CHAPTER 1: Getting Started > Application Components

Application Components

Now you're almost ready to start building your mobile web app. But before we write any code, we need to put all the major parts of your application on the table to see how they fit together.

This will also form the large buckets for your project plan. This will help you estimate how long your project will take and at the same time give you a product launch checklist.

Your app will have several parts, each of which is detailed below and in Figure 1-5:

  • Site core – The HTML pages of your web site
  • CSS – The style sheets for your site that will determine it's look and feel
  • JavaScript – The part of your site that allows it to interact with the APIs and to dynamically pull content from your site's database and API
  • External libraries – The parts of your site like a mobile framework, jQuery, or plugins
