Kookaburra album Masonry/Justify Grid possible?

Hi all,

I know it is not.
But is there a chance that one day will be something similar in Kookaburra album like masonry or justify grid?

Thank you.
Best regards,

I am hoping so, but haven’t done the research yet. The hangup is that the Pangolin layouts are built on jQuery, and Kookaburra punts jQuery to the curb.

So, I’ll need to find pure JS alternatives, which will involve a lot of searching, testing, and then trying to implement to see whether they are actually suitable within Backlight. A lot of libraries I’ve looked at in the past were not suitable, for various reasons.

Or I will need to attempt to role my own, which will involve a lot of research, maybe some code porting from others libraries, and more time than I have on my plate at the moment.

Actually, this might be easier than I thought. It looks like desandro’s Masonry library has been completely rewritten as of v3 to no longer require jQuery. That’s perfect, as that’s the same library Pangolin was using with jQuery.

I took a look at the link you provided above to desandro’s Masonry library.
Is there any easy way for a code challenged person such as myself to get the Kookaburra albums to use the masonry option?
Under the Install list on Desanro’s page, there are a few options. Don’t know what to do.
Thanks. I’m interested in taking advantage of Kookie’s image optimization.
PS, will there be a downloadable template some day?

No, this is something I will need to provide via a future update.

Hi Matt,

when do you think we can expect an update that supports masonry or justify grid?

Best regards,

Not the next Kookaburra update, but probably the one after that, if things go smoothly. December, maybe?

Thanks for letting us know :slightly_smiling_face:

Many thanks Matt, that’s great news!

Hi Matt,

hope you enjoyed Barcelona!
Any plans to implement the Justify Grid to Kookaburra?

Best regards,

Maybe later, if I can find a good way to do it without jQuery. It’s not a high priority at present, though.

Matt, thanks for clearing.
