Let the layout scale percentual with absolut maximum

    Hey guys,

    I just wanted to tell you that I absolutely love Mantra. Though I feel that there could be something improved in the way layouts are scaled. We have the abolity to scale them percentual to the brower window which makes them look awesome on smaller screens and tablets etc. But it causes the whole thing to get stretched and kinda ugly if the windows get to big.

    On the other hand absolute layouts look great in large windows and screens but kinda crappy in smaller windows.


    So why not combine the two? Let layouts scale percentual with an absolute maximum which keeps it from blowing up to much but still having the advantages of small scale views. Is that technically possible? I would really love to see that 🙂

    Actually that’s kinda implemented already under the form of the Mobile view. If you use it with the Absolute Dimensions.

    The absolute dimensions are used on desktop browsers, but once the screen resolution drops under 800px (mobile devices) the layout becomes relative. You can give it a try by manually rescaling the browser window.
