Web design

It's so fricking hard to make a decent website and have it look awesome both on pc's and phones because your layout cant really be both extremely horizontal and extremely vertical at the same time and retain the original artistic idea.

Which device do I prioritize, anonbutts?

      True. It's like optimizing the entire world for handicapped people

    There's your mistake. You can't optimize for such a wide span of screen sizes. The way to properly do it, is make a VERY well designed site for desktop devices, and slap together some responsive design shit for mobile devices, including tablets. Mobile users will accept it anyway, and for the desktop site you can maximize information density.

      prioritize adult users = desktops

        You made my point entirely. You make separate sites for mobile and desktop. Doing this, the desktop experience will be great and the mobile experience, too.

        Tiktok doesnt just look bad on desktop, it's broken. It even says "something went wrong" at the top of the page.
        50% of the time it's completely unpredictable when I use it on Firefox.

    depends on ur target, iirc, the phone users have surpassed the desktop ones

    But despite that it might still make sense to.prioritize one over the other
    media queries is what u looking for, but if you wanna go full autismo mode, read their user agents or whatever you need to determine if theyre a phone and serve the web solution accordingly, for context nearly nobody does this cause it usually leads to twice the content to edit

      >read their user agents or whatever

      I use a self-made web browser and I have a custom user-agent that says "frick you".
      I wonder how much this disrupts my web experience.

        No one sane uses user agents. You can simply use their viewport size.

        It doesn't disrupt, actually quite the opposite: you've made yourself perfectly recognizable, so you're being catered to even harder than the average person.
        Your digital profile must be very detailed!

    I built a complex site for a year until one day I wrecked it in favor of phone zoomers.
    Now it has big simple buttons and looks like a toy for babies

    dunno how experienced you are, but anon, flex will fix all your problems. Just search how to use display:flex and those things, it's actually easier than it looks.

    And if you know how it works, congrats, it's easier now. Just flex and @media away, don't be lazy

      I like display:block
      flex fricks things up, so hard to align anything vertically with that shit

        The only good use for flex is multiple columns with one that can expand which can break into rows. Everything else is convoluted.

    No need for web design. Just turn on autoindex and serve everything as static files.

      I did that but my zoomer nephew didnt even know what he was looking at
      He was confused, almost scared.
      He needs colorful, rounded buttons without tech jargon like mentions of file extensions

    just add ten gbs worth of javascript frameworks to make it jump between different versions based on screen size (both versions should be the same apart from the menu should change from words on desktop to three lines on the phone (to make it harder to navigate via touch))

      Media query. You basically set (horizontal or vertical) resolution thresholds under which different rules apply.

        I can do this. But does pixel-based detection always work? What if someone has a super developed smartphone that has a horizontal resolution of over 1000 pixels?
