In Detail

Responsive Web Design (RWD) is a web design approach aimed at arranging things in a way to get optimal viewing experience and easy reading and navigation on different screen sizes. It bonds together designers and developers as they publish and test new solutions to build websites for all screen sizes. The simplicity of this technology stems from the fact that learning about the most tested RWD solutions along with basic HTML, CSS, and a bit of JavaScript, can soon help you start using these solutions for yourself. The foundations of RWD, once mastered, will help you gain the skills you need to create your own responsive website.

Keep track of Responsive Web Designs (RWD) patterns by building your own pattern library and creating RWD's most popular patterns, seen on hundreds of websites today. For beginners and pros, this book provides a toolset to help plan the design and functionality of a responsive website.

The book begins with creating a home for all your patterns by setting up your own pattern library. Each chapter is broken down into different sections of a website; presenting patterns for each section. We move on to building responsive layouts of varying degrees of complexity to house the type of content you need. Develop menu systems and see which responsive navigation fits the size of your website. Next, you'll learn tactics to present media and data elegantly on different screen sizes. And finally, you'll tie up all those loose ends on your responsive website and pattern library to get it ready for launch.

Style and approach

This book is a collection of favored responsive patterns broken down to be easily understood and recreated. Each chapter focuses on a specific part of a website, from large to small, and shows you the markup and styles behind it. A responsive pattern library accompanies this book that you can download and see the patterns and your code beforehand.

Comments about oreilly Responsive Web Design Patterns:

The only remark I have: If you are using the book in a different country (like I did in Spain) you get automatically the sample of Disney.com in the spanish language, which are different from the examples in the book. So you can't use these, unless you are at home.
Further a very informative book!!
