Vendor Prefixing

Add External Stylesheets/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <link>s in order, and before the CSS in the editor. If you link to another Pen, it will include the CSS from that Pen. If the preprocessor matches, it will attempt to combine them before processing.

+ add another resource

You're using npm packages, so we've auto-selected Babel for you here, which we require to process imports and make it all work. If you need to use a different JavaScript preprocessor, remove the packages in the npm tab.

Add External Scripts/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <script>s in order, and run before the JavaScript in the editor. You can use the URL of any other Pen and it will include the JavaScript from that Pen.

Use npm Packages

We can make npm packages available for you to use in your JavaScript. We use webpack to prepare them and make them available to import. We'll also process your JavaScript with Babel.

⚠️ This feature can only be used by logged in users.

			<h1 style="font-size: 2.5em;">Responsive Equal Height Rows</h1>
      <p>This pattern is a fork of a <a target="_blank" href="https://css-tricks.com/equal-height-blocks-in-rows/">CSS Tricks Post</a></p>
      <p>To adapt this pattern for responsive use I placed it into a function and called it each time the window was resized. One note is that you must reset the div heights before you take a new measurement.</p>
			<h3>Pros</h3>
			<ul>
			<li><strong>The Equal Height Rows Designers Crave</strong> - If a desiger uses a box, those boxes better line up or they lose their Adobe license. Really!</li>
			<li><strong>Seperate heights for each row</strong> - Each row's height is calculated seperately, which works better for multi row layouts.</li>
			<li><strong>Light</strong> - This is a pretty short script and could be omitted from your mobile, one column layout.</li>
			</ul>
			<h3>Cons</h3>
      <ul>
      <li><strong>Not a pure CSS solution</strong> - There are some pure CSS solutions out there, but they rely on background gradients or table displays, all which hack around the problem, rather than really solving it. Until we get flexbox, this will have to do.</li>
        <li><strong>Not 100% finished</strong> - Would like better support for subdivisions, where a div could take up space on multiple/partial rows (think <a href="https://masonry.desandro.com/" target="_blank">Masonry</a>)</li>
			</ul>
      <p>I hope to put this design into production on a future project, so any feedback is appreciated.
