How to dynamically sort cards with hyperlink?

Hi all,

I’m looking for a ‘grid builder’ but then linked to a PDF instead of a post or page. I want to create something like a card with just an icon, title, and download button on it. As soon as you hit the button the PDF open in a new browser window and you can download it.

I’ve got ± 50 PDF’s, that all fall into 1 of 5 categories. I want to be able to filter those 5 categories and have the cards show or hide. This will all happen on the same page.

It should work like the ‘Advanced Post’ feature from the add-ons, without linking it to a post or page.

Does anyone know how I can do this or have a plugin to help me?
