How to change webhelp homepage based on screen size

Hi,
I am looking to implement something like you have on https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/18.0/ug-editor/ where the editor image and name disappears when the screen size reduced to phone size.
Can you advise how much customisation was required to achieve this?
Thanks in advance,

Re: How long should WebHelp transform take?

Hi Radu,
When compared to yours I see that I have used many more ditamaps than you; I have 134 ditamaps and 1619 dita files.
Do you know if having a lot of ditamaps effects memory usage?

Re: How long should WebHelp transform take?

Because I am using conrefs to render the various system names that I am documenting, there are over 1000 content references pointing to a single file while defines all my reusable system names.
Would 1015 conrefs in a project with 6000 dita files cause memory issues?
