Response JS: mobile-first responsive design in HTML5.

Response JS: mobile-first responsive design in HTML5.
Response's most powerful feature is breakpoint sets. Using the sets, content for more-capable devices and/or larger viewports can be stored in HTML5 data attributes. Designers can create custom sets to make exactly the functionality that they want. (None are setup by default.) Breakpoints can be based on width | device-width | height | device-height | device-pixel-ratio or on custom props. Designers can use the default breakpoints (ideal for 960 grids) or specify custom breakpoints.

Overthrow: An overflow polyfill for responsive design Posted by Scott on 02/22/2012 Topics: accessibility css javascript The Heads-Up Grid Responsive web design, as described/defined by Ethan Marcotte anyway, is the act of creating various forms of the same basic site design that are optimized for different ranges of browser window widths. Luckily, the way that I originally constructed the Heads-Up Grid made it relatively easy to adapt to the needs of responsive web design. You can quickly and easily define as many different grids as you need by way of basic JavaScript conditional statements. Even if you are not extremely comfortable with JavaScript, if you are ambitious enough to tackle responsive web design you will most likely have no problem figuring this out. To create a responsive grid use the following code as a template. This template is fairly self-explanatory if you are familiar with CSS Media Queries.

Media Query & Asset Downloading Results A little while back, I mentioned I was doing some research for the book about how images are downloaded when media queries are involved. To help with that, I wrote up some automated tests where Javascript could determine whether or not the image was requested and the results could be collected by Browserscope for review. I posted some initial findings, but I think I’ve got enough data now to be able to go into a bit more detail. First, any credit has to go to the awesome team at Cloud Four. Most of the tests were created by them for some testing they were doing. I just added some Javascript to automate them. Less Framework 4 I called Less Framework "a CSS grid system for designing adaptive websites". It was basically a fixed-width grid that adapted to a couple of then popular screen widths by shedding some of its columns. It also had matching typographic presets to go with it, built with a modular scale based on the golden ratio. The resources it was originally published with are still available on GitHub.
