I’ll take anything that helps me move faster in my development cycle and things like this mobile boilerplate are awesome, instantly worth the time investigating whether or not it’s up to snuff and quickly getting a bookmark if it puts out well.
Similar to the full HTML5 boilerplate, this mobile one comes with analytics (Google Analytics), icons of touch devices, normalize.css (an alternative to CSS resets), a minimal jQuery-like library, and even Modernizr detection. You’ll even get some apache settings to create quality site performance, which you can get here, a node build script, and even an ant build script.
If you’re confused on where exactly you should start you can head over to the public Wiki and get your questions answered.
Do you have any other great resources to help others get started with mobile development? Although this boilerplate doesn’t directly relate to WordPress in terms of a plugin or explicit theme it is still an incredibly helpful resource that could be included in some of your WordPress-centric work.
Thanks to the guys that put it together!
