Installable with the Extension Manager


The Masonry macro integrates the JavaScript Masonry library into XWiki for easing the creationg of responsive images walls. It also uses the jQuery plugin waitForImages. The code used is inspired from a codepen by Christopher Crostello


The macro can be used either without content - in that case the images attached to the current page are used - or with content, and with or without links. The image titles can be set using instances of ResourceMetadataClass attached to each target page.

  1. Log in the wiki with a user having Administration rights
  2. Go to the Administration page and select the Import category
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to upload the downloaded XAR
  4. Click on the uploaded XAR and follow the instructions
