David is responsible for jQuery Masonry, if you’re unfamiliar with it by name, that’s okay, you’ve probably seen it in use in the wild. Here’s a quick excerpt from the Masonry website:
Masonry is a dynamic grid layout plugin for jQuery. Think of it as the flip-side of CSS floats. Whereas floating arranges elements horizontally then vertically, Masonry arranges elements vertically, positioning each element in the next open spot in the grid. The result minimizes vertical gaps between elements of varying height, just like a mason fitting stones in a wall.
Isotope is described as “An exquisite jQuery plugin for magical layouts” on it’s website. Think of isotope as the big brother to Masonry. David is also the man behind it – offering it up as a commercial package from metafizzy.co. We talked briefly about supporting side projects and what his ideas for isotope are.
