[EP-tech] Re: EPrints and mobile?



Hi Nick,


Unfortunately, an "out-of-the-box" EPrints instance is not optimised for mobile. The UI is not responsive and in order to make EPrints mobile-friendly, you need to use a responsive framework like Bootstrap, Foundation, or Skeleton.  There is an EPrints Boostrap theme available, which you can download here<https://github.com/eprintsug/bootstrap> - conversely, you can also enable it via the EPrints bazaar.


Having worked with the Bootstrap theme before, you will likely want to customise it further as many of the elements have the traditional Bootstrap look and may not be in line with your institution's branding. Also, because some of the changes made by the theme rely on JavaScript manipulating HTML elements and CSS, there is a risk that it could cause a mobile browser to slow down.


I hope this helps - feel free to get in touch if you have any other questions.


Thanks!


Cheers,

Andrew

I'm sure it is, but I've been asked to comment on whether EPrints is optimised for mobile. Is anyone able to comment?



Thanks



Nick
