The Goldfish Layout: Growing to Fit Its World
Once upon a time, there was only one screen size, the standard. Now, there are many: the Retina on your macbook, the display on your desktop, your smartphone, the TV hooked up to your Wii, even the watch on your wrist. And guess what, there's a lot more coming and probably in places you haven't thought of, like your car. So how do you, as a developer, make sure your web page works on all of them? You could use CSS media queries. But then you might be making breakpoints and layouts for the rest of your life. And have fun maintaining the codebase with all of that in it, it'd be a bloated nightmare. So now what? What if I told you that you can still solve this problem? What if I told you that there's a layout that will figure out how to fit itself on a screen for you? Even on screens that don't exist yet.
