Build a mobile template with Handlebars

'Mobile': such an interesting and all-encompassing word. It seems these days, it is either the primary topic of conversation amongst web designers and developers, or is at the very least tangentially related. Just as the buzz words "HTML5" and "Ajax" have taken off, mobile usage has continued to gain traction. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the same approach taken to build the front-end of an Ajax driven site for a desktop browser can also be applied to embedded HTML5 apps that can run on mobile devices.

This is the topic of my talk at the Big Design Conference in Dallas, TX — Use Web Skills to Build Mobile Apps. Coincidentally (or conveniently, for me) it is also what I am going to cover in this article: How to use Handlebars.js to make a lightweight HTML5 "app" that can consume the Dribbble API. Sound good? Okay then, let's get to it.
