rFrame

A responsive frame emulator to aid with mobile development

There are so many neat responsive viewport tools out there. Firefox even has a nifty little development feature called "Responsive Design Mode". But being as I do a lot of work inside RapidWeaver, which uses webkit, I have no way (that I know of) to take advantage of any of these solutions outside of anything other then a full blown browser window.

So on a sunny afternoon I hacked together rFrame, a self reflecting jQuery function that emulates the view port sizes of a handful (for now) of devices to give you a rough idea of how your web site/application might look on that device.

It's pretty crude right now and only works in Chrome and Safari for the time being, so fork it and make it better.

Installation

  • Download the latest release.
  • Clone the repo: git clone git://github.com/seyDoggy/rFrame.git
  • Install with Bower: bower install rFrame

Instructions (General)

  1. Include jQuery in your page (likely just before the body tag).

    <script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.9.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
  2. Include the rframe plugin just after the call to jQuery.

    <script src="js/jquery.rframe.js"></script>
  3. Open the page in a browser and type the following in the console:

    $.rFrame()
  4. Use the selection menu to pick a device and orientation.

  5. If you want to start with a particular viewport, you can specify that too:

    $.rFrame({device:'iPad',view:1})
  6. And of course you can do all of this from within a script as opposed to running it from the console:

    <script>
    	$.rFrame({
    		device:'iPad',
    		view:1
    	});
    </script>

Instructions (RapidWeaver developers)

For RapidWeaver developers looking to incorporate rFrame as an option in their themes, ignore the above and do the following:

  1. Include RwSetGet in your scripts.

  2. Include rFrame in your theme folders.

  3. Make an options file that includes the following script (options are... erm... optional):

    jQuery(function ($) {
    	$.getScript(RwGet.pathto("some/place/jquery.rframe.min.js"), function() {
    		$.rFrame({
    			device:'iPhone4',
    			view:1
    		});
    	});
    });
  4. Make an option and include it in your Theme.plist
