Overview

Options for laying out your Setka project, including wrapping containers, a powerful grid system, and responsive utility classes.

Containers

Containers are the most basic layout element in Setka and are required when using our default grid system. Choose from a responsive, fixed-width container (meaning its max-width changes at each breakpoint) or fluid-width (meaning it’s 100% wide all the time).

While containers can be nested, most layouts do not require a nested container.

Container
<div class="container"> <!-- Content here --> </div>

Use .container-fluid for a full width container, spanning the entire width of the viewport.

Fluid container
<div class="container-fluid"> ... </div>

Responsive breakpoints

Breakpoint xs sm md lg xl
Viewport size all sizes ≥ 576px ≥ 768px ≥ 992px ≥ 1200px
Classname .*-sm-* .*-md-* .*-lg-* .*-xl-*

Since Setka is mobile first, it uses media queries to create sensible breakpoints for our layouts. These breakpoints are mostly based on minimum viewport widths and allow us to scale up elements as the viewport changes.

Setka primarily uses the following media query ranges—or breakpoints—in our source Stylus files for grid system and utilities.

/* Extra small devices (portrait phones, less than 576px) */ /* No media query since this is the default in Setka */ /* Small devices (landscape phones, 576px and up) */ @media (min-width: 576px) { ... } /* Medium devices (tablets, 768px and up) */ @media (min-width: 768px) { ... } /* Large devices (desktops, 992px and up) */ @media (min-width: 992px) { ... } /* Extra large devices (large desktops, 1200px and up) */ @media (min-width: 1200px) { ... }
+media-up('xs') { ... } +media-up('sm') { ... } +media-up('md') { ... } +media-up('lg') { ... } +media-up('xl') { ... } // Example usage: +media-up('sm') .some-class display: block

We occasionally use media queries that go in the other direction (the given screen size or smaller):

/* Extra small devices (portrait phones, less than 576px) */ @media (max-width: 575.98px) { ... } /* Small devices (landscape phones, less than 768px) */ @media (max-width: 767.98px) { ... } /* Medium devices (tablets, less than 992px) */ @media (max-width: 991.98px) { ... } /* Large devices (desktops, less than 1200px) */ @media (max-width: 1199.98px) { ... } /* Extra large devices (large desktops) */ /* No media query since the extra-large breakpoint has no upper bound on its width */
+media-down('xs') { ... } +media-down('sm') { ... } +media-down('md') { ... } +media-down('lg') { ... }

Note that since browsers do not currently support range context queries, we work around the limitations of min- and max- prefixes and viewports with fractional widths (which can occur under certain conditions on high-dpi devices, for instance) by using values with higher precision for these comparisons.

There are also media queries and mixins for targeting a single segment of screen sizes using the minimum and maximum breakpoint widths.

/* Extra small devices (portrait phones, less than 576px) */ @media (max-width: 575.98px) { ... } /* Small devices (landscape phones, 576px and up) */ @media (min-width: 576px) and (max-width: 767.98px) { ... } /* Medium devices (tablets, 768px and up) */ @media (min-width: 768px) and (max-width: 991.98px) { ... } /* Large devices (desktops, 992px and up) */ @media (min-width: 992px) and (max-width: 1199.98px) { ... } /* Extra large devices (large desktops, 1200px and up) */ @media (min-width: 1200px) { ... }
+media-only('xs') { ... } +media-only('sm') { ... } +media-only('md') { ... } +media-only('lg') { ... } +media-only('xl') { ... }

Similarly, media queries may span multiple breakpoint widths:

/* Example */ /* Apply styles starting from medium devices and up to extra large devices */ @media (min-width: 768px) and (max-width: 1199.98px) { ... }
+media-between('md', 'xl') { ... }
