React-Grid-Layout is a grid layout system much like Packery or Gridster, for React.

Unlike those systems, it is responsive and supports breakpoints. Breakpoint layouts can be provided by the user or autogenerated.

RGL is React-only and does not require jQuery.

If you have a feature request, please add it as an issue or make a pull request. See also the TODOs.

    • Performance: on / off, note paint (green) as % of time


Use ReactGridLayout like any other component.

var ReactGridLayout = require('react-grid-layout');
render: function() {
  // layout is an array of objects, see the demo
  var layout = getOrGenerateLayout();
  return (
    <ReactGridLayout className="layout" layout={layout}
      cols={12} rowHeight={30}>
      <div key={1}>1</div>
      <div key={2}>2</div>
      <div key={3}>3</div>

You can also set layout properties directly on the children:

var ReactGridLayout = require('react-grid-layout');
render: function() {
  return (
    <ReactGridLayout className="layout" cols={12} rowHeight={30}>
      <div key={1} _grid={{x: 0, y: 0, w: 1, h: 2}}>1</div>
      <div key={2} _grid={{x: 1, y: 0, w: 1, h: 2}}>2</div>
      <div key={3} _grid={{x: 2, y: 0, w: 1, h: 2}}>3</div>

Usage without Browserify/Webpack

A module usable in a <script> tag is included here. It uses a UMD shim and excludes React, so it must be otherwise available in your application, either via RequireJS or on window.React.

Responsive Usage

To make RGL responsive, use the <ResponsiveReactGridLayout> element:

var ResponsiveReactGridLayout = require('react-grid-layout').Responsive;
render: function() {
  // {lg: layout1, md: layout2, ...}
  var layouts = getLayoutsFromSomewhere();
  return (
    <ResponsiveReactGridLayout className="layout" layouts={layouts}
      breakpoints={{lg: 1200, md: 996, sm: 768, xs: 480, xxs: 0}}
      cols={{lg: 12, md: 10, sm: 6, xs: 4, xxs: 2}}>
      <div key={1}>1</div>
      <div key={2}>2</div>
      <div key={3}>3</div>

When in responsive mode, you should supply at least one breakpoint via the layouts property.

When using layouts, it is best to supply as many breakpoints as possible, especially the largest one. If the largest is provided, RGL will attempt to interpolate the rest.

For the time being, it is not possible to supply responsive mappings via the _grid property on individual items, but that is coming soon.

Grid Layout Props

RGL supports the following properties (see the source for the final word on this):

// Basic props
// If true, the container height swells and contracts to fit contents
autoSize: React.PropTypes.bool,
// {name: pxVal}, e.g. {lg: 1200, md: 996, sm: 768, xs: 480}
breakpoints: React.PropTypes.object,
// Number of columns in this layout.
cols: React.PropTypes.number,
// A selector that will not be draggable.
draggableCancel: React.PropTypes.string,
// A selector for the draggable handler
draggableHandle: React.PropTypes.string,
// If true, the layout will compact vertically
verticalCompact: React.PropTypes.bool,
// Layout is an array of object with the format:
// {x: Number, y: Number, w: Number, h: Number}
// The index into the layout must match the key used on each item component.
// If you choose to use custom keys, you can specify that key in the layout
// array objects like so:
// {i: String, x: Number, y: Number, w: Number, h: Number}
layout: React.PropTypes.array,
// This allows setting the initial width on the server side.
initialWidth: React.PropTypes.number,
// Margin between items [x, y] in px.
margin: React.PropTypes.array,
// Rows have a static height, but you can change this based on breakpoints
// if you like.
rowHeight: React.PropTypes.number,
// Flags
isDraggable: React.PropTypes.bool,
isResizable: React.PropTypes.bool,
// Uses CSS3 translate() instead of position top/left.
// This makes about 6x faster paint performance
useCSSTransforms: React.PropTypes.bool,
// If false, you should supply width yourself. Good if you want to debounce
// resize events or reuse a handler from somewhere else.
listenToWindowResize: React.PropTypes.bool,
// Callbacks
// Callback so you can save the layout.
// Calls back with (currentLayout, allLayouts). allLayouts are keyed by breakpoint.
onLayoutChange: React.PropTypes.func,
// All callbacks below have signature (layout, oldItem, newItem, placeholder, e).
// 'start' and 'stop' callbacks pass `undefined` for 'placeholder'.
// Calls when drag starts.
onDragStart: React.PropTypes.func,
// Calls on each drag movement.
onDrag: React.PropTypes.func,
// Calls when drag is complete.
onDragStop: React.PropTypes.func,
// Calls when resize starts.
onResizeStart: React.PropTypes.func,
// Calls when resize movement happens.
onResize: React.PropTypes.func,
// Calls when resize is complete.
onResizeStop: React.PropTypes.func

Responsive Grid Layout Props

The responsive grid layout can be used instead. It supports all of the props above, excepting layout. The new properties and changes are:

// {name: pxVal}, e.g. {lg: 1200, md: 996, sm: 768, xs: 480}
// Breakpoint names are arbitrary but must match in the cols and layouts objects.
breakpoints: React.PropTypes.object,
// # of cols. This is a breakpoint -> cols map, e.g. {lg: 12, md: 10, ...}
cols: React.PropTypes.object,
// layouts is an object mapping breakpoints to layouts.
// e.g. {lg: Layout, md: Layout, ...}
layouts: React.PropTypes.object
// Callbacks
// Calls back with breakpoint and new # cols
onBreakpointChange: React.PropTypes.func,
// Callback so you can save the layout.
// Calls back with (currentLayout, allLayouts). allLayouts are keyed by breakpoint.
onLayoutChange: React.PropTypes.func

Grid Item Props

RGL supports the following properties on grid items or layout items. When initializing a grid, build a layout array (as in the first example above), or attach this object as the _grid property to each of your child elements (as in the second example).

Note that if a grid item is provided but incomplete (missing one of x, y, w, or h), an error will be thrown so you can correct your layout.

If no properties are provided for a grid item, one will be generated with a width and height of 1.

You can set minimums and maximums for each dimension. This is for resizing; it of course has no effect if resizing is disabled. Errors will be thrown if your mins and maxes overlap incorrectly, or your initial dimensions are out of range.

Any GridItem properties defined directly on the layout item will take precedence over globally-set options. For example, if the layout has the property isDraggable: false, but the grid item has isDraggable: true, the item will be draggable.

  // These are all in grid units, not pixels
  x: React.PropTypes.number.isRequired,
  y: React.PropTypes.number.isRequired,
  w: React.PropTypes.number.isRequired,
  h: React.PropTypes.number.isRequired,
  minW: React.PropTypes.number,
  maxW: React.PropTypes.number,
  minH: React.PropTypes.number,
  maxH: React.PropTypes.number,
  // If true, equal to `isDraggable: false, isResizable: false`.
  static: React.PropTypes.bool,
  // If false, will not be draggable. Overrides `static`.
  isDraggable: React.PropTypes.bool,
  // If false, will not be resizable. Overrides `static`.
  isResizable: React.PropTypes.bool,
  className: React.PropTypes.string,
  // Selector for draggable handle
  handle: React.PropTypes.string,
  // Selector for draggable cancel (see react-draggable)
  cancel: React.PropTypes.string
