Readme

Split Grid CI Dependencies File size
The spiritual successor of Split.js, built for CSS Grid.
- Zero Deps - Tiny: Weights 2kb gzipped. - Fast: No overhead or attached window event listeners, uses pure CSS for resizing. - Unopinionated: Only modifies grid-template-* rules, the rest of the layout is up to you.

Installation

Yarn:
$ yarn add split-grid

npm:
$ npm install --save split-grid

Include with a module bundler like rollup or webpack:
// using ES6 modules
import Split from 'split-grid'

// using CommonJS modules
var Split = require('split-grid')

The UMD build is also available on unpkg:
<script src="https://unpkg.com/split-grid/dist/split-grid.js"></script>

You can find the library on window.Split.

Example

import Split from 'split-grid'

Split({
  columnGutters: [{
    track: 1,
    element: document.querySelector('.column-1'),
  }, {
    track: 3,
    element: document.querySelector('.column-3'),
  }],
  rowGutters: [{
    track: 1,
    element: document.querySelector('.row-1'),
  }]
})

Reference

Split(options: Options)

Supported CSS values

Current CSS values that are supported in grid-template, grid-template-columns, grid-template-rows:
- x fr - x px - x % - x repeat
Not supported (yet):
- auto - other CSS values (em, vmin, cm, etc)

Options

Most of the options can be specified as option, columnOption and rowOption. This allows default option values to be set for both, or specified individually for each axis.
columnGutters: [{ element: HTMLElement, track: number }]
An array of objects, with element and track keys. element is the element in the grid to enable as a draggable gutter. track is the grid track the gutter element is positioned on. These must match.
rowGutters: [{ element: HTMLElement, track: number }]
An array of objects, with element and track keys. element is the element in the grid to enable as a draggable gutter. track is the grid track the gutter element is positioned on. These must match.
minSize: number
The minimum size in pixels for all tracks. Default: 0
columnMinSize: number
The minimum size in pixels for all tracks. Default: options.minSize
rowMinSize: number
The minimum size in pixels for all tracks. Default: options.minSize
columnMinSizes: { [track: number]: number }
An object keyed by track index, with values set to the minimum size in pixels for the track at that index. Allows individual minSizes to be specified by track. Note this option is plural with an s, while the two fallback options are singular. Default: options.columnMinSize
rowMinSizes: { [track: number]: number }
An object keyed by track index, with values set to the minimum size in pixels for the track at that index. Allows individual minSizes to be specified by track. Note this option is plural with an s, while the two fallback options are singular. Default: options.rowMinSize
snapOffset: number
Snap to minimum size at this offset in pixels. Set to 0 to disable snap. Default: 30
columnSnapOffset: number
Snap to minimum size at this offset in pixels. Set to 0 to disable snap. Default: options.snapOffset
rowSnapOffset: number
Snap to minimum size at this offset in pixels. Set to 0 to disable snap. Default: options.snapOffset
dragInterval: number
Drag this number of pixels at a time. Defaults to 1 for smooth dragging, but can be set to a pixel value to give more control over the resulting sizes. Default: 1
columnDragInterval: number
Drag this number of pixels at a time. Defaults to 1 for smooth dragging, but can be set to a pixel value to give more control over the resulting sizes. Default: options.dragInterval
rowDragInterval: number
Drag this number of pixels at a time. Defaults to 1 for smooth dragging, but can be set to a pixel value to give more control over the resulting sizes. Default: options.dragInterval
cursor: string
Cursor to show while dragging. Defaults to 'col-resize' for column gutters and 'row-resize' for row gutters.
columnCursor: string
Cursor to show while dragging. Default: 'col-resize'
rowCursor: string
Cursor to show while dragging. Default: 'row-resize'
onDrag: (direction: 'row' | 'column', track: number, gridTemplateStyle: string) => void
Called continously on drag. For process intensive code, add a debounce function to rate limit this callback. gridTemplateStyle is the computed CSS value for grid-template-column or grid-template-row, depending on direction.
onDragStart: (direction: 'row' | 'column', track: number) => void
Called on drag start.
onDragEnd: (direction: 'row' | 'column', track: number) => void
Called on drag end.
writeStyle: (grid: HTMLElement, gridTemplateProp: 'grid-template-column' | 'grid-template-row', gridTemplateStyle: string) => void
Called to update the CSS properties of the grid element. Must eventually apply the CSS value to the CSS prop, or the grid will not change. gridTemplateStyle is the computed CSS value of CSS rule gridTemplateProp.
Default:
writeStyle: (grid, gridTemplateProp, gridTemplateStyle) => {
  grid.style[gridTemplateProp] = gridTemplateStyle
}
gridTemplateColumns gridTemplateRows
Helper options for determining initial CSS values for grid-template-columns and grid-template-rows. Most of the time this option is not needed, as Split Grid reads the CSS rules applied to the grid element, but security settings may prevent that, for example, when the CSS is served from a 3rd-party domain. This is ONLY NEEDED if the default method of reading the CSS values errors. This option does not immediately apply CSS rules, it's only used on drag.

API

const split = Split(options: Options)

Split Grid returns an instance with a couple of functions. The instance is returned on creation.
split.addColumnGutter(element: HTMLElement, track: number)
Adds a draggable row gutter. The element must be a direct descendant of the element with grid layout, and positioned in the specified track.
const grid = document.querySelector('.grid')
const gutter = document.createElement('div')

grid.appendChild(gutter)  // append to DOM
split.addColumnGutter(gutter, 1)  // add to Split Grid
split.addRowGutter(element: HTMLElement, track: number)
Adds a draggable row gutter. The element must be a direct descendant of the element with grid layout, and positioned in the specified track.
const grid = document.querySelector('.grid')
const gutter = document.createElement('div')

grid.appendChild(gutter)  // append to DOM
split.addRowGutter(gutter, 1)  // add to Split Grid
split.removeColumnGutter(track: number, immediate?: true)
Removes event listeners from a column gutter by track number. If immediate = false is passed, event handlers are removed after dragging ends. If a gutter isn't currently being dragged, it's event handlers are removed immediately.
split.removeRowGutter(track: number, immediate?: true)
Removes event listeners from a row gutter by track number. If immediate = false is passed, event handlers are removed after dragging ends. If a gutter isn't currently being dragged, it's event handlers are removed immediately.
split.destroy(immediate?: true)
Destroy the instance by removing the attached event listeners. If immediate = false is passed, the instance is destroyed after dragging ends. If a gutter isn't currently being dragged, it's destroyed immediately.

Migrating from Split.js

Bring your own gutters

In Split.js, gutter elements were created by Split.js and inserted in to the DOM. This is not the case in Split Grid. Create the gutter elements in the HTML as children of the grid element, and lay them out in the tracks like any other element. Pass the gutter elements in the options with their track index.
Split.js
Split(options) // gutters created implicitly

Split Grid
Gutters are part of the grid layout:
<div class="grid">
    <div>Column One</div>
    <div class="gutter-column-1"></div>
    <div>Column Two</div>
    <div class="gutter-column-3"></div>
    <div>Column Three</div>
    <div>Row One</div>
    <div class="gutter-row-1"></div>
    <div>Row Two</div>
</div>

Split({ // gutters specified in options
    columnGutters: [{
        track: 1,
        element: document.querySelector('.gutter-column-1'),
    }, {
        track: 3,
        element: document.querySelector('.gutter-column-3'),
    }],
    rowGutters: [{
        track: 1,
        element: document.querySelector('.gutter-row-1'),
    }]
})

CSS values replace sizes option

CSS grid layout offers more flexibility than Split.js's percentage values, so Split Grid uses the grid-template values directly. Instead of setting the initial sizes as an option in Javascript, set the initial sizes in CSS.
Split.js
Split({
    sizes: [50, 50]
})

Split Grid
<div style="grid-template-columns: 1fr 10px 1fr"></div>

or
> document.querySelector('.grid').style['grid-template-columns'] = '1fr 10px 1fr'

split.getSizes() is replaced by CSS values

Likewise, the .getSizes() function is replaced by reading the CSS values directly.
Split.js
> split.getSizes()
[50, 50]

Split Grid
> document.querySelector('.grid').style['grid-template-columns']
"1fr 10px 1fr"

split.setSizes() is replaced by CSS values

In the same way, the .getSizes() function is replaced by setting the CSS values directly.
Split.js
> split.setSizes([50, 50])

Split Grid
> document.querySelector('.grid').style['grid-template-columns'] = '1fr 10px 1fr'

split.destroy() has different parameters in Split Grid

Since there's no styles or gutters added by Split Grid, there's no need for Split.js' preserveStyles and preserveGutters parameters. Instead, .destroy() takes one parameter, immediate: boolean, whether to wait until the gutter has stopped dragging before removing event listeners.
