Responsive Data Table Roundup. By Chris Coyier On responsive tables There has been a bunch of takes on responsive data tables since I first published about it.

Responsive Data Table Roundup

The idea of the original was to abandon the grid layout of the table and make each cell its own line. Each of those lines is labeled with a pseudo element. This creates a much taller table, requiring more vertical scrolling, but does not require horizontal scrolling. It's easier to browse the data without losing context of what's what. Mobifreaks published a very similar idea, which uses the same layout change and pseudo element labeling. Derek Pennycuff took the original and applied the "mobile first" concept. Drew Dyksterhouse made a demo that calculates where the table should break by measuring if the table has become wider than the screen, then saving that breakpoint for efficiency. Scott Jehl cooked up two clever ideas.

Pretty cool, but clearly all tables can't be converted into charts. View Demo I think Stewart was on to something though. Responsive Images Done Right: A Guide To And srcset. Advertisement Today, too many websites are still inaccessible.

Responsive Web Design · An A List Apart Article.

Each phase of the architectural process is more immutable, more unchanging than the last.

OOCSS/Atomic CSS are Responsive Web Design ‘anti-patterns’ – Ben Frain

Specific details are likely out of date. For many months now, in response to many failed attempts to find a suitable approach to scaling the CSS on the projects I work on, I have been using ‘ECSS’, my own Frankenstein approach to large-scale CSS architecture. It’s detailed more fully in the post, Enduring CSS: writing style sheets for rapidly changing, long-lived projects. Subsequently, in this post, I’m about to argue that an OOCSS architectural approach to a large scale, rapidly changing responsive web site or application is an ‘anti-pattern’. This isn’t an attack on OOCSS, Atomic CSS or any related single responsibility principle (SRP) approaches. Writing CSS is easy. It’s therefore important to consider the problems that you have.

Pour les développeurs web, il est maintenant assez commun d'être appelé pour créer un site web ou une application qui change son interface utilisateur en fonction du navigateur ou du dispositif accédant au site, pour fournir une expérience optimisée. Une première approche pour cela consiste à créer différentes versions de votre site/application pour différentes plates-formes ou navigateurs et les générer de façon appropriée après la détection de la plate-forme ou du navigateur qui se connecte à votre site. Cependant cette méthode est de plus en plus inefficace : la détection de navigateur amène facilement à des erreurs, et la maintenance de plusieurs versions de votre code peut s'avérer un cauchemar. C'est un moyen plus sûr, plus facilement maintenable, et plus stable sur le long terme. Responsive Design Knowledge Hub. Top 10 Responsive Web Design Tutorials.

CSS3 Multiple Columns and Responsive Design.

Yesterday I came across a question on StackOverflow regarding CSS Multiple Columns and Responsive Design. I'm working on a site that uses a responsive layout and I've run into a problem getting around the shortcomings of the newer CSS multi-column properties ( the browser window is wide enough, I split the text into two columns with an sidebar for smaller images. The multi-column css properties work great, but they're not too smart.The first section is split evenly into two equal-height columns, but they're way too tall.

For someone to read this section they'd have to scroll down along the first column, then back up to the start of the next to read the rest.The second section is split into two equal-height columns too, but there's only two sentences, so it looks awkward; there's not really enough content to justify a second column the user has to read across. In my answer I decided to add a code pen to show the exact process, and then went on to explain how I came about to the solution. Advanced Responsive Design Techniques.
