Front-end development is the beating heart of Spigot. Take the design of a static website and marry it up to the CMS with pixel perfection. Don’t get me started!
Our Front End Development Expertise
HTML5 is the standard these days and we’re well versed. Well structured markup is the backbone of any website, and the new HTML5 elements help to define the hierarchy of the site. The HTML5 Doctor should know.
While the CSS3 spec has been out and in production for some time now, understanding progressive enhancement is still a pressing need for many projects. Make sure you don’t leave your predecessors behind. What ever that may mean.
The once derided pop-up maker has become the third leg of the three legged web stool. JS has advanced to become everything from a simple animation and interactivity tool, to building out entire user interfaces. Oh how far you’ve come old friend.
We’d reiterate here that developing a responsive site is a given these days, but what fun would that be. We’ve been doing responsive since before Ethan Marcotte coined the term. Okay not really but we were close. Sortof.
Modern Development Tools
We love integrating the latest and greatest tools into our workflow. Gulp, Sass, Git – these tools help us to stay efficient and allow for work to be shared easily and efficiently collaborated.
We normally work with WordPress and can easily integrate your design into a custom WP template. It’s what we do best. If you’re using another standard CMS or a custom application, we can also integrate your design using modern coding and markup standards.
While we do provide front-end integration to other CMS’s, WordPress is what we know and love. There are a lot of WordPress haters out there, and to all of them we say: Send your WordPress clients to us, we love WordPress! Love it!
