Responsive image Aspect Ratio with calc()
View fluid-aspect-ratio.scss
// Intent:
// Create a calc() function that dynamically changes the padding-bottom
// value for a container than wraps an image to force an aspect ratio.
// For small viewports, the padding bottom value is 56.25% for a 16:9 ratio
// For larger, it goes down to 25% for a really wide, thin image
// This is the way I do it now:
@mixin maintain-ratio($ratio: 1 1) {
@if length($ratio) < 2 or length($ratio) > 2 {

/* The idea:
One list of breakpoints.
One list of type sizes/scales with a corresponding key name.
One function that can iterate and output all type sizes.
One function that can iterate over the breakpoints, find the
matching type size array, and output all breakpoint sizes for that element.

jhogue / SASS font-size-adjust
Created Dec 13, 2012
A SASS function to emulate what font-size-adjust is meant to do. Until it is widely supported, we can use a combination of math and Modernizr to meet the needs. ¶ The value for $font-size-adjust-value in this function is not calculated in the same way as a value for font-size-adjust. In my real-world example, font-size-adjust: .465; would be the…
View SASS font-size-adjust
/* Not widely supported, can't use this yet */
@mixin font-size-adjust {
-webkit-font-size-adjust: 0.465; /* No support yet */
font-size-adjust: 0.465; /* Firefox only */
/* Define these somewhere if you aren't already */
$font-size-adjust-value: 1.15;
$base-font-size: 16px;
