A fairly common web interface feature is the dynamic view switcher. On product pages or blog archives you’ll sometimes find buttons to change the layout from display lists to smaller grids. In this tutorial I’ve built a simpler example using basic CSS and some jQuery commands.
I’ll be using interface elements from the Zephirro E-Commerce UI Set which include buttons and thumbnail photos. Feel free to demo the code yourself and try out a similar experience on your own website. This is a tricky effect to nail down, but when done properly your users will love the unique experience.
This tutorial should give you a strong introduction to manipulating your page layouts with jQuery. Even the simple action of mixing up classes & IDs can boldly enhance the user experience.
A jQuery plugin to randomize the display of objects in a grid.
Wookmark is a free jQuery plugin for creating dynamic and multi column layouts.
This jQuery plugin dynamically creates boxes with random heights, it detects the size of the window and automatically organizes the boxes into columns approximately of equal height.
Today we want to create a template with a fullscreen grid of images and content areas. The idea is to have a draggable grid that shows boxes of thumbnails and menu like items. Once clicked, the thumbnail will expand to the full size image and the menu item box will expand to a fullscreen content area.
Today we want to share a neat experimental portfolio template with you. The main idea is to have a grid layout that we create with jQuery Masonry. Clicking to view more, we expand the according item to fullscreen in order to show a longer description of the item and a representative fullscreen background image.
Mosaiqy is a jQuery plugin for presenting images in a Mosaic-like grid interface.The images are displayed inside randomly moving columns and rows where CSS3 transitions are used for the animations.Once a thumbnail is clicked, the original version is loaded inside the grid with a nice slideIn/Out effect.
It retrieves images from a JSON/JSONP data source which makes integrating with image hosting services pretty easy and there are already demos for Flickr, Instagram and Panoramio.
In this image gallery, I wanted to create the effect of intersecting lines to highlight the selected image in a grid like a crosshair. I used differing opacities of images horizontally across from the current image and vertically above or below the image to achieve this effect. This gallery uses jQuery Masonry to achieve the animated resizing effect of the grid.
