How to test your website on a tablet or mobile phone from Visual Studio Code

Alright, so we need to test this thing. Okay, so while we're working often it's just easier to test in a browser. Where is he? Like we've been doing but we need to fake it a little bit more. We're going to emulate an iphone and a tablet and desktop through chrome. We'll do that in a second. Another way you can do it is actually just have like a throwaway domain name and hosting account. So go to Blue Host, use that same account that you set up. Buy a new domain name called Dan's testing website. Something rather something professional. If you're going to show it to potential clients and blue hosts will divide your hosting account into two parts so that you can use it, you'll get different login, ftp details, talk to them about it, say tell them what you want to do to domain names. Same hosting. And then you just upload it like we have earlier on in this course we just upload it using our little FTP, you'll have different details for it. And then you can just test it on anything right? ...

You can just, you know, load up that website on your phone, your old ipad, your new ipad. Okay? And just check it out that way. Another way, the more official way is to use a local testing server. So we're not gonna go through how to set it up in this course. It's a little bit out of the scope. So if you're on Mac, it's really common to use Map. It is. Microsoft Apache my SQL and PHP I totally read that from down there. Okay ma'am. It's a really weird word. There's example, there's waMP. Okay, so on a Mac map would be the most common one on a pc. It's either a lamp or exempt. Probably example, basically it's software that gets installed on your computer and it allows you to fake a server on your machine as if it was a blue host but nobody else in the world can see it. So you can keep it nice and close but there is a bit of a hassle getting it set up. But in terms of testing most people, okay, we'll just test locally in the browser and emulate while the building and only do kind of more official testing a little bit later on at the moment. We were just doing this. We're doing the old drag option. Okay. And that works okay. I'm pretending I'm a desktop. I'm vaguely pretending I'm a tablet and now I'm kind of almost a mobile phone. So to get around that or emulated properly. Okay. Is right click anywhere or go to inspect or go to view and developer and go to developer tools or inspect elements. Either of these ones. Get it going, these two Okay. And what we're looking for is something like this. Okay. So this little slide bar is probably all the way out here for you. I'm not too sure. But you might have to do is because I can't get it back to Absoluteal zero. I've tried to reset it for this course but I'm not exactly sure what the default is. So up in the top here, I said it's a responsive if it's not already. Okay. And you can drag this little double line over here and you can see it and drag it past. I can drag it teeny tiny. Okay, so I don't have to use that anymore. I can actually get it to something a bit better for testing as for 400 cool things you can turn on. That might be helpful is up here. See these little dots. Okay, these are really helpful. Okay, let's turn on show media crews. So it's showing me my media queries as the ones I added. Can you see if I hover above them? It's the 768 is 400, so you can drag it at least you know exactly when this thing gets triggered. I find this really useful when I've opened up somebody else's website and you're like, how many media queries are there? And you can kind of see them all, you can click on them as well. Okay, to kind of jump it out to have a little look through the different options. Other useful things, is this Okay, kinda half looked at this. Let's look at what looks like an ipad Pro. Okay, and it kind of zooms it out a bit because it wants to show you this whole thing, but it's the right width in relation to the outside. Okay. 406 100. So our ipad Pro is about 1000 pixels across 10 24. What else we got? Let's look at they don't have them all in here. You can edit them and add your own. Okay, so I know that this is reasonably old. Okay. It's got all the new iphones but not the new pixels and not the new Galaxies. So let's go find X. You get the idea right Because it's trying to fit it all in. It's scaled it down a bit so you might just keep it at 100%. So you're not kind of that. That's what IPad pro looks a bit weird. Okay, zoomed out 41%. You might say actually I want to see it at actual size on an IPad pro, throttling. You might get into that. Okay. If you put it in low end mobile and hit reset now. Okay. What it's gonna do is it's going to try and mimic how long it would take on a really bad Internet connection. Okay, that's me or we can flip our ipad ipad Pro around. What else can we do other useful things? Device frame Here we go. Ready. It's going to look like actually do they have I don't even know if they have a device frame. Where is it? Show device frame they don't have it for the IPad pro. Let's go to IPhone four they seem to have that one. Maybe you have to turn it back on again, add high device frame show device for him that works every other time. I'm doing it. Okay. It'll have the picture of an iphone around the outside zoom out. Maybe they need to zoom out a bit. I don't know if it'll work for you. I promise. It works for me every other time. Okay. What else? It's not that important though. It'll just look like an iphone. You can do screenshots, pixel ratio. We'll talk about later on. A device type. Don't need that. That is it. I'm just kind of reading through you know how to do that. Alright, that is the super easy way to kind of mimic what it's going to look like and that's what we'll be using more and more. Especially when we start doing things like mobile. Now. The other thing is this might not look exactly the same when you're doing it. You might be doing it in the future with your flying cars. So it's not this it might not be in the right places but it'll probably be turned on in a similar place. Interview. Okay. And some of these buttons might have changed be updated but the core of it will be there. You might just have to google where it's all moved to google do like to move things around. All right. That's it for this video. Let's get on to the next one
