Why does Deluxe use responsive design?
The answer is simple: due to the increasing usage of handheld devices, it is not acceptable to have a website that does not work at the tablet and mobile level.
We use desktops, laptops, tablets, and phones to access our favorite websites, or to look someone or something up online. The size of each of these devices various dramatically, so web developers can use something called responsive design to create one website that works well on all devices.
Responsive design accommodates user behavior today and anticipates the device delivery innovations that will impact consumer behavior in the future. Consolidating all content into site, responsive design delivers seamless interaction and a flawless user experience device-to-device. We’ll leverage our responsive design expertise and help you engage your customers with fluid design, flexible images and overall simplicity.
Deluxe development team uses the latest version of a markup language HTML 5. This is the fifth revision of the HTML standard since the inception of the World Wide Web. Its core aims are to improve the language with support for the latest multimedia while keeping it easily readable by humans and consistently understood by computers and devices, such as web browsers, parsers and others. HTML5 is intended to subsume not only HTML 4, but also XHTML 1 and DOM Level 2 HTML.
HTML5 focuses on providing the perfect platform for web app development. This is a functionality that did not exist in the previous versions of the markup language, which now includes several new features. Here are what can be offered in HTML5 web development: cross browser compatibility with HTML5 option, enhanced efficiency via HTML5 drag and drop feature which reduces workload and time, effective and creative utilization of HTML5′ built in ability to play audio and video, utilization of HTML5 animation programs to create user engaging websites and apps, usage of semantic tags which are very useful for SEO.
CSS 3 is the latest standard for CSS. CSS3 is completely backwards-compatible with earlier versions of CSS and developers have more options in using different styles.
Also we use SCSS for large projects and can use existing CSS frameworks as Bootstrap, Foundation.
React JS is a library created by Facebook, focused on the development for web UI components and their performance. It uses what they call “Virtual DOM”, updating only parts of the DOM that changed without having to render the whole page or section of the page. This gives them an advantage in performance and rendering times, leaving behind other libraries as AngularJS.
React JS only provides tools for developing web components, but does not provide tools to make Ajax calls, nor events, nor promises, but that is OK, since we would only add the libraries needed.
Backbone.js is intended to structure web applications. It contains models that provide key-value binding and custom events, collections API with enumerable functions, and views with declarative event-handling. This functionality is connected with your existing API via a RESTful JSON interface.
