Website Development

If you’re here to check out the development stack, the focus on modular succinct code then you’re in the right place. If you’re looking for less technical, more design, here’s the place to be

We’re focused on using some of the most advanced development techniques using Wordpress, Webpack, React, Gatsby, Headless CMS’ and Docker. We do this to ensure we’re offering the most future proofed, developer friendly sites achievable.

Decoupled CMS (JAMstack)

JAMstack stands for Javascript, API’s and Markup, and as far as Roboto Studio is concerned, it’s the future of agency work, the target is for any mid-level website development due to it’s versatility.

BEM SCSS

We use block element modifier SCSS because it works. It allows for scalable, ultra specific targeting that works in a development environment. We use it because it’s almost universally understood by front end developers, so you don’t have to explain why you used a janky

Our tools

1

Development

We use Gatsby, HUGO & Wordpress for our development needs. We generally ask a user about lifespan and control of their website dependent on what language they want.

2

Deployment

We use Netlify to allow for deployment when committing to a repo. It works beautifully when paired with a static site such as Gatsby or HUGO. We also use Amazons lightsail service for Wordpress websites which allows for deployment.

3

Testing

We use Netlify to serve users A/B tests, view changes to design and development and allow different simultaneous versions of the same site. It’s an ideal solution for testing, making amendments, and when you’re happy - serving it publically

Hosting

With Netlify & Lightsail, we can distribute your site on a CDN (Content delivery network) so your site gets served considerably faster than the competition and reduces strain on the site for scalability.
