    AeroGear services and GateIn

    Matt Wringe Master

      We are adding mobile support to GateIn and we are trying to figure out if AeroGear has any services we can use.


      GateIn is a portal framework with its own UI elements, and but also runs other applications and skins on top. We need to provide services to the portal admin to allow them to determine how to do redirects and mobile skinning.


      The first steps are concentrating on mobile detection and redirection (and we will be moving towards portal skinning and such after).


      Starting of with mobile detection, we have a simple user agent string pattern matching and/or device capability detection (optional, requires a redirect to a page to do the detection so it's not ideal, but gets around some issues with browsers having the same user agent string across various devices).


      Does AeroGear provide any services for things like detecting from the headers if the browser is on a mobile device or not? Or more in-depth browser/device detection?


      We would like to use AeroGear services if available, but I can't really figure out what AeroGear is eventually suppose to be providing services or is suppose to be more educational and example based.
