Responsive Theme Preview

  • Brief description:
    • Have you ever wanted to give content creators the power to preview how their posts will look on mobile devices, even before publishing them? There’s a module for that!

    • How old: created in Feb 2013
    • Versions available: 2.1.1 for D9 & D10, 8.x-1.1 for D8 & D9
  • Maintainership
    • Officially maintenance fixes only, but the last release was in the past week
    • Number of open issues: 21, only 2 of which are bugs on the 2.x branch
    • Test coverage? Y
  • Usage stats:
    • 8,258 sites
  • Maintainer(s):
    • Last couple of releases by Rajeshreeputra, but has a team of maintainers
  • Module features and usage
    • Adds a dropdown to the secondary toolbar to select a device whose display resolution you want to preview for the current page
    • Preview launches in a modal overlay, and can be rotated, to see the landscape view
    • The list of devices can be configured to keep up with the most popular devices as they change over time, including phones and tablets
    • If you’re not using the admin toolbar, also offers a block to access the preview links
    • Not a perfect representation of how the page will look on a mobile device, but a useful way to see a quick approximation of how a page will look on different screen sizes
