Skeleton: Beautiful Boilerplate for Responsive, Mobile-Friendly Development What Is It? Skeleton is a small collection of CSS files that can help you rapidly develop sites that look beautiful at any size, be it a 17" laptop screen or an iPhone. Skeleton is built on three core principles: Rundown of Handling Flexible Media When you take the responsive web design route, part of the deal is fluid grids. That is, container elements set in percentage widths. Just one example: an <article> that holds a blog post might be 320px wide on a small screen device and 690px wide on some large screen.

Multi-Device Layout Patterns Through fluid grids and media query adjustments, responsive design enables Web page layouts to adapt to a variety of screen sizes. As more designers embrace this technique, we're not only seeing a lot of innovation but the emergence of clear patterns as well. I cataloged what seem to be the most popular of these patterns for adaptable multi-device layouts. To get a sense of emerging responsive design layout patterns, I combed through all the examples curated on the Media Queries gallery site several times.

Using CSS flexible boxes The CSS3 Flexible Box, or flexbox, is a layout mode providing for the arrangement of elements on a page such that the elements behave predictably when the page layout must accommodate different screen sizes and different display devices. For many applications, the flexible box model provides an improvement over the block model in that it does not use floats, nor do the flex container's margins collapse with the margins of its contents. Many designers will find the flexbox model easier to use. Child elements in a flexbox can be laid out in any direction and can have flexible dimensions to adapt to the display space. Positioning child elements is thus much easier, and complex layouts can be achieved more simply and with cleaner code, as the display order of the elements is independent of their order in the source code. This independence intentionally affects only the visual rendering, leaving speech order and navigation based on the source order.

Media Queries Abstract HTML4 and CSS2 currently support media-dependent style sheets tailored for different media types. For example, a document may use sans-serif fonts when displayed on a screen and serif fonts when printed. How to create animated tooltips with CSS3 How to create some simple, animated tooltips using CSS transitions and the pseudo-classes :before and :after View demo Download source In today’s tip we’ll show you how to create some simple, animated tooltips using CSS transitions and the pseudo-classes :before and :after. The idea is to have a list with links or in our case, social icons, that reveal a little tooltip on hover. The unordered list will look like this: <ul class="tt-wrapper"><li><a class="tt-gplus" href="#"><span>Google Plus</span></a></li><li><a class="tt-twitter" href="#"><span>Twitter</span></a></li><li><a class="tt-dribbble" href="#"><span>Dribbble</span></a></li><li><a class="tt-facebook" href="#"><span>Facebook</span></a></li><li><a class="tt-linkedin" href="#"><span>LinkedIn</span></a></li><li><a class="tt-forrst" href="#"><span>Forrst</span></a></li></ul>

Responsive Layouts, Responsively Wireframed Responsive layouts, responsively wireframed Made with HTML/CSS (no images, no JS*) this is a simple interactive experiment with responsive design techniques. Use the buttons top-right to toggle between desktop and mobile layouts. Using simple layout wireframes, this illustrates how a series of pages could work across these different devices, by simulating how the layout of each page would change responsively, to suit the context. Responsive layouts? Really Responsive Design and the Frameless Grid Many years ago, the web was a simpler place, in terms of design. After all, it’s quite hard to bring anything of visual beauty to your users, when your canvas is monospaced syntax-highlighted text, and nothing else. Thankfully, we’ve come quite a way since then, and now we can do all sorts of incredible things thanks mainly to advances in CSS & javascript. However, whilst we’re now capable of doing far more, our methods of design are often still stuck in ways of thinking that evolved a few years ago. I’ll be deconstructing some of those in this post, and wondering whether it’s not time for a new way of doing things. the controlled grid
