Why jQuery Mobile?
What is jQuery Mobile?
Good question to start with!
The jQuery mobile framework allows you to design a single highly-branded web site or application that will work on all popular smartphone, tablet, and desktop platforms
Mobile is a mobile-first framework and no a mobile only framework which means that you can develop responsive web designs on top of the plugins, below are 2 of my favourite features in the new Mobile versions.
We all know that side sliding Facebook menu, and now we have access to our very own thanks to jQuery Mobiles new panel widget. You can see how these work exactly in the documentation here.
One of my biggest problems when creating Responsive Web Sites is how to deal with tables, but thanks to tables can be switched to be stacked rather than inline on small screens, something which jQuery Mobile calls table reflow. You can see this in action below:
How Do I Include?
jQuery Mobile is really starting to take off in Web Development Circles and it’s current Latest Stable Version as we speak is 1.3.1 which you can insert directly into your websites using the following:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.3.1/jquery.mobile-1.3.1.min.css" />
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.3.1/jquery.mobile-1.3.1.min.js"> </script>
