RAM stands for Repeat, Auto-fit, Minmax, the powerful specific pattern used fo templating these classes.

RAM classes are the way to go when you want to achieve simple, easy and auto-responsive grid designs.

NB: In this documentation, when you see this notation : --o-property-{1-5}, this means that all values from 1 to 5 exist. So when you see --o-property-{1-5}, you can use :

  • --o-property-1
  • --o-property-2
  • --o-property-3
  • --o-property-4
  • --o-property-5

RAM grids are the most easy to use grids in the series, but also the most complex under the hood.

When you assign a RAM class to a container, for example the class o-ram-5, oxyprops will automatically:

  • Grab your site page width from the builder settings.
  • Grap your gap value from the o-gap-{x} class if you did set one.
  • Calculate the grid column width based on these values and the number of columns you chose. This will set the minimum width for you elements.

You then get a grid where each element in the grid has a width of page-width minus gaps divided by number of columns.

When the screen size reduces, the grid elements will automatically wrap on multiple lines to keep this minimum width.

OxyProps RAM grid utility classes set the following properties :

display: grid;
align-items: stretch;
grid-template-columns: var(--o-ram-{2-12});
width: 100%;

Both in Oxygen and Bricks, the classes need to “fight” with the builder defaults that sets display: flex on sections (Oxy & Brx), containers (Brx) and div (Oxy). In these situations, the framework has higher selector specificity to achieve the expected result.
