Responsive web design is becoming more clearly an important specification from our customers. Allthough the customer is mostly already satisfied when we port the same UI to different devices, responsive web design is just the top of the iceberg when we talk about optimizing web enabled Notes applications for different devices.
After the presentation I checked a couple of our corporate sites that are responsive with Akamai’s Mobitest and yes, they are responsive but the builders seem to have just looked at what’s sticking out of the water.
Reflecting this back to our development templates for Notes client, Web browser and Mobile device I can conclude we made some basic mistakes. Yes, the application layout control from the extension library may help you provide quickly a UI for desktop clients but this is not the web.
Why did IBM did not come up with a responsive application layout control and added responsive utility classes in OneUI? Or should we dissect the OneUI again like Declan Lynch did and solve it with SSJS?
Back to the drawing board that is for sure…
