I want to create a no-server 'Build-Your-PC' webapp. There's really wouldn't be much to it. The app itself would consist of several dropdown menus (stylized to look decent, of course /> ). Based on filler information like budget and previous component selection, the items in the dropdown would change. I would 'host' the site using google drive's website hosting feature or one of the dropbox apps.
The user should be able to navigate to the URL a single time and from then on, be able to use the app offline. TO update the list of products, the user would revisit the site. I want to use HTML5 techniques (not a real product, so compatibility isn't especially important). I imagine I could create a 'productcatalogue.js' file and have it update localstorage.
I BELIEVE what I am trying to do is something very similiar to a vlookup table in Excel.
I am familiar with most of the JS syntax and jQuery, but I've never personally had to use things like prototypal-inheritence or those fancy JS frameworks (or if you even use both of those together). Do you think this sort of project requires a framework? I would like to know so I can ask questions about JS frameworks or, if not, I can start coding immediately.
is 'responsive design' something I need to consider from the beginning or it is possible to implement it by adding additional stylesheets after the desktop design is stable?
