Startarium

We refactored a heavy react app to a modern stack with focus on SEO, speed, easy maintenance and good developer experience. We built a custom gatsby data plugin to get data from the rest api and seamless connection to the intranet behind it.

Stack

  • Netlify
  • Rest 2 GraphQL

SEO Optimised

Scores 100 points on google lighthouse every time. The only limitations here are now related to the effort put into creating and optimising the content. Due to server side rendering (SSR), search engine crawling and social media sharing is as good as it can be. A few lines of code automatise the rest of the work.

Single page application

Instant transitions from one page to another. No reloads. Website dynamically rewrites the content in the current page rather than loading entire new pages from a server. Visitors experience little to no interruption between successive pages, making the website behave more like a desktop application.

Projects

Measuring project success is hard to do. Finding relevant indicators for each one is even harder. At the beginning of each project I set KPIs relating to the challenges tackled, the overall client goals and my personal objectives as a developer.
