Really easy responsive design.


\"Thumbnail\"It’s no secret that many believe responsive web is the future. Creating a responsive site means that it’s able to adapt to the many different browsers and sizes that are available. If I want to make sure my website I’ve created on my desktop can be seen on a tablet with minium scrolling and zooming, I’m going to be interested in creating a responsive site.<\/p>\r\n

One reason responsive sites have become popular is because it just makes sense. It’s cheaper than creating one or more extra sites for mobile phones and tablets. It also makes sure there’s a consistent viewing experience amongst devices and desktop screens. It’s not fun having to increase the size of your window or scroll horizontally to see an entire website.<\/p>\r\n

While creating responsive web designs is becoming easier, there are some ways to get it going even quicker. Thanks to some CSS and HTML, we can code it right into our sites. Other elements require a bit more work. Either way, we’ve come up with a list to help you put your responsive site together with minimum fuss and maximum results.<\/p>\r\n

jQuery plugins<\/h1>\r\n


Isotope is a jQuery plugin that claims to create magical layouts that cannot otherwise be created by CSS and HTML. It has the ability to rearrange elements inside of a container so they fit within it as it resizes. You can also use Isotope to filter and sort items by categories and such.<\/p>\r\n




Breakpoint was made with developers and designers in mind. It’s a plugin that allows you to create breakpoints for different browser sizes. When your browser is resized to one of those sizes, the elements are able to fit into the screen.\u00a0<\/p>\r\n
