Opting for Responsive Web Design (RWD) is the âINâ thing today. RWD is a set of techniques used for creation of websites / web applications which can adapt to the clientâs screen interface. The main motto is to ensure that the content be accessible in a secure and restful manner in any type of device with varying capabilities. Though it sounds so simple, there are hidden challenges which come across while achieving this aim. Making use of a sound architecture and framework can help in overcoming those challenges and can produce a reliable and efficient web application.
RWD techniques are built in such a ways that reciprocate seamlessly to various kinds of browsers (HTML5, CSS3, plugins), devices (tablets, laptops, mobile devices), user capacities (visual, audio) and view port (media type, orientation).
Most observed benefits of RWD are Consistency, Quality rich, User satisfaction, Multi Device support and Extensive reach.
Key Challenges while building a responsive design
- Varying screen sizes of mobile devices
- Multiple input methods
- Different Mobile browsers and their standards
- Diverse Cellular data bandwidth
In order to overcome these challenges and come up with a modern browser based web app, that suffices user requirements to the maximum, building it with the latest ASP .NET MVC stack is the ideal solution, which would be a amalgamation of responsive web design resources being utilized for Microsoft ASP .NET MVC development.
The heart of RWD lies in the following three features:
RWD with ASP .NET MVC
ASP .NET possesses the capabilities of implementing mobile applications with responsive design frameworks like Twitter Bootstrap, one of the most popular front end frameworks for responsive web design and development. Any MVC 5 web project which is in VS 2013 is already having Bootstrap 3 as the default method for building responsive web applications.
Yet another well known framework is Foundation. It also provides a flexible grid system, User Interface components and various plug-ins which help in development for any web developer. You can instantly prototype and build sites or apps which are workable on any type of device.
There are other options available like any CSS framework can be utilized, an open grid system can be preferred, a robust mobile system viz. jQuery Mobile or PhoneGap can be chosen.
Whichever option you choose, can be managed and developed with ASP .NET.
