Developing for mobile devices


App Suite is designed to work on all device types and sizes. The UI uses responsive design principles to scale nicely on each device size. We do define three display sizes to macht the majority of devices. These are simply named "small", "medium" and "large". Theses classes are used to match smartphones, tablets and desktop PCs. If you are developing a app for App Suite make sure it runs nicely and looks great on all of these three device categories. (If you are not familiar with latest CSS techniques and the principles of responsive design you should have a look at this article).

Often the simple use of media queries is not enough to customize your app for small and medium screens, you may need to customize your application code as well. We have integrated a function to detect everything you might want to know during runtime in your javascript code.

The _.device function

We extended underscore with a new function called _.device
