Almost every new client these days wants a mobile version of their website. It’s practically essential after all: one design for the Android, another for the iPhone, the iPad, netbook, Kindle — and all screen resolutions must be compatible, too. In the next five years, we’ll likely need to design for a number of additional inventions. When will the madness stop? It won’t, of course.

In the field of Web design and development, we’re quickly getting to the point of being unable to keep up with the endless new resolutions and devices. For many websites, creating a website version for each resolution and new device would be impossible, or at least impractical. Should we just suffer the consequences of losing visitors from one device, for the benefit of gaining visitors from another? Or is there another option?

The Answer to this Problem
Responsive Web design is the approach that suggests that design and development should respond to the user’s behavior and environment based on screen size, platform and orientation. The practice consists of a mix of flexible grids and layouts, images and an intelligent use of CSS media queries. As the user switches from their laptop to iPad, the website should automatically switch to accommodate for resolution, image size and scripting abilities. In other words, the website should have the technology to automatically respond to the user’s preferences. This would eliminate the need for a different design and development phase for each new gadget on the market.

The uikit Modular Framework
Our websites are based on the uikit Modular Framework developed by Sascha Dube and is team at Yootheme.

It is a lightweight framework, developed in LESS, that provides a comprehensive and extensive collection of HTML, CSS, and JS components. It is fully responsive and follows the mobile-first approach for a consistent mobile experience. To avoid conflicts with custom CSS or other frameworks it uses consistent and conflict-free naming conventions, with classes name-spaced with the uk- prefix.

It is notable that uikit is very small in file size, thus providing fast loading times. The developers have tried to find a balance between providing all of the features needed for modern web development and not bloating the code. The following chart shows the file sizes of the minified CSS and JavaScript files of uikit compared to other front end frameworks.
