Meowbify Mobile Developer Experiment: a peek behind the scenes of Mobify.js (with cats)
A skunkworks project is one typically developed by a small and loosely structured group of people who research and develop a project primarily for the sake of radical innovation.
We're pleased to introduce a mobile developer experiment we've been playing with called Meowbify.
Meowbify uses the Mobify Platform and moxie to solve the not-enough-cats-on-your-favorite-website problem.

Go to Meowbify and follow this process:
- Enter the URL of any website
- Cats get added
Here are a few Meowbify favorites as examples:
Why We Built Meowbify
Meowbify is an experiment to show how the Mobify Platform can give developers full control over web pages. In this case, to insert cats.
In other cases, the Mobify Platform is used to rearrange assets, add new resources, replaces elements with other elements targeted to a specific platform like mobile smartphones. Anything a developer can imagine.
This control is especially handy for adapting an existing website for mobile and tablet devices like iPads.
Developers are already using the Mobify Platform to build
And you can too – try Mobify for free.
Update: Google Machine Learns about Cats Too
In a fun bit of happenstance, Google scientists have taught networked computers to recognize cats.
They've taken the opposite approach from Meowbify. Where Meowbify injects cats into everything, Google takes everything and extracts cats.
Either way, this is superb because Meowbify can now add cats to any web page to help Google with their cat-finding sample size.
