Making Bloginity A Part of the Responsive Web. A 2013 Project.
by Daniel Haim
As Pete Cashmore said last December: 2013 will be the year of responsive web. Today I am proud to announce that Bloginity is following the trend.
“Every day that we spent not improving our products was a wasted day.” – Joel Sposky, Co-Founder, Stack Exchange
This last year I’ve been working extremely hard to turn Bloginity into the incredible platform that it is. Millions are enjoying our content each month through various ways and in these last few days I’ve been working on finishing up a long-time project of mine. Making Bloginity responsive to any mobile phone, and any tablet has been the ultimate goal, and I am delighted to be able to provide you with a fully immersive web design that allows you to view our content from any device.
Instead of making different websites for mobile and web, creating Apps for for iOS or Android using exact pixels we are using percentage widths combined with conditional tags making the site completely responsive for any layout.
Adding conditional tags have allowed us to eliminate elements whether the screen is smaller, or bigger, or even bigger than bigger. I’ve taken the time to screen capture what happens when you minimize the screen on Bloginity’s new site (which launched last night.)
Try it out yourself:
Here is a video in case you’re still confused about the new responsive site, also, check it out from your iPad, iPhone or Android phone/tablet. If you find any bugs feel more than welcome to tweet them at me, @danielhaim.
I hope that this inspires other web designers, and big brands to follow the trend and realize what an impact it will have for their users.
A special thanks to my good friend @jsngr for helping me with this very special project. To read more about the responsive web, visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Responsive_web_design.
