You're literally defining media queries, where's the ridiculously simple responsive design part? This is bs, stop clickbaiting on DEV

The title says "Creating Responsive Web Apps"; those responsive apps are created with media queries.

What did you expect?

The title says "A Ridiculously Simple Way For Creating Responsive Web Apps"
Responsive Web Apps in general are only created with media queries, but you mentioned a 'ridiculously simple way' to achieve that instead, but wheres that? You literally just defined media queries, like no sh*t, that's not what anyone's here for.

While media queries are incredibly simple, people think that they as well as responsive apps are something complex.

I introduced a mindset that media queries are nothing more than a bunch of if statements - something most people find simple.

This article won't magically create responsive apps.

You keep saying "if" statements....yet I see no "if" statements in the code.

I understand where GunsyX is coming from but I'll take a different approach than he. The title "A Ridiculously Simple Way For Creating Responsive Web Apps" implies that there is some sort of new WAY that is ridiculously simple, compared to the normal way of creating responsive web apps. A title more like "Creating Responsive Web Apps is ridiculously Simple: here's how" might be a little less misleading. I as well read the article thinking that I was going to read a new way. A ridiculously simple way. But instead just read about the normal way. Which is, yes, ridiculously simple. :-)

Give the guy a break, GunsyX.
Simple applies to the author, not the technology

Your first sentence might have been the springboard to some constructive criticism; but you had to follow it with an insult that produces heat without light. (Reminds me of Iron Mike's popular quote about social media.)

Then focus on the first part? 😂 The first part was the criticism, the second part was the aftermath of me wasting 4 minutes on this article hoping for gaining at least something useful out of it when the title promises something extraordinary. Clearly a clickbait article, called it for what it is. Reminds me of people with unnecessary superiority complex.

That's just the effects of using a clickbait title.

If you're intentionally misleading and tricking people, expect them to be annoyed which in this case is reflected in the comments.

One should be nice to their fellow man, but also can't let people do annoying stuff without some sort of consequences.
