Bye bye jQuery Mobile

jQuery Mobile lets you create slick mobile web applications, and that’s what we did with nearby.lk. However, when we wanted to add more content and customize it heavily, jQuery Mobile stood in our way. So we decided to move away from it.

The migration wasn’t hard. We replaced jQuery Mobile with responsive css and a mobile first design. Since we don’t have to stick to jQuery Mobile design patterns we have a lot of customizability. This lead to a cleaner design - the design that is visible and the design underneath.

We are still testing the new UI, and planning to release on nearby.lk in a few weeks time.
