Migrating to JQuery before MobileFirst implementation

Before we can start working on the #MobileFirst design we need to rewrite all of our javascript code in #JQuery. Then we can decide whether to use #Bootstrap or #ZurbFoundation as the CSS framework and rebuild all the UIs. I have done the first commit to my personal repository:

https://github.com/rmdstudio/anahita

which contains some of the JQuery code that I have written. Feel free to fork t...

This week's #Anahita #Hackathon was focused on prototyping #JQuery plugins and reading #emberJS docs. The goal is to rewrite the existing javascript code in Anahita. Still undecided about the CSS framework, though the current release of #Bootstrap doesn't seem to be completely ready for mobile unless you are theming a CMS with pages that are used for reading and browsing only. Right now leaning...

This week's #Anahita #Hackathon was mostly accomplished by viewing good examples of #MobileFirst on different mobile devices (iPhone, iPad, Android), doing lots of sketches, and reading #Bootstrap and #ZurbFoundation docs. I believe we can start coding now.

Bootstrap it is

After contemplating and doing some research we have decided to stay with #Bootstrap for Anahita 4.*

A simple comparison of the repositories on GitHub shows that Bootstrap has 7 times more forks and nearly 4 times more stargazers. I did a quick survey in #LaunchAcademy and couldn't find a single person who had used Foundation in the past, but there were a few who were familiar with the project....

I had some good progress this weekend rewriting the InfinitScroll widget in JQuery with much less code than what we have right now. This process will continue until all of Anahita javascript library is ported to #JQuery and simplified. By then hopefully #Boostrap has updated and then we can do another comparison with #ZurbFoundation and decide which one to use. For now, the focus is on the java...

Looks like #JQuery website, #ZurbFoundation, and #Bootstrap use slightly different structure for their plugins. Need to find a pattern that works best for #Anahita

Thank you Johan, yes #Sass #Bower and #Grunt are also used in both #ZurbFoundation and #Bootstrap.

This week's #Anahita #Hackathon was all code and documentation reading. Went through all Anahita JS code as well documentation for #JQuery, #Bootstrap, and yes the #ZURBFoundation of course.
