mojoPortal Tips: Check out Mojomo!

Last month, mojoPortal 2.3.9.0 was released, and a new Codeplex project was introduced for designers to contribute HTML5/CSS3 themes for mojoPortal. That in turn inspired Allan Duff to start the mojomo project, with an alternative framework for the mojoPortal UI.

From the Codeplex site: “I wanted to build a responsive, build once, mojoPortal boilerplate to work across as many different mobile platforms and browsers as possible, including support for old IE versions. I also wanted it to be modular so that I could swap whole chunks of CSS in or out easily.”

Mojomo is built as an alternative framework for mojoPortal skins, based on best practices such as grid layouts, responsive design and media queries.

After giving the base template a test run, and viewing it on both Chrome and Android emulator, I can definitely say that it’s flexible and responsive to multiple screen sizes.   For a designer or developer who’s worked on previous versions of mojoPortal skins, it’s fairly simple to follow, and easy to identify the elements as they’re laid out.

Overall, I think this is a great addition to the mojoPortal toolkit, and I’m looking forward to seeing what comes out of this project.
