header {
    @include g-grid(12);
#sidebar {
    @include g-grid(8);
    @include g-state( mobile tablet ) {
        @include g-grid(12);
        content : "#{g-current-state-name()}";
#sidebar {
    @include g-set( (
        grid : 4,
        mobile : (
            hide : true
    ) );
@footer {
    @include g-grid(12);

Customize your content look and feel with Gridle mixins

#sidebar {
    background : red;

    @include g-state(mobile) {
        background : green;

Element queries support

Gridle has support for element queries with an easy mixin as all the rest of the framework. Thanks to Marc J Schmidt for his awesome work on the hight efficient "polyfill".

.component {
    background: yellow;

    @include g-eq(+600px) {
        // when the component is 600px and greater
        background: pink;
    @include g-eq(-300px) {
        // when the component is 300px and lower
        background: green;
    @include g-eq(-100px) {
        // when the component is 100px and lower
        background: black;

        .my-nested-element {
            display: none;

Flex as a choice

Gridle allows you to choose between a standard grid generated with float, etc... and a flex one that use the flexbox model. All of this power with the same exact classes.

// default driver
@import 'coffeekraken-gridle/index';
// flex driver
@import 'coffeekraken-gridle/flex';

Generate custom classes

Gridle allows you to generate custom classes that will be available for each of your states. Here's an exemple

@include g-custom-class( ( 'center', '-', '%state' ) ) {
    text-align : center;

This will produce the classes : center, center-mobile, center-tablet and center-landscape automatically

Set multiple grid properties at one

Gridle offer you multiple ways to set grid properties on your elements, the g-set and gridle universal mixin are some of these ways

#sidebar {
    @include g-set((
        grid : 8,
        push : 4,
        tablet : (
            grid : 10,
            push : 2
        mobile : (
            grid : 12,
            push : 0

    // same with universal mixin
    @include gridle(8 push 4 tablet 10 push 2 mobile 12 push 0);

More control with Gridle{.js}

Gridle{.js} allows you to be notified when states changes. It find automatically your states registered in your sass. Simple but powerful

Gridle.on('update', function(updatedStates, activeStates, unactiveStates) {
    // do something here...
// see documentation for more informations...

And more...

That's not finished. Gridle offer you a lot of features and advanced settings that you can discover on the full website. When I say that Gridle is powerful and fully customizable, I really mean it!
