From MediaWiki Pivot Skin

Pivot... a MediaWiki skin...

...that focuses on mobile first but will pivot to all devices and their viewport sizes easily. It uses three grid sizes, large, medium and small so you control the content and the content doesn't control you!

Pivot is currently at version 2.3.0 which was released on December 11, 2020. It is compatible with MediaWiki 1.35 and later on PHP 7.3 and later. You may download version 2.3.0 now!

It is recommended to users of earlier versions to update.
