This version is in early development and is subject to change and therefore not ready for wide use. There may be other stable versions available.

Card Container container

A multi-column container for vf-card.

github location npm version

Usage

Columns

The containier defaults to three columns (the recommended number of image-based cards per row). However if text-only cards are being used, a 4-column variant is supported cards_per_row: 4 which appends CSS class vf-card-container__col-4.

CSS Custom Properties

The vf-card component allows for a CSS custom property to be set to define the aspect-ratio of the card image. This can be set per card, but with the vf-card-container you should aim for consistency across the vf-cards it is displaying. Therefore we can pass the aspect-ratio value from this component and it will cascade through the CSS onto the cards. This is encapsulated to this container, which allows you to set different aspect-ratio values for different containers as needed.

To set the aspect-ratio you will need to set the card_custom_aspect_ratio key/value pair in the .yml or the {%  render  %} api of the `vf-card-container as needed.

Variants

To create a centre of excellence for Europe's leading young molecular biologists

One card

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit. Sapiente harum, omnis provident saepe aut eius aliquam sequi fugit incidunt reiciendis, mollitia quos? Sapiente harum, omnis provident saepe aut eius aliquam sequi fugit incidunt reiciendis, mollitia quos?

A card here

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit.

Another card

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit. Sapiente harum, omnis provident saepe aut eius aliquam sequi fugit incidunt reiciendis, mollitia quos?

Nunjucks syntax

Depending on your environment you'll want to use render or include. As a rule of thumb: server-side use include, precompiled browser use render. If you're using vf-eleventy you should use include.

Using include

You'll need to pass a context object from your code or Yaml file (example), as well as the path to the Nunjucks template. Nunjucks' include is an abstraction of render and provides some additional portability.


{% set context fromYourYamlFile %}
- or -
{% set context = {
  "component-type": "container",
  "modifier": "vf-u-background-color--grey--lightest vf-u-fullbleed",

Using render

This approach is best for bare-bones Nunjucks environments, such as precompiled templates with the Nunjucks slim runtime where include is not be available.
