Launch of the new Revolana website

News - 08/04/2018

After several months of development we are pleased to present the new Revolana website. It has been completely rewritten by ourselves. It corresponds exactly to what we wanted to achieve. It offers us a well-suited platform to explain and show our work.

More content

The previous Revolana site was primarily an online store. The new site is content-oriented: manufacturing, products, Serbia. We want to share with you our passion and our work. We also have many projects for which this content platform will be essential. So expect to see more and more items in the coming months.

A better presented shop

The shop is of course still here and will be enriched with novelties in the coming months. We have new photos and a more attractive presentation.

Technical side

For those who are interested here are some more technical elements.

The development platform

The site is based on the WordPress platform with WooCommerce for the shop part. We chose the plugin Timber to write all templates with Twig. The combination WordPress + Timber makes a very interesting and productive development platform for us coming from a CMS like MODx. Thanks to the amazing Bootstrap 4 library, we were able to develop our own Responsive WordPress theme based on Twig templates.

Image management

The images are an essential part of the website. We have chosen to entrust this management to Thumbor. We produce images in one high-resolution version and Thumbor automatically produces, on demand, all smaller versions. This allows us to easily manage the multitude of screen sizes and resolutions.

Deployment

On the server side, we provide our own deployment on a high performance cloud server at Infomaniak.

So we have total control of the entire site which is unusual for a small company like ours.
