Install via npm

Quick started

git clone
cd use-grid

npm run docs

Simple example

switch by media query

const isMedium = useMedia({ minWidth:720, maxWidth:960 });
const [ fontSize ] = useGrid({ xs:"2em", md:"50px", xl:"75px" });
const [ width,set ] = useGrid({ xs: 8/9 , md: 500 , lg: 750 });
const handler = () => set((p)=>({md: p.lg, lg:}))

render (
style={{fontSize, width}}

use grid system

const face = ['🙄','🤣','🧐','🤯','🤮'];
const ref = React.useRef(null)
const [ws] = useGrids(face.length, (i)=>(i%2===0)
? { md: 1/5, xl: i/face.length/3 }
: { md: 1/10, xl: i/face.length/6 }
, [ref]);

render (
<div ref={ref} style={{display:"grid", width:"95%"}}>
{ (emoji, i) =>
<div style={{width:ws[i]}}>{emoji}</div>

use view system

import React from 'react';
import {useGrid, useView} from 'use-grid';

const ref1 = React.useRef(null)
const ref2 = React.useRef(null)

const isView = useView(ref1)
const [fontSize, set] = useGrid({md:100,lg:200}, [ref1])
const [background] = useGrid({
none:"#000", init:"#fff",
onView: bool =>
set(bool? {md:150, lg:250}
: {md:100, lg:200})
}, [ref1, ref2])

render (
<div style={{fontSize,background}}>
<div ref={ref1}>{'😎'}</div>
{[...Array(10).keys()].map(i =>
<div key={i}>{isView?'😘':'🤣'}</div>
<div ref={ref2}>{'😎'}</div>

Performance Pitfalls

Grid prefix

The grid system uses containers, rows and columns to control layout and alignment.

same works

const width1 = useGrid({sm:1, md:1/2, lg:"750px"})
const width2 = useGrid({sm:"100%",md:"50%",lg:"750px"})
const width3 = useGrid([["sm","100%"], ["md":"50%"], ["lg":"750px"]])
const width4 = useGrid([[{ maxWidth:"576px"}, "100%"],
[{minWidth:"576px",maxWidth:"768px"}, "50%"],
[{minWidth:"768px" },"750px"]])
const width5 = useGrid([[ "max-width:576px", "100%"],
["min-width:576px and max-width:768px", "50%"],
["min-width:768px" ,"750px"]])
const width =
|| width1
|| width2
|| width3
|| width4
|| width5

render (
<div style={{width}} />
