4 Resources to Get Started with Responsive Web Design

Alfred talked about Responsive web design in an earlier article and since then we’ve been having lots of fun with Responsive web designs on our projects. Today we thought it might be useful to share some of the resources that we used to get us started on our responsive design journey.

Framework – BootStrap from Twitter

There are a number of frameworks to choose from when getting started, but we really liked Bootstrap from Twitter. It has everything you’ll need to get going, including a responsive grid system, Jquery and all the useful plugins you’ll need to deliver cross platform goodness.

Testing – Screenfly & ResponsivePX

Screenfly Responsive Web Design Testing
ScreenFly and ResponsivePX are simple but effective tools to easily test your responsive web designs in different viewports. I particularly like the wide range of preset screen sizes available in Screenfly.
