We build websites everyday all day. Like many of you out there we primarily use WordPress. However we’ve been reviewing simpler CMS’ on the market recently for our smaller projects where the use of a MySQL database is neither necessary nor desirable.
Our search and feature review of several options on the market has led us to try Grav. Whilst there are a number of new and interesting flat file CMS on the market it was Grav that garnered our attention.
Grav is actively developed, is opensource and has an impressive amount of features and functionality built in from the outset – take a look and see what you think!
Development Workflow Refinement
We’ve recently been looking at ways to improve our workflow across team members when developing WordPress websites.
The solution we favour makes use of a Vagrant VM (VVV) to standardise the dev platform across all team members. In addition we are making use of Twig templating and the Timber theme combined with Foundation 6.
We will be posting more details as we refine the specifics.

Incase you haven’t heard, some rather important news came out of the googleplex late last month. Google have just applied a major update to their search engine algorithms (the last was 2 years ago) whereby websites that are not designed for mobile will be penalised, and those that are designed for mobile will be promoted.
Obviously with google attracting 85% of the search market in the UK, this is very big news for any companies with older websites that have yet to be given a responsive mobile re-design.
