YUI3 Responsive Grids

An example of making your YUI3 Grids behave responsively.

How does it work?

YUI3 Responsive Grids builds on top of the existing YUI3 Grids implementation. It adds a single new class name called .y-g-responsive. You can use this instead of using .y-g as you normally do. All elements with a class name of .y-u-*-* will automatically become responsive if they are direct descendents of a .y-g-responsive.

These would be responsive:

These would not be responsive:

Some features.

  • Adds media queries (Desktops, Landscape Tablets, Portrait Tablets, Phones) but these are all configurable
  • Collapses elements to 100% if smaller than a certain width (767px by default)
  • Adjusts images to fit on smaller screens
  • Some additional stuff such as offsets and gutters
  • Works with n-columns
