New Livingstone Surfaces

New Livingstone Surfaces


We had a task to redesign the existing website (site catalog) and also to add the possibility to order product samples and literature. It was necessary to ensure cross-browser compatibility in the following browsers: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer 8+ and scalability of the project on mobile devices and tablets.


Since the site needed the maximum modularity, versatility, and high-speed operation, we have decided to use more modern PHP framework, that meets all these requirements - Yii. To implement a user interface component we selected JavaScript library JQuery and CSS framework Twitter Bootstrap, which allowed implementation of the adaptive interface for mobile and tablet versions of the site with a fast response to user actions. As the main data store was chosen MySQL database. To realize a fast search for products and categories we used Google Search API.


Ajax, AWS SQS, AWS CloudFront, AWS SES, Codeigniter, CSS, Git, Google Maps, Google Tag Manager, Google PageSpeed, Graphic Design, ImageMagick, JavaScript, jQuery, jQuery UI, Mailchimp API, Minify, NivoSlider, PHP, Prototype JS, REST API, Smarty, SVN, TinyPNG API


 - Designer – development of the website design;

 - Project manager– communication with the customer, distribution and control of tasks implementation;

 - 2 PHP programmers – development of the server side of the system;

 - Frontend programmer – UI (HTML5+CSS) development, creating JavaScript code;

 - Tester – functional and cross-browser compatibility testing.


After all details were discussed with the customer, we made an evaluation of the project and work plan. The project was divided into several independent parts, each of which has been divided into functional components. As a result, the project was estimated in 2 calendar months of development. Thanks to competent management the development of different parts of the system was conducted in parallel, which allowed completing the project in time.
