Google Grid Gallery

A responsive Masonry grid with a gallery view using 3D Transforms. Based on the gallery seen on the Chromebook Getting Started guide by Google.

From our sponsor: Sign up for Mailchimp today.

This Blueprint is a responsive grid gallery based on the gallery by Google for the Chromebook Getting Started guide. In this Blueprint we use Masonry for the grid and 3D transforms for navigating the items. For smaller screens we have some example media queries that adjust the grid layout and also the gallery view.

In the gallery view, the arrow keys can be used to navigate and the view can be closed using the “Esc” key.

Please note that we are using CSS 3D Transforms which are only supported in modern browsers.

The images used in the demo were created using the grafitti shapes by Luke Roberts.

  1. Wow!! What a great stuff, right when it needed most. Thank you so much for this one 🙂

  2. thank you for this. would it be better if the close button would be on each window instead on the top right corner? its difficult to spot.

    • You change:

      .slideshow nav span.nav-close {
      top: 0;
      right: 0;
      padding: 0.5em 1em;
      color: #fff;
      }

  3. That’s pretty neat. Usability problem with clicking outside of the picture it should close the gallery overlay. Other than that it’s pretty rad.

  4. They are just awesome, Thanks countless for such a great work to assist newbies like me in a so effective way.
    It is all the way wonderful just feel lake/shortage/missing of IE <=7 hacks(supports) or alternative css in some cases, or at-least hints for what to do or how to do in case of countering IEs, they are really sleep hunter for newbies like me!!!

    Wish you all the happiness and fitness in life.

  5. The request above is a common request not for any specific ones (help or hints regarding IEs<=7 versions). Would be great! 🙂

  6. great tutorial, nice gallery !
    when clicking a picture, it “zoom’s in” on that picture, but if I use a ‘.jpg’ picture it doesn’t show the full picture.. is there a workaround ?

  7. Nice work Thx !

    How it is possible to close the slideshow ‘self._closeSlideshow();’ just by click outside the ‘.slideshow li’ ?
    Thank u for your return 🙂

  8. This is really great! I have a lone image on the last row ; is there a way to have a fixed number of images per row?

  9. Hi!

    Does anybody know how can you make a filter / sort categories select option for this?

    Thanks!

  10. Love your work! I was trying to combine the ‘Responsive Full Width Tabs’ with the ‘Google Grid Gallery’ but didn’t succeed 🙁

    I have two tabs. I have copied the code (of the Google Grid Gallery index.html file, starting with ” until the ) into the sections tab section: . I have also combined the css files and copied all .js files in the js directory. But unfortunately The Google Grid section doesn’t show.

    It think it has something to do with the ‘display: none’ statement of ‘.content section’ in the ‘component.css’ file or maybe something with the selectors of the javascript, but i’m no hero in js or css.

    Do you have an idea of what could be wrong. If I delete the ‘dispay: none’ statement the grid is shown. But its shown on both tabs.

    Thank you very much for your examples. I hope you can help me.

    Best regards, Willem Thoonen

  11. I loved this gallery! Anyone know how to put an image on the grid li:. Hover {figure instead of a translucent hover? That is, when the cursor on the thumbs of the gallery that this call to a specific image for each thumb is placed. Thank you all.

  12. I have some glitches switching the images on IE10. Any clue on how to make it work nice?

  13. Lovely! The list duplication isn’t ideal though – it makes it hard to scale to large result sets.

  14. Hi, I’m new in all this, I think it’s great! But the slideshow doesn’t work in smart phones. How can I fix it?

  15. Maybe You guys know how to loop the pages in the open galery to avoid exit while we are close to the end or front? I’ll be glad for any help. cheers

  16. Awesome slideshow! I was wondering how I could make bigger images automaticly resize itself / let them show full?
    When I upload a file of 1000x500px for example I can only view a little part of the image because it ‘zooms’ in.
    Could anybody tell me how I can make any image size work please?

    • I have not seen the image is cut to the top of 1000 x 500 px for example. Perfectly resizes in the demo that I have. Now if you want to resize the popup window for the image will look in 1000 px-size, you should go to component.css and modify the line 116 . {Li slideshow
      width: 660px;
      height: 560px;
      position: absolute;
      top: 50%;
      left: 50%;
      margin:-280px 0 0-330px;

      You must modify the margin when supersize window.

  17. Does anyone know how this application can be adapted to the IE8? For me does not work. Does anyone have the debug for that “beautiful” browser?

  18. Hi, thank you for this.
    Please, help, how add a link (<a href>) in li block, and after click in this link not opened slide-window?

  19. Thank you for this great inspiration.
    But how to close the slideshow when clicked outside the “slideshow li” items? Is it possible?

  20. Hi,
    It’s very very nice gallery but I have one may be simple problem but still can’t figured it out. When I test it on localhost I have arrows for next and prev image. But when I upload it to the host I don’t have? There is just one square. What can be the problem?
    Thanks

  21. Very nicely done! Does anyone know how to add swipe capabilities to this? So when you are on your phone, instead of using arrows, you can swipe from left to right? Thank you!

    • hi Ryan

      please help me what me should to do this is not working for me
      plz help

    • Ryan, to get the swipe working I leverage the jquery mobile library (http://jquerymobile.com/download/ – FYI I did a custom build to only grab the touch elements)
      Them added the code below:

      <script src="js/jquery.mobile-1.4.2.min.js"></script> <script> $(document).ready(function() { $("#grid-gallery").swiperight(function() { $( ".nav-prev" ).click(); }); $("#grid-gallery").swipeleft(function() { $( ".nav-next" ).click(); }); }); </script>

    • Ryan and Andrew,

      I tried to follow Andrews but could not get the swipe capability to work.

      I download jquery.mobile-1.4.2.min.js and add the script…but still no luck.

      Can anybody please helo me?

  22. Great slideshow!
    I’ve implemented it on my site but ideally would like the slideshow to loop rather than close when you get to the last image.
    Does anyone know a way of doing this?

  23. I was wondering how do I get the Javascript to work in Dreamweaver? I get all the HTML and CSS in, then I link to the .JS in the head tags, and it still does not work…

  24. Great jumping point! I’m working on implementing a category filter @ https://github.com/Nuwen/GridGallery // http://sandbox.leighjohnson.me/gridgallery/

    Any ideas about how to reload the masonry grid after a .hidden class is applied to groups of figures? I’ve tried calling the masonry(‘reload’) method on the container grid, but that wasn’t successful. I’ve also tried adding a generic click event to the entire document that calls CBPGridGallery.prototype._resizehandler, but that doesn’t work either.

  25. Hi,

    Thanks for this great inspiration.

    I wonder that how can we give transition to all grid and opened slide show ? Do you have any idea?

  26. hi, do you have any ideea on hoe to use two grid-gallery on the same page, one its working but when i put two of the, the second one will not popup, thanks

  27. How do I get to create grids with double size? As shown on page of Google for the Chromebook getting started guide. Thanks you all.

  28. I can get overflow-y to scroll on desktop (for larger overlay sections), but the overlay will not scroll on mobile. Does anyone know how to make scroll happen for smaller screens?

  29. Hi im trying to use this code on a personal project. But i get stuck with a little issue. On the first slideshow i have a lot of content and i am enable the overflow for it. Works fine on standard browsers for PC and MAC but doesn’t work on iPad and iPhone (scrolls the body instead of the slideshow). Anyone knows why? I also used the jquery-mobile1.4.2.js to enable other functions like swipe.

  30. How can I close the slideshow with a click in empty zone (and not by push exit or click X buttons) ?

  31. Hello, I try this plugin in my website but it didn’t work properly.
    I am get images by making ajax call to the database and then I set it in ajax success block.

  33. i have a same problem with them…I am get images by making ajax call to the database and then i use the jquery “append” method to put them in my jsp,it didn’t work…

  34. Has anyone tried using this with something like Isotope? I’m curious about adding filters to the grid for sorting.

  35. This code is working properly
    but i am having problem when i put this grid gallery in a update panel and set trigger on tick event of timer in this case the popup view is not working
