Masonry is a layout plugin for jQuery. Think of it as the flip side of CSS floats. Whereas floating arranges elements horizontally then vertically, Masonry arranges elements vertically then horizontally according to a grid. The result minimizes vertical gaps between elements of varying height, just like a mason fitting stones in a wall.
This project lives on GitHub at github.com/desandro/masonry, where you can follow progress and download all these demos and documentation, and grab the latest version of the script.
