Responsive design and why I want to make love to it

  • # March 14, 2012 at 12:24 pm

    I had a request to make a full mobile version of our phone directory which is 20 pages. Mistakenly, I decided to use jQuery Mobile which added more pages and duplicate .net code for me to maintain. I have never been a fan of this framework but held my nose while using it. I published the site feeling like a cheap date that never got a call back the following morning.

    A few cold showers later an opportunity arose for me to redo the look of our internal sites. Again, I revisited these frameworks but most came with a lot of extra baggage (size). I ran across Initialr and opted writing a responsive design that sort of resembled a mobile look.

    An hour into writing both a fluid and fixed grid system, type, and responsive design, this is what I have…

    (it’s NOT pretty yet: be warned – just a demo to see if I can do this)

    So if the showcased mobile sites on ExtJS, jQuery Mobile, and others aren’t using phonegap – and are treated more like mobile sites – why use it? What are you planning on doing and what is your taken on this?
