Expertice

Drupal

For a period, bitwise was just specializing in Drupal. We have widened our scope, but of course not lost our expertice…

We offer:

  • Installing Drupal with a basic set of modules and configurations thereof
  • Creating a Drupal template from either HTML or a graphical layout
  • Discovering and setting up various modules needed for the solution
  • Setup is typically done on a development server and migrated when all is approved
  • Module development

Performance

No one loves a slow website. Neither do Google (and their ranking algorithm). Luckily there are many low hanging fruits and in many cases performance can be drastically improved with just a couple of hours of effort

Here are some techniques that we use:

  • Examine the waterfall chart in order to spot bottlenecks
  • Move static ressources such as images, CSS and javascript to CDN (also in Wordpress and Drupal)
  • Concatenate CSS and javascript (also in Wordpress and Drupal)
  • Order scripts and styles for best performance (also in Wordpress and Drupal)
  • Defer javascript that can be deferred
  • Use picoquery instead of jQuery whenever possible. picoQuery is actually developed by us.
  • For smaller websites, migration to a static website generator is a possibility. This website is build with Hugo.
  • Move entire static sites to CDN
  • Use SVG’s and SVG-tricks for icons
  • Use webp images on clients that supports it
  • Prefer pure CSS to script when possible. For example, the responsive menu on this site is pure CSS.
