This is a really good way to put the two things together.
But why it says Bootstrap but than it doesn't use bootstrap grid classes?
I think it would be perfect to use the xs md etc etc classes what work with masonry together, if that it's possible.

From my research i think the class panel would be better.

Why inclusion of AngularJS library messed up everything? I tried including it just after jquery.js

Thanks for sharing! I was wondering how you perfectly centered the masonry grid?

Good job. After hours of trying others, I got this to work with bootstrap thumbnail posts in half an hour (jquery 1.12.4, bootstrap 3.3.7, masonry 3.3.2). Thanks for sharing.

Hi and thank you for posting this, it's excellent. However, I'm having problems with overlapping images in IE8 & 9. Appears .imagesLoaded js can fix this issue but i cannot work out where I add the code in your example... could you please advise if you have a moment??

I am a beginner. Can someone tell me where to create those image+description+links to appear automatically on home grid? Say e.g. 100 posts.
