Create a Multi Column Display Template for SharePoint

Brian Feldmann

SharePoint Display Templates make it fairly easy as a developer to set how search results are rendered for the end user. Just download a copy of an out-of-box display template, modify the markup, add some JavaScript, upload it to SharePoint and you’ve got yourself a new “template” for rendering search results. If you’re new to display templates take a look at SharePoint 2013 Design Manager display templates on MSDN.
As a developer, you have complete control over the way end users see and interact with search results. This post focuses on how you can create a column based display template. The end result will render items in a two column view where items flow top to bottom, left to right.
