  2. Select "Add to Home screen" on your device, if supported.

Selecting mobile or desktop

The skin should automatically choose mobile or desktop layouts, but you may also force one or the other.

  1. http://<yourserver>:9000/material/mobile will force mobile layout
  2. http://<yourserver>:9000/material/desktop will force desktop layout


The skin may be installed on a machine separate to LMS. Currently this is how it's developed. e.g.

  1. cd in the material folder
  2. Start python's simple HTTP server - e.g. python -m SimpleHTTPServer
  3. Access on localhost via http://localhost:8000/mobile.html?lms= or http://localhost:8000/desktop.html?lms= (replace with the IP address of the LMS server)
