The right tools for the job
A common concern when looking to outsource your web development is knowing that the work done can be supported, not just by ourselves but also by your team.
We use a variety of tools to build websites. In many cases, this may change based on the project. We don’t use plugins for every simple task. We build bespoke functionality and only use plugins when it’s really necessary
Website A has a highly technical CMS requirement. It is likely we will ‘fully develop’ this website without the use of page builders or similar plugins.
Website B is a simple brochure site and the client has a limited budget. It is likely in this instance we will use our page builder of choice: Elementor Pro.
We advise our agency partners on the best course of action and agree the method of development prior to any work commencing.
What's in our tech stack?
Below, you can see the tools we have in our toolbox. Our promise is to never overburden a website with plugins when simple code will suffice.
WordPress is a free and open source content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL. It is the most widely used CMS software in the world, and as of June 2021, it powers more than 40% of the top 10 million websites and has an estimated 64% market share of all websites built using a CMS.
Advanced Custom Fields Pro
Advanced Custom Fields Pro is a plugin that allows us to create post types to suit your client’s website architecture. From portfolios to location pages, ACF allows us to fully customise the website to allow simple administration and reduce page creation.
Similar to Advanced Custom Fields, Jet Engine is our go-to choice when creating Elementor based websites as it allows us to create rich listing grids and complex repeater blocks.
With over 5+ million active installations, Woocommerce is the defacto e-commerce platform for WordPress. We consider ourselves to be Woocommerce experts having written thousands of lines of custom code to bend and manipulate this plugin to do whatever our clients require.
