To give the client a head-start on the content creation process. I started work on the website. The CMS was a heavily customised version of WordPress. In addition, the Advanced Custom Fields Pro plugin enabled me to develop a modular backend, based around reusable content modules rather than pages.
I developed the front end using Bootstrap 3, and hand-coded app.scss and app.js components.
My development environment included Visual Studio Code, Codekit, Tower, MAMP, iTerm and Github. I developed on localhost and then mapped a GIT development branch to my staging server and master branch to the live server.
