Arrange grid elements into tiles. Works great if most of your columns match in width, and if you keep your wider ones on top...
(function ($) {
'use strict';
$.fn.wmTiles = function () {
var container = $(this),
tiles = container.children(),
arrange = function () {
var places = [{
t: 0,
l: 0,
w: container.width()
}],
p = 0,
n,
updateIndexes = function () {
var i;
for (i = 0; i < places.length; i += 1) {
if (i === 0 || places[i].t < places[p].t) {
p = i;
}
}
switch (p) {
case 0:
n = p + 1;
break;
case places.length - 1:
n = p - 1;
break;
default:
n = places[p + 1].t < places[p - 1].t ? p + 1 : p - 1;
}
},
fit = function (tile) {
var w = $(tile).outerWidth(),
h = $(tile).height();
if (w < places[p].w + 3) {
if (w < places[p].w) {
places.splice(p + 1, 0, {
t: places[p].t,
l: places[p].l + w,
w: places[p].w - w
});
places[p].w = w;
}
$(tile).css({
position: 'absolute',
top: places[p].t,
left: places[p].l
});
places[p].t += h;
if (places[p].t > container.height()) {
container.height(places[p].t);
}
updateIndexes();
return true;
}
return false;
},
merge = function () {
places[n].w += places[p].w;
places[n].l = places[(p < n) ? p : n].l;
places.splice(p, 1);
updateIndexes();
};
tiles.removeAttr('style');
if (tiles.css('float') === 'left') {
container.height(0);
$.map(tiles, function (tile) {
while (!fit(tile)) { merge(); }
});
} else {
container.height('auto');
}
};
container.css({ position: 'relative' });
arrange();
$('img', container).load(arrange);
$(window).resize(arrange);
};
}(jQuery));
