Responsive Web Design is a great way of building websites, but what about mobile web applications? We love jQuery Mobile and wanted to make it even easier to build responsive applications with it. AppView is an all-in-one widget for mobile applications. It has built-in navigation, ajax-loaded content and a responsive layout system. AppView is ideal for building a single application that works on both phones and tablets while optimizing screen real estate. Let's look at an example of how AppView works. Using really simple markup, we can create this application with navigation and layout. The markup requires a header, content, and menu like so.
<div data-role="page" data-theme="b"> <div data-role="wijappview"> <div data-role="appviewpage"> <div data-role="header" data-position="fixed"> <h2>Appview</h2> </div> <div data-role="content"> Default content, not displayed on a small screen. </div> </div> <div data-role="menu" class="ui-body-a"> <ul data-role="wijlistview" data-theme="a"> <li><a href="nuncTincidunt.html">Nunc tincidunt</a></li> <li><a href="proinDolor.html">Proin dolor</a></li> <li><a href="aeneanLacinia.html">Aenean lacinia</a></li> </ul> </div> </div> </div>
On an tablet the AppView will result in a multi-column layout with an always visible menu. Meanwhile, on a phone, the AppView will have a single-column layout and automatically add the back button for navigating back to the main menu. AppView is a powerful tool for creating responsive mobile applications. It makes responsive layout in jQuery Mobile easy. Take a look at a live demo of AppView, or read more about it in our docs.
Our philosophy is to embrace community standards instead of replace them. So we chose to extend jQuery Mobile instead of writing our own mobile framework. We literally extended jQuery Mobile ListView. In this release you will find it identical to the jQuery Mobile API, but we will be adding features soon. We chose to extend it and use it internally (our AppView widget uses it heavily) so that when we add these features we will not cause breaking changes moving forward. If you haven't used it yet, jQuery Mobile's ListView is an outstanding widget for mobile development. Here is what it looks like in action.
We have updated to officially support jQuery 1.9 and jQuery UI 1.10 in Wijmo 2013v1. Now you can use the latest versions of jQuery and jQuery UI with Wijmo. Note, however, that our jQuery Mobile support is at 1.2 and it required jQuery 1.8.2.
