SUIT CSS components-arrange

Build Status

A SUIT CSS component for horizontally and vertically arranging a single row of cells. Includes modifier classes for equal-width cells and gutter-separated cells. Makes use of CSS table layout.

Note: This component has been superseded by flexbox and you may instead find more use from utils-flex.

  • npm: npm install suitcss-components-arrange
  • Download: zip

Available classes

  • Arrange - The core component class
  • Arrange--middle - The modifier class for middle-aligned cells
  • Arrange--bottom - The modifier class for bottom-aligned cells
  • Arrange--equal - The modifier class for equal-width cells
  • Arrange--withGutter - The modifier class for adding a gutter between cells.
  • Arrange-sizeFit - The child class for cells to snap to fit their content
  • Arrange-sizeFill - The child class for cells to expand to fill the remaining space
  • Arrange-row - The child class for a new row of cells (Arrange-sizeFit or Arrange-sizeFill)

Configurable variables

  • --Arrange-gutter-size: the width of the gutter applied by the Arrange--withGutter modifier class.


N.B. This component affects the width of images in cells.

Arrange must only contain Arrange-sizeFit, Arrange-sizeFill, and Arrange-row child nodes.

It's recommended that you only use one Arrange-sizeFill per component instance (unless using the Arrange--equal modifier; see below). The first Arrange-sizeFill in the component's source order will not share the extra space with any subsequent nodes of that class.

Arrange relies on a core component class that is extended by additional modifier classes. This component works best for small-scale UI layout, for example, image-content pairs:

<div class="Arrange Arrange--middle Arrange--withGutter">
  <div class="Arrange-sizeFit">
    <img src="img.png" alt="">
  <div class="Arrange-sizeFill">
    Nicolas Gallagher @necolas

Or for an equally spaced row of buttons or icons, etc.

<ul class="Arrange Arrange--equal">
  <li class="Arrange-sizeFill">
    <button class="Button u-sizeFull">Reply</button>
  <li class="Arrange-sizeFill">
    <button class="Button u-sizeFull">Like</button>
  <li class="Arrange-sizeFill">
    <button class="Button u-sizeFull">Save</button>
  <li class="Arrange-sizeFill">
    <button class="Button u-sizeFull">Remove</button>
