CSS Frameworks for Rapid Site Designs

  1. 1. CSS Frameworks forRapid Site Designs• Ben MacNeillben.macneill@extension.org• Presentation at:slideshare.net/chillnc/
  2. 2. What is a CSS framework?• Two CSS files (core + responsive)• A single Javascript file (dependent on jQuery)• Two image files

  8. 8. Why Responsive Design?• Designing for specific devices — too many• Siloed pages: /mobile/page.html — trapped
  9. 9. Three Components• A flexible grid-based layout• Flexible images and media• Media queries (CSS3)
  10. 10. Make it Responsive• Set viewport• Include bootstrap-responsive.css
  11. 11. Short Detour:Reseting theViewport• Modern mobile browsers pretend that webpages are desktop-browser size (~900px)• They render them at that size• Then shrink the resulting page to fit in thedevice window
  12. 12. Override the Default<meta name="viewport" content="initial-scale=1.0, width=device-width" />• Makes width of the browser’s viewportequal to the width of the device’s screen

  19. 19. Data Attributes• Trigger Bootstrap plugins without writing any JS• Use data-toggle to call the plugin• Use data-target or href to set your target<a href="#myModal" data-toggle="modal">Click me</a>
  20. 20. Bootstrap offers customization(But I prefer an override.css)
