Shapeshift

Plugin which will dynamically arrange a collection of elements into a column grid system similar to Pinterest. What sets it apart is the ability to drag and drop items within the grid while still maintaining a logical index position for each item. This allows for the grid to be rendered exactly the same every time Shapeshift is used, as long as the child elements are in the correct order.

HTML5 Sortable

Lightweight jQuery plugin to create sortable lists and grids using native HTML5 drag and drop API.

Packery

Packery is a JavaScript layout library that uses a bin-packing algorithm. This is a fancy way of saying “it fills empty gaps.” Packery layouts can be intelligently ordered or organically wild. Elements can be stamped in place, fit in an ideal spot, or dragged around.

jQuery Sortable Photos is a jQuery UI plugin that can display photos in a responsive, sortable grid.

The grid can optionally be configured to allow drag-and-drop sorting.
