Hi all

We have been using the mobile UI very successfully the last few years and are pretty sad to see it being removed in version 6.3.
Even with responsive rendering we are still loosing the customized mobile components, awesome mobile navigation and the mobile menus.

How hard would it be to take the current state of the mobile UI as of version 6.2.7 and create an extension for it in 6.3?

I would not mind getting involved in this process; but would need some guidance...

Any help would be greatly appreciated:)

Regards
Rainer

I am not going to lie it would probably be a significant amount of code and work. What I would suggest is that you create a GitHub project and try and fork the mobile stuff as a standalone jar something like "primefaces-mobile-6.2.jar" something users can just include.

If you get it all working we can talk about moving that project under the PrimeFaces Extensions umbrella.

The source is still there in the github tag, you can just get it ;)

But IMO it would be better if you would put the hours into "making PF more responsive", instead of forking the old code.
Always Bet On Prime (+ Extensions)!

Agreed 100% @tandraschko I think some users just have a lot of mobile code deployed they want to keep running without an extensive rewrite or regression testing.

I luckily don't use Mobile so I have no time to devote trying to fork this.
