An increase in web traffic from mobile devices in Europe prompted an update of CinqueTerre-travel.com.
Nevvix built a responsive website using:
The client focuses on writing content; the framework does the technical rendering.
CinqueTerre-travel.com is built with the Nevvix PHP website framework to render web pages in a path structure that the client can understand.
Paths on the server are mirroring the paths in a directory hierarchy on her local computer.
The photos on CinqueTerre-travel.com are taken by the client herself. Nevvix needed to emphasize all her beautiful photos in a gallery that is viewable even on a smartphone.
Fotorama provides a gallery that is responsive for different viewports. The images can be swiped on a mobile device or tablet. The full-screen mode on any device makes these amazing photos stand out.
Instead of serving all the photos from the web host provider, the photos are hosted on Flickr. We avoid duplication of images on the web server.
Nevvix and the client needed the share files in an environment separate from the production web server. Using FTP to upload and download files to a web server to synchronize local directories was too time-consuming. We were making backups of the files we were uploading just in case we had to rollback.
Version control became very important for incremental changes to shared files and directories — it removed the local backups. But we were now working in a share environment with Cloud9. We didn't want to FTP from Cloud9 to Dreamhost.
The Nevvix PHP website framework has a form module that customizes a web form quickly, integrating Bootstrap CSS styles.
The form is secure, validates data entry, displays errors to the user when validation fails, and emails out the posted result to the client.
