I see the biggest challenge to using PerlMonks on a small device (aside from the difficulty of typing markup and code on an alpha-centric keyboard) is the fact that the nodelets at the side take too much width away from the main section.

Rather than a dedicated app for each platform I see more value in (and have thought about this before too) allowing a URL to have a rendertype=tiny, or something along those lines.

As for what that would do: All active nodelets would render at the bottom (below the main section). That way I get more width for what counts. Hand in hand with that, the Nodelet Settings page could have a column dedicated to minimal displays to allow me to pick and choose which nodelets I want to see on my screen-size-challenged device, independently of the standard settings used everywhere else.

Of course what this requires is a lot of work, and it's hard to find a volunteer who knows the site's internals well enough, and is motivated enough to see a project like that through to the end, and has the time.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
