To provide a means of consuming content from their thick web application easily from mobile devices, we created a lightweight Django-based, mobile device-oriented web application that implements the customer’s RESTful API. It provides an essential subset of on-the-go tools for keeping in touch with customers and colleagues using the platform regardless of device vendor, and can be used on laptop and desktop computers in low bandwidth situations as well.

While JavaScript is used to enhance the user experience, it is completely functional without—supporting older mobile devices and the ability to disable JavaScript support to preserve further bandwidth.
