eZ Publish on mobile devices

Thursday 12 August 2010 5:11:22 pm - 4 replies

Hello !

I am planning to make an eZ Publish site fully compatible with mobile devices (especially iPad). My little experience of eZ tells me that I will have to keep it very simple, and to optimize and optimize again if I want my page to be loaded rapidly...

Has anyone ever tried that, and do have any advices ?

Thank you

Hello Kévin,

I recently had to customize an eZ Publish site to be more compatible with the iPhone/iPad/Android.

I found out that ezoe (the online editor) does not work at all on these platforms.

I also had to write some template operators to detect the various platform user agents.

I had to customize many templates to further customize the site to look properly on these platforms as well as function without the ezoe.

I hope this helps happy.gif Emoticon

Cheers,

Thank you for sharing your experience, Heath !

Do you know the reason or have any hypothesis why ezoe does not work on mobile devices (I precisely need some parts of template from ezoe...) ?

How do you detect if the device accessing your site is a mobile ?

If anyone else want to share, feel free to do it !

Thank you !

Hello Kévin.

Ran across this the other day

http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/opensource/library/os-androidiphone1/

Listing 1 may help you with a concrete example of querying user agent.

The concept of "media queries", where the browser reports properties such as screen size, is also introduced as a way of moving beyond querying for every possible user agent string.

Hope you find the article and some of the concepts useful for your project.

As far as any other advice, if delivering video to iPad, not Flash capable, you may also be interested in this article regarding a workaround using object tags.

Best wishes for a successful implementation!
