= is_it_mobile * http://rubyforge.org/projects/contentfree/ == DESCRIPTION: Simply determines if a user agent is for a mobile device. Comes ready with a module for Rails 2 & 3 to enable multiviews (respond_to with a custom mimetype) for mobile devices (see Synopsis). == FEATURES/PROBLEMS: * Fast & Lightweight (doesn't use anything like WURFL, which would be overkill for a quick check) == SYNOPSIS: The lightweight tests used in IsItMobile are almost completely based on the work of Andy Moore in an article at http://www.andymoore.info/php-to-detect-mobile-phones/. I added a couple more user agents to the mix and obviously Rubified it. It recognizes 99% of the mobile user agents from http://www.zytrax.com/tech/web/mobile_ids.html It has nearly no false positives using the user agents from http://www.zytrax.com/tech/web/browser_ids.htm The ones that don't quite pass are very rare (and some are even questionable appearing in their respective lists) == INSTALL: sudo gem install contentfree-is_it_mobile --source http://gems.github.com == USAGE: With Rails 2.0, simply add this to config/environment.rb: config.gem 'contentfree-is_it_mobile', :lib => 'is_it_mobile/rails', :source => "http://gems.github.com" Then, just create your views using suffixes of mobile.erb instead of html.erb You can also just use IsItMobile directly: IsItMobile.mobile?( 'NokiaN90-1/3.0545.5.1 Series60/2.8 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1' ) # => true == REQUIREMENTS: If using Rails, version must be >= 2.0 for multiview capability
