The Bow Tie Duck : Online Luxury Food Delivery

Recommended Posts

Everything looks great! The site and the food :)

You're probably not the one to blame, but those facebook buttons —especially the one in the nav— kill some of the charm...

@diogo : I'm the one to blame ;) I'm experimenting different conversion models because the Philippines market is quite a difficult one for this segment. Thanks for your appreciation!

@Joss : A review would be wonderful! For food writing, why not ;) We should discuss about it!

Love the feel of everything. Well, almost everything: support dialog boxes bother me, but that's more a me thing than anything else. And where's the balut on the menu? J/K  :) Good job on the site, when I vacate next January, I'll order something and give you some feedback. Will the deliveries make it out to Olongapo?

@Joss : Thank you! it's awesome. you're quite a writer! Btw we are planning to get some Irish oysters ;)

@fmgujju : Everything is PW. I think that PW is the only CMS that would allow me to do such a website in 5 days ;)

Thanks, though to be fair, writing is part of my job, so it is probably cheating!

Hi totoff,

I guess it's not really a secret. I used to run a webagency and I'm used to crazy deadlines.

So, no i was not working 24/24 at all. I dont know if this method would work for everybody, but here is how I work :

- Give yourself a deadline

- Spend 1/8 of the time allocated to plan ahead the project, the data structure, the features.

- Use tools, libraries, frameworks you know by heart, and learn one new tool ( no more no less ) at each project. Small tool for a small project, bigger tool for bigger project.

- If you run into a bug, give yourself 10min and/or 5 tries max to find the reason of the bug (the reason, not the solution). If not found, don't get stuck, wait the next day.

- Don't optimize before going to prod. Wait 24h after going to prod to see bottlenecks, then add one day to fix performance issues ( same thing : only tools you know, learn one new every time )

- Use a good css/js library / framework.

- Rely carefully on third party plugins : try to stay the master of your markup.

- Work with repeatable design so your css will be repeatable and modularized.

- Be the one who design the site : so you can balance difficulty

- To do list, to do list. Plan the next day at the end of the day.

- If you have the budget, use QA services ( like http://crowdsourcedtesting.com/ )

- Know the market you're coding for. Don't kill yourself for under represented browsers.

- Use a laptop, so you can code anywhere ( when you have an idea, etc... ).

- Practice, practice, practice

Having been a creative for around 35 years, I have always worked on the two stage process.

1. Think of an idea

2. Get on with it.

If I do get stuck it is on number one as delaying on number two would get me fired.

One trick for not getting stuck on number one - when your client briefs you down the phone tell them immediately what your first thoughts are to get a reaction. 9/10 they will like your gut reaction and the one time they don't you have at least eliminated one route.

      Hello Fellows,

      I have a wonderful webshop, using PL and Padopt, a module developed by Julien Vaubourg and highlighted in ProcessWire Newsletter. Here is our shop: cheval-ami.fr
      I am looking for a new developer, helping me to keep the shop smooth and up to date.
      We would like to improve automated invoicing and worldwide shipping, getting DHL integrated and give people the possibility to create their personal accounts and be the nicest shop in the equine industry. We are still a young company, working all in german, english and french. We are very interested in a long time, kind and friendly relationship without any stress, but reliable reactivity in case of urgency. 
      We are based in Hamburg and near Paris and would prefere to work with somebody who is available to catch up around a table, at least sometimes.
      Contact: mail@cheval-ami.fr or +33 626 22 1000 or +49 170 20 28 215
      Thank you, Have a beautiful day,
      Jeannette

      Hi everyone,
      a year ago we had put online a first version of our website, which didn't satisfy me much and had several bugs. This year I started working on a complete restyling, both in terms of functionality and graphic. I am very happy with the result obtained. Finally, last week we put this version online that I am proud to show you!
      Site EU: https://www.playwood.it/
      Site USA: https://www.us.playwood.it/
      It is an eCommerce for a small StartUp, the PlayWood, based in Reggio Emilia, Italy.
      The site is multilingual, has two areas of purchase and has two levels of registration. Redirectory based on the source IP for the USA customer and preferred language in the browser for the others countries. It has systems for use registration and sending emails dependent on specific actions, like: registration, purchase, request for quotes, information request, etc. Through the API the site communicates with external platforms such as the management software, Mailchimp and other systems to support marketing and company operations. 
      The site is constantly evolving, in the future we intend to add new features.
      The site was created with these modules:
      Padloper  Login/register Media Library ProCache PayPal Checkout Subscribe to Mailchimp Tracy Debugger Cookie Management Banner Continent and country names ImagePicker Field Map Marker External libraries:
      Spectre, scss framework Swiper slideshow verlok/lazyload fancybox
      Creating this site with ProcessWire represented a moment of strong professional growth. When I started I had little knowledge of some types of language, but Processwire and its APIs give me the ability to easily build pages, manipulate data and integrate any external library easily. Thus, I was able to deepen my knowledge more and more. So I wanted to thank the creators of the cms, who keeps it and who implements it, obviously all the people in the forum for the help they gave me, was very important.
      Thank you!

      Not new, but a website I've worked on for a year or so in continous development.
      http://supercarownerscircle.com/
      I originally inherited the site from another web design company - upgraded PW and over the year added ecommerce using the Stripe module and a custom integration, revamped the frontend and added lots of new templates.
      Also did some frontend work on the shopify shop.

      Hello
      I need to make a small, easy Webshop for a friend. He is selling 4 music albums.
      What would be the best way to go?
      Is there a sensible solution for a webshop within processwire? 
      Thanks

      Hi folks,
      I have a marketplace site built on PW which I'd like to tie to a subscription payment system for those selling. The user accounts currently use specific PW user accounts. I'm looking closely at PayWhirl to manage payments and subscriptions as it looks ideal for subscriptions. Their API seems to work well too from initial testing.
      I wondered if anyone else in this super forum had used PayWhirl and had any advice or tips & tricks?
      Thanks.
