A simple, free-to-use Device, OS and Browser detection library

The Whatami library
You are welcome to use our easy-to-use free client-side device detection library, maintained by SkyDancer, our Artificial intelligence solution, in your web projects. Use a simple JavaScript include to get device, OS and browser information available from within your JavaScript code. The information becomes available as an object in your code.

You can use this library to add specific handling for certain handsets or devices, alternatively report back information to your backend regarding your customers device usage.

We do not expect to charge money for usage of the library. Please contact us at info@ethertech.com if you need assistance with integrating the library into your application.
