What is "Mobile-Friendly"?
More and more people are using their Phone or tablet to access the INTERNET and INTRANET sites. It is therefore necessary to think the sites so that they are "Mobile-friendly, that is to say that they can adapt to a use on mobile (Phone or tablet).
In a "Mobile-friendly" site, the user will access from his mobile or tablet all the main information of the site, without having to zoom or reduce the pages to access the desired information.

Concepts in WEBDEV

To make a "Mobile-friendly" site, WEBDEV proposes several concepts:
  • Le Dynamic Serving: "Dynamic serving" is a technique where the same address (URL) leads to 2 different pages: a page for PC and a page for mobile. The page will be displayed based on the device (PC or mobile) that opens it.
    With "Dynamic serving", you no longer need to modify the existing pages: simply add mobile-specific pages.
    However, this method requires the use of two sets of pages, and therefore a doubling of the codes to be executed.
  • The historical Responsive Web Design: This concept allows the pages to be sliced to fit on the mobile. This solution makes it possible to keep a unique code whatever the support of use of the site. However, this mode of implementation Page requires a great rigor.
  • Fixtures. We have already mentioned and discussed this concept in different chapters of this course. The layouts allow to quickly set up a specific interface for mobile use. The code remains common. Just move, make Invisible or configure the different fields in the mobile layout. These manipulations are entirely WYSIWYG under the page editor.
In the rest of this part, we will handle the layouts and use different techniques to optimize the implementation of layouts in the different pages of your sites.
