EBDUG #8 - A Content First Approach to Responsive Design


Brian Young and Megan Miller

Responsive design is the future of the web. More and more people are using mobile devices of all shapes and sizes to access the web and, more than ever, websites need to respond to this changing landscape of devices. Yet there are many different ways people are approaching this in the Drupal community.

Brian and Megan will tease apart what they mean by “responsive web design,” focusing specifically on a “content first” approach to designing responsive layouts. They will discuss various aspects to consider, including preservation of content hierarchy, support and strategy for complex layouts, and ease of implementation for site builders, content editors, and designers.

They will also demo Open Framework, a new Drupal theme that uses Bootstrap and provides a simple yet powerful way to create complex responsive layouts, and discuss the complexities of designing a responsive theme for an ever-changing, multi-device landscape.

 

Brian Young and Megan Miller work at Stanford University IT Services, designing and creating Drupal themes for use across campus. They are the maintainers of the Open Framework theme, which is used as the base theme for Stanford’s Drupal theme development.

    Great stuff. Stanford looks like they've done some amazing work with openframework, and m2serve looks like it could be an amazing tool.

    Excited to see what updates have been made on Open Framework; seeing Brian present it two years ago at Stanford Drupal Camp was a big inspiration for Kalatheme.

    I was about to look into Open Framework, soon. So, great timing!
