Home Forums CSS Best way to build a responsive website Re: Best way to build a responsive website


It really depends on the project. If your app is image heavy you might need to do some agent sniffing with JavaScript or whatever server side language you’re working with. If you are building relatively large app think about modularity, if you see yourself writing same piece of code over and over, refactor.

If you are just starting out with Responsive Design consider keeping it simple. Start with developing with just HTML/CSS/MediaQuery once you get comfortable or if you find your CSS/MQ limiting, then add another layer like JavaScript.

Hope that helps,
