Tools For Responsive Website Design
Here are a collection of tools available to help with creating responsive website design.
CSS and WebPutty
One of the disadvantages of writing CSS code for a website is that without a live view of what the code is going to create when it gets published live, you are effectively working blind until you upload the code, refresh the browser and wait to see the results.
One helpful tool is WebPutty. This is available to make writing CSS easier for designers and allow them to view exactly what changes their code are making to the layout of the website in live time. Essentially WebPutty shows you your code in action as you type it.
Responsive Sites Testing
Designing for multiple size devices can be tricky to get right every time without a reliable view of what your website is going to look like at the required screen sizes. This helpful tool allows you to view the latest website that you have built in multiple size browser screens to ensure that your code is working as it should.
When designing fluid or responsive webpages, the ability to adjust a single component within a container and display it according to the screen size requirements can provide a powerful tool in maintaining the required layout to a more specific design.
Resize My Browser is an easy to use tool that transforms your browser size according to a range of presets so that you can view your website as it will appear across a range of screen sizes.
Responsivepx is a tool developed for website developers that allows designers to view the current browser according to widths and heights set using the sliders. This offers an easy method of viewing your website as it appears throughout required browser sizes.
Protofluid is an easy to use tool for testing any url in a range of pre determined browser sizes that relate to actual screen sizes of existing popular devices.
