Layout utilities for Sass projects

Accoutrement-Layout provides essential layout utilities – including media-query helpers, a clearfix for floated elements, global box-sizing, positioning shortcuts, and fluid aspect ratios.

‘npm package’ ‘build status’

Organize named media-query breakpoints in a single map, or integrate with existing accoutrement-scale sizes. Position elements using a shorthand mixin, set box-sizing for any nested context, establish intrinsic ratios, use our micro-clearfix, and organize named z-index values with nesting for extra contextual control.

npm install accoutrement-layout
