AGS Whitepaper, is a series of whitepapers that I’ve written for Adobe Global Services (AGS). The whitepapers were all based on the experience and knowledge I’ve had throughout the various projects/clients I’ve worked with.
The first one that I’m releasing today talks about the Grid System, originally released on 2011 for ADEP 10 (pre-cursor to AEM).
Note that the document originally refers to the 960 grid system (http://960.gs), since that’s what I used for one of my implementation. However, similar CSS grid system frameworks such as the one included in Bootstrap (http://getbootstrap.com/) can be used as well.
Enjoy! More to come!
The Grid System solution can be divided in two parts: First,we define a layout foundation by dividing a CQ page into a series of section/area and columns. Second, using the open-source 960 Grid System (http://960.gs/) it allows us to create a flexible template layout for the pages of the site.
