Share on LinkedIn

While designing a web page we take care of fonts, colors and images but often neglect the spaces between the elements. Use of spaces in web designing is extremely important; it helps in scanning different sections of web pages. Their correct application can yield positive outcomes and wrong usage can devastate the aesthetics of a website.

Spaces can be used to get things together and offer legibility and flow, so its effective utilization can deliver high-quality web design. Not to forget that responsive websites are quite in these days so if you want to design one for your London Web Design Company, then auto-arrangement is the best option. It saves your time and rearranges the content without customizing each and every breakpoint.

E-commerce websites or blogs that need to update and change content frequently can make the most of auto-arrangement. Instead of creating a mess and starting from the scratch, there is an easy way out to it. We are talking about Freetile.

Inspired by Masonry, vGrid and Wookmark, Freetile is a jQuery plugin that is designed to produce a perfect and responsive web page layout. It is an open source project that is applied to a container element and is aimed to arrange children in a layout that uses the perfect spaces and packs them in a tight arrangement.

Now you don’t have to bother about selecting a column width according to elements size because Freetile enables any size elements to be packed without fixed-size column grid. Its customizable algorithms to calculate each possible insertion position allows expression of alignment and proximity and other preferences. The jQuery plugin also has smart animation routine that detects the elements to be animated and not.

Don’t worry if you are not good at JavaScript because Freetile is extremely easy to use. It is tested on many websites and used as the engine behind Assemblage and Assemblage Plus for few years. Check it out and let us know about your experiences.
