slablet: Stylish CSS layout for iPad and more

If you like Sencha Touch, the HTML5 mobile framework we recently covered in Episode 0.3.0, but long for a more declarative, markup-driven approach, then keep an eye on Slablet from Fellowship Technologies.

Landscape

Slablet, as defined by Urban Dictionary:

(n.) - a slang word for a computer tablet such as the iPad or other branded tablet devices

Unlike Sencha’s JavaScript-centric approach, Slablet opts for a more unobtrusive implementation. Content is created in HTML, styled with CSS, and driven by jQuery. The project uses iScroll to provide overflow:scroll in its fixed height elements.

Fellowship has provided a few nice looking demos.

Horizontal

If you’re wanting to start developing split-pane interfaces for the iPad, give Slablet a look.
