Features

  • Mobile version for Storify Homepage using jQueryMobile.
  • 100% front-end only.
  • Homepage data is pulled from http://storify.com/storifyfeatured/homepage.json
  • Additional story is pulled and rendered inline in the same page. Due to a bug in jQueryMobile, the back-button won't work without a clunky hack (around line ~197 in storification.js)
  • Basic support for different content elements: text, website, video (YouTube), Tweet, and any other types of content will be rendered using a generic template.

Verdicts: jQueryMobile is still a pretty alpha state. For the navigation bug, probably we need a backend script to pull the data and feed the page using AJAX, instead of doing everything in one-page like now. jQueryMobile doesn't do so well with multiple sub-pages within one file.
