How can I create a gallery that sorts like on www.squarespace.com/templates ?

It looks like there's a script on that page that grabs all of the template information into an array when the page is loaded (possibly via an Ajax call, because the project info is not a part of the initial payload). At this point the default Featured view is randomised. Refreshing the page will randomise again.

Clicking the categories fires off a script that applies that particular filter - hiding templates that are not applicable - and uses css transitions/animations to give the nice dynamic redraw effect.

Clicking a category does not randomise - only refreshing the page does that.

It's something that you can only do with developer mode and some nice client side scripting.
