CSS Question

How can I make Bootstrap 4 cards all the same height?

I am using Bootstrap 4 alpha 2 and taking advantage on cards.
Specifically, I am working with this example taken from the official docs. As title says, how can I make all cards the same height?

EDIT: All I can think by now is setting the following CSS rule:

.card {
min-height: 200px;
}


But that is just an hard coded solution that won't work in general case.
The code in my view is the same as the one in the docs i.e:

<div class="card-columns">
<div class="card">
<img class="card-img-top" data-src="..." alt="Card image cap">
<div class="card-block">
<h4 class="card-title">Card title that wraps to a new line</h4>
<p class="card-text">This is a longer card with supporting text below as a natural lead-in to additional content. This content is a little bit longer.</p>
</div>
</div>
<div class="card card-block">
<blockquote class="card-blockquote">
<p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Integer posuere erat a ante.</p>
<footer>
<small class="text-muted">
Someone famous in <cite title="Source Title">Source Title</cite>
</small>
</footer>
</blockquote>
</div>
<div class="card">
<img class="card-img-top" data-src="..." alt="Card image cap">
<div class="card-block">
<h4 class="card-title">Card title</h4>
<p class="card-text">This card has supporting text below as a natural lead-in to additional content.</p>
<p class="card-text"><small class="text-muted">Last updated 3 mins ago</small></p>
</div>
</div>
<div class="card card-block card-inverse card-primary text-xs-center">
<blockquote class="card-blockquote">
<p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Integer posuere erat.</p>
<footer>
<small>
Someone famous in <cite title="Source Title">Source Title</cite>
</small>
</footer>
</blockquote>
</div>
<div class="card card-block text-xs-center">
<h4 class="card-title">Card title</h4>
<p class="card-text">This card has supporting text below as a natural lead-in to additional content.</p>
<p class="card-text"><small class="text-muted">Last updated 3 mins ago</small></p>
</div>
<div class="card">
<img class="card-img" data-src="..." alt="Card image">
</div>
<div class="card card-block text-xs-right">
<blockquote class="card-blockquote">
<p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Integer posuere erat a ante.</p>
<footer>
<small class="text-muted">
Someone famous in <cite title="Source Title">Source Title</cite>
</small>
</footer>
</blockquote>
</div>
<div class="card card-block">
<h4 class="card-title">Card title</h4>
<p class="card-text">This is a wider card with supporting text below as a natural lead-in to additional content. This card has even longer content than the first to show that equal height action.</p>
<p class="card-text"><small class="text-muted">Last updated 3 mins ago</small></p>
</div>
</div>

Answer

Finally, since I had just the first card with different height I left the card-columns approach and use Bootstrap grid system. To make the first card the same height of the sibling I just write some basic javascript

// Make fist card height equal to its nearest card sibling
$('.card-first').each(function () {
    var h = $(this).parent().next().children().height();
    if (h > minHeight) {
        $(this).height(h)
    }
});
