Improve group tiling on make.wordpress.org homepage

Description

Right now, the make.wordpress.org groups are listed in rows, the height of which is determined by the taller tile in the row. This gets really awkward towards the bottom of the page: https://cloudup.com/cTXWdC2keoD

Suggestions:

  • Switch community and meta tiles so the height differences are less obvious
  • Or, define a min-height so all tiles are the same size
  • Best, use masonry.js (http://masonry.desandro.com) so tiles flow together regardless of height

201.diff makes some small style tweaks to the Make homepage:

  • Increases top and bottom padding to the "get involved" section, giving the elements in some breathing room
  • Switches pts to ems
  • Increases line-height for better readability
  • Applies a min-height to each "get involved" group (not ideal — we should try masonry.js instead for seamless tiling)

PS — I made the diff from within the wporg-makehome directory.

Masonry is available to us as we're running WordPress trunk. So just wp_enqueue_script( 'jquery-masonry' ); and you will have the ability to use it in the theme.

I'll commit these changes in the meantime.

Kill the min-height, use masonry instead. See #201

Was looking into the Masonry 3 code in 3.9 and remembered this one. So, switched it to use masonry.

Still not perfect at some smaller widths though. Not bad, admittedly. Maybe we should allow that container to be wider for widescreens as well, and expand the number of possible columns?
