responsive vs adaptive

One of the difficult questions to pick out a right answer, when we consider the choices of making a perfect website design pattern these days may be between the superiority of responsive and adaptive. 

Professionals working at many of the website designing companies that are well-known for offering various kinds of custom website development services have a difference of opinion on the question. Some talks high of responsive web designs as a whole, and other stand for the use of adaptive website design. 

In short both these web designing patterns have their own merits as well as demerits. Let us dig into the differences between both of these patterns, and find out which suits website development activities the best?

Ever Changing Responsive Website Design


Optimal viewing experience offered by the responsive website design makes them stand out of all other website building platforms. The screen resolution of devices is not a matter of concern for a responsive design. 

The entire working mechanism of responsive website design can be compressed to a single word, namely ‘fluid-grids’. The web layout created using fluid grids will automatically adjust to the screen-size of any devices. You will find only single web layout at work, and it resizes itself according to the nature of screen resolution of the device.

CSS3 media queries are utilized in designing responsive layouts to react with so much of flexibility. According to the browser utilized by the user this fluid grids shrink as well as resizes the contents in a web page.

Adaptive Web Designs Having Some Minute Changes


Adaptive web designs work with the help of multiple web layouts. There is no single layout like the responsive website design. While designing adaptive websites, a web developer creates multiple web layout for different screen sizes. 

All these web layouts will be created in advance. Say it has mobile oriented layout, a tablet based layout, and a desktop based web layout. When a relative web layout is called by the user, it automatically detects the device’s resolution which is handled by the users, and opens accordingly. 

The working nature of a responsive website design is different from an adaptive website designA collection of static layouts that are positioned on breakpoints contributes to the working of adaptive web layouts. 

Here developers create web pages based on three ranges. Say, 320 pixels for Smart phone devices, 760 pixels for tablets, and 960 pixels for creating desktop browsers. 

According to the browser window used by the visitor, an adaptive web design works. It takes some time, and never loads in an instant. After identifying the browser-size and the device resolution, it displays the apt web layout.



Which Web Layout You Should Prefer?


Before selecting a perfect web pattern for the clients, a web development company should consider several aspects. If you are planning to design a website within a limited budget, adaptive layouts will suit you the best. It is less flexible, but can be built within a little time. Web developers can create adaptive layouts so quickly. 

A web developer should be very much clear that the website he is going to design comprises of very few images, and is not for providing optimal experience. Hence the adaptive layouts will prove better for him. 

If a web developer gets sufficient amount of time as well as money to complete the web development process which demands optimal viewing experience, a responsive website design will be a great choice. It has fantastic flexibility, speed, and SEO friendliness, but consumes a lot of time and money.

php7 vs hhvm

What benefits can PHP 7 bring to the development of websites? This is a quite  common question asked by php developers for the last couple of years. 

PHP 7, released at the end of November 2015 is a far more optimized version which help developers to double the performance of website. Right with the launch of PHP’s latest version, another discussion is capturing the attention of web-world. It is regarding the performance of PHP7 vs HHVM

HHVM has already established itself as a virtual tool for fast web  development. Many of the designers do not know much about PHP 7, hence it causes a bit confusion about the innovations that are to be included in it. 

Here is an attempt to take all the discussions as well as questions regarding these  topics a bit forward. 

HHVM: An Explanation

  • The work on HHVM was initiated by the Social Media giant facebook in 2008. The real intention was to create a tool which helps to convert PHP scripts to C++
  • Once the PHP script gets converted into C++, it will be very easy to compile it and execute. Facebook users were increasing at a fast rate in that point of time, and the need to increase the speed was deadly for facebook. By working on HHVM, they have made it successful to an extent. 
  • This Hip Hop Virtual Machine(HHVM) makes use of a Just-In-Time compiler for converting the PHP code into a type of bytecode. This machine code assists in HHVM to increase the performance to a great extent. 
  • However, this virtual tool created by facebook works with a great speed when compared to the use of PHP 5.

PHP 7: An Explanation

  • PHP 7 is an attempt of the communities that support the platform against the rise of HHVM. The aim is to build a platform which works 100 times faster than PHP 5
  • Then another question may raise in mind like why not PHP 6? Instead of releasing PHP 6, why we are talking about PHP 7? Work for releasing PHP 6 started very early and is delayed for many years. 
  • Thus the title, PHP 6 proved to be ineffective, and the community decided to go with a new title, PHP 7. Fortunately, it has been launched by the end of November 2015. Even before its’ release the discussions on the working of PHP 7 and HHVM have been raised.

PHP 7 vs HHVM: A Comparison

  • Both work with the aid of same language, but the basic difference arises in the way in which both these titles interpret the same PHP code. 
  • PHP uses a free interpreter which helps in the direct execution of codes. PHP exhibits  content desired by the web user by generating the HTML codes. 
  • On the other hand, HHVM works by altering the php codes into byte codes. These byte codes are rendered into machine codes and then the execution happens. 
  • All the things that cause the performance of PHP codes get removed at the time of this rendering of codes into machine codes by causing a faster performance of HHVM. When it comes to the writing of codes, both work in the same way. 
  • For using HHVM, users must install it in the server, and invoke it with the aid of HHVM command line itself. 
  • PHP 7 is rightly made available as expected in November 2015 itself, and many developers have tested it’s performance, and they claim it offers improved performance in some situations compared to HHVM, and in some circumstances of HHVM works better. 

Benefits of using HHVM

  • Dynamic translation is used, and it will help websites to run faster in many occasions. 
  • It needs less memory space to proceed with requests.
  • HHVM developers keep on increasing the types of PHP codes that they can covert into machine language having a very good speed. WorPress is an instance to the point. 
  • HHVM is open for every developer to install, edit, and work with. 

Benefits of using PHP 7

  • PHP 7 developers claim that users do not have to install HHVM to increase the performance of applications.
  • PHP 7 is a long time effort of communities that have offered stable help all the time. Thus we can expect fast performance, and less number of bugs in this new version of PHP.

Is Making A Choice Between The Two Even More Difficult?


Luckily, the stable version of PHP 7  has been released by the end of previous November 2015, and it offers an edge for php web development in totality. The new version claims outstanding performance. 

All these do not mean that companies will very soon stop the using of HHVM. HHVM ,still claims faster development in certain circumstances. 

Facebook developers are consistently working on it, and they have extended HHVM support to Apple devices, as well. If we consider the working of PHP 7, and HHVM, both are head to head, causing a confusion in the minds of users uprightly.


Developing a theme or template for the purpose of website creation is not the easiest of jobs, even though there are many open source customization services available. Most of the web developers first create HTML templates, and then start WordPress coding corresponding to it. This activity can prove to be very stressful, for developers will have to rewrite the HTML codes to PHP. 

There are other groups of developers who increase the speed of coding by writing the codes in a language which WordPress can read quickly. Then no point of rewriting of codes will come up in the end. Those developers who want to work efficiently will start working with the support of theme frameworks. 

In this article, we can identify what are theme frameworks? What are its’ uses? And what is the best WordPress theme framework?

Use of theme frameworks will bring developers certain benefits such as rapid development, execution of more functional options, pre-built set of widgets& SEO options, easy fixing of bugs, no particular need of professional knowledge to customize the codes you have written, and over all great community support. 

If you are thinking of developing WordPress websites, it will be a great idea to use theme frameworks for endless reasons as mentioned above. By following these theme frameworks, you can get fine support from the parent themes. When specially coming to WordPress, we can find a handful of purposeful parent themes, and some of the better themes are mentioned below.

make-attractive-sign-up-form

Users interest in your product as well as website is one of the major aspects that lead your website to success. Sign up form ensures user’s interest in your website. A sign up form may serve different purposes ranging from creation of the user account to the login process. Strictly speaking, without the aid of sign up form commercial websites are feeling difficult to work with. 

A professional custom web development company should create a wide range of sign up forms for their clients to bring them good business. It is one facet in a website which should be designed without any flaws. 

A minute error in a sign up form will cause your entire business. Let us now look into some steps to create a powerful and user interactive sign up forms.


  • The best sign up form should be simple in nature, and it should not hinder attention of the users, for that expert developers make labels right above the fields itself. It enables users to fill in the tabs so easily, without bothering the alignment. The visual appeal of the labels aligned right to the top of the fields makes users simple to identify the meanings of that fields.

  • Auto validation options should work promptly in a sign up form. It prohibits users from entering the wrong data into the fields. Within a fraction of seconds, it should notify the users about the wrong data entry. For instance, email id, phone numbers based on locations, and automatic country selection, so on should notify the user in an instant and automatically.

  • Provide the right information to the users in bits of short descriptions. This process is technically titled as Microcopy. In the sign-up forms of certain organizations, you might have seen small lines of descriptions written below the card payment options detailing the working of it. It is a case in point of microcopy to inform users about certain valid information. Some sign up forms may need the activity of verification. 

  • Hence developers must provide users the hints about the entire activity when they click the relevant fields itself. Provide hints to avoid all kinds of confusion that occur in the minds of users while filling in the sign up tabs.
  • In many of the typical sign up forms users might have seen the popular one word such as ‘submit’ as a call to action statement at the end. Instead of using these kinds of traditional terms, developers should involve users with some small phrases like ‘come join the fun’ as a call to action button in the sign up form.
  • Do not include any unnecessary fields in your sign up forms. Put the entire idea into the web page in a brief manner. Just help users to complete the activity of filling the form in a matter of minutes.
  • Social media integration is very important while designing sign up forms these days. Users must be given an option to sign up using their existing accounts in any of the social media web pages like Facebook, or Twitter. It helps users to ease through the process of account creation, or signing up.
  • Last but not the least, the integration of security aspects. It can be done by means of adding a banner of already established organisations. Such as ‘visa verified’ while working with payment gateways, or ‘Norton’ protected to offer users confidence about the virus protection so on.

Bringing It Altogether


A sign up form is indeed the one which brings business to your organization. All organisations having large or small scale business have flawless sign up forms in their websites. So it is the responsibility of every custom web development company to integrate powerful sign up forms in the websites.

build-html5-mobile-apps


The craze for mobile applications is still on the way up. Literally, we can get everything done in our daily life with the aid of smart phone applications. HTML5 together with JavaScript has simply added the scope and potential features of mobile applications. 

Every mobile application development company sticks to the use of HTML5 for it has been widely accepted by all the key players in the world of technology. Mobile applications created by using HTML5 are more user-friendly, and expressive, but a developer should look into certain aspects while developing HTML5 applications for making it really outstanding.

Sketch Your App with Superb User Interface


Before triggering your HTML5 mobile app, you should do some basic planning. Just trace out all other similar applications as yours, and sketch every detail. Code it in a better and in a different way by giving it elegant touches of a super interface which itself creates a ‘wow’ feel for users.

Choice of App Types Always Matters


What app type clients need to be created? What are their basic requirements? A good developer chooses an apt app type after correctly identifying the needs of his client. There are packaged app types and hosted app types. 

All the applications that get listed in the app store, and are readily available for downloading in a compressed format come under the category of packaged app types. Applications can also be hosted with the aid of web servers, as well. Choose the best app type which suits your requirements.

Multiple Operating System Compatibility


One of the best characteristics, which decide on the quality of an HTML5 mobile applications is the multiple OS support. The application should work without any errors in all popular platforms such as iOS, android, and blackberry. For this purpose web API, the check points and the working atmosphere of the application should be checked in detail.  

Compress the Details in Small File Sizes


All users may not experience good browsing speed all the time. An HTML5 application embellished in a large file size will make the operating system work so slow. Neatly compressed HTML5 files having small file sizes work pretty well for all users. Another factor which helps small file sizes is obviously the storage space. 

However, we expand the data cards or internal memory of smart phones, it hardly comes close to the storage options as in a desktop or laptop. Hence keeping your HTML5 file sizes small will lead to speedy performance. 

Smaller Screen Resolutions


Every day a new mobile device is getting introduced, and the screen sizes of all devices may not be the size. With the introduction of responsive designs, HTML5 got a added advantage. If your HTML5 mobile application opens comfortably in all devices, the amount of acceptance it receives among the users will also be high. 

Importance of Localized Applications


Best instance to the point is the search engine Google itself. If we check its development over the last years, we will see a great amount of localization in terms of language, and even the setting itself. Localization gains plenty of popularity for the things related to technology, then how can applications stand behind the concept. 

A good application should be localized in all means of interfaces, and interaction. Users prefer to localize applications served  along with the support of regional languages. Hence HTML5 applications, whether it is hosted or packaged, will grab more number of users when it gets localized. 

Conclusion


An update of HTML5, an improved HTML6 will be soon released, and developers are expecting powerful features in a simplified way. Thus every mobile application development company awaits the launch of HTML6 for building even more dynamic applications.
