A quick introduction to using the Columns stack in Foundry
Columns are important to us when building pages. They help us to structure our content as well as to plan our layouts in a nice, responsive manner. Responsive column grids though can be a lot of work to code and maintain properly. The Columns stack for Foundry allows us to quickly and easily build these sorts of layouts without a stitch of code.
The Columns stack allows us to create simple, basic columnized layouts with very little effort. If we delve deeper into the Columns stack we also find that it provides us the ability to create rather complex layouts as well, using source ordering, offsets and more. These more complex layouts aren’t all that much more complex to achieve though using this stack.
In this video we take a look at the basics of the Columns stack for Foundry as well as some of its more advanced features.
The Columns stack documentation page offers you a look at all of the stack’s features. It is also a great resource to refer back to when you’re building your pages in the event you forget what a feature does.
