Mobility Theme Featuring jQuery Mobile

Mobile Theme for RavenNuke

 
 
Mobility Theme Featuring jQuery Mobile

Currently in production, Mobility is a theme specificallty targeted for mobile devices utilizing jQuery Mobile. Using mobile device detection, Mobility can be automatically displayed to mobile users, while all other visitors will view your standard "desktop" theme.

One of the coolest features on jQuery Mobile is the built in AJAX-powered navigation system, which is really what makes the framework viable in a mobile context. This allows mobile users, often with cache restrictions, to not have to re-download all the dependencies (JavaScript and CSS files) for each page visit.

Look for a Mobility beta sometime late 2012 to early 2013. and we'll keep you informed with updates along the way.
