Absolute vs relative and other interface designing questions


I’m searching for a guide to building interfaces with appgyver. The documentation is very light on this front, and i’m struggling with even basic concepts - eg absolute vs relative position.

With regard to ‘relative’, what i’m not clear about is ‘relative’ to what?

My hope was that it was relative to its current container - but that appears not to be the case, so what I need is a simple:

“how to put interface elements where you want them, while making interface elements that scale”


Any help on that front would be most appreciated.


Hi Oli, we currently don’t have a Composer-specific guide to layouting. However, the principles are based on CSS, so going through CSS tutorials can help you understand the terminology and concepts used. You can learn about positioning (and CSS in general) for example here.
