Testing Mobile View

Unread postby sizbut » Tue Mar 13, 2018 9:53 am

Has anyone got any good suggestions on how to test the phone output. Currently I have to go the whole hog of posting it to my webserver and then browsing on my mobile phone.

Using Google on local HTML I can use the developers tools to tell the HTML its running on a small screen device but its still the desktop view that gets shown.

The best thing to do is set up a local Apache server that you can then access on your local WiFi network. There used to be a great little setup called Server2Go but that is no longer developed. The best setup now is probably XAMPP, which gives you Apache, PHP, MySQL, Python and a lot of other stuff all in one simple package. Download here:


Emulators don't really work for testing mobile websites, both on iOS and Android. You always get things that look and work differently, without exception.
