Development of PerlMonks "Mobile" is now open for business

One of the things that people have said we ought to have is a mobile version of the site. I agree. :-) So to get development started, I have set up a small framework for the developers to work on. There are three infrastructure nodes which any pmdev members can submit patches to:

As I post this, all three are empty except for some comments to show what kind of code they could contain.

To access the "mobile" version of the site, insert the /mobile/ path component in the URL, for example:

[href://mobile/?node=SOPW] => mobile/?node=SOPW
Hopefully someday we can make the necessary DNS changes to allow the mobile site to be accessed at m.perlmonks.org.

We need people who are good with CSS and Javascript. :-)

If you'd like to help, and are not yet a member of pmdev, you may message the gods to ask to be added.

Update:

In order to support expedited development of the CSS and JS bits, I have set up a wonki, mobile css and javascript, which contains the CSS and JS used by the mobile site. This is temporary; when the CSS and JS have stabilized, I'll move their respective code into the fullpages linked above. If you would like to try hacking on the CSS and/or JS, let me know and I'll add you to the wonki. But I want to keep the number of writers small, to minimize collisions. Wonkis work like wikis. :-)

I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.

    Sorry, mobile only pages are already out.

    State of the art is to have an adaptive design for all clients.

    These are based on JS/CSS frameworks like bootstrap.

    Tobyink already did a nodelet hack to demo PM on bootstrap ( PerlMonks meets Twitter Bootstrap) and I know at least 2 regulars (Your Mother,choroba) using it on a daily basis.

    IMHO should something like this be our approach - not necessarily bootstrap & jQuery, but similar.

    I would have preferred to have this discussion in a less public board, alas there is no alternative.

      I don't disagree. But I have nowhere near the chops to implement it myself. Other expertise will have to step up and help. :-)

      You can start a thread on the pmdev page. That has all the confidentiality we need, I think.

        Unfortunately we are turning in circles...

        ... pmdev threads quickly become unreadable.

        I.E. without RAT support and/or messages.

        I'll create a showcase.

    I'd suggest to restrict reading of the inner scriptorium to cabals or pmdev only.

    Like this we can better discuss bigger changes and organisational and security stuff.

      I think, if it's going to be that sensitive, maybe just start a thread under pmdev.

        I already started sensible threads in pmdev and people - including the gods - lost track when they got longer.

    First screen full is all boiler plate. At the moment /bare/ and desktop are both looking better in chrome on a horizontal phone.

      That's because virtually no work has been done on it. Are you volunteering? Or just complaining?
