May 2020 - June 2020
Goals
  • Work with an open-source project workflow
  • Integrate with an existing codebase
  • Design new components to match the current app

Project Overview

For this open-source project, I took the existing Vue site and added new components, as well as updating existing ones. The client had an older existing WordPress site with similar content, but moved to a web app based solution. My job was to complete the process of migrating some old designs over to the new components.

Process

The process was fairly straightforward since setting up Vue web apps is fairly easy. After setting up, it was all about getting familiar with the current codebase. Once I do that, it’s important that I reuse existing components and logic to adhere to the DRY principal. From there, it’s about adding custom logic on top of their existing components. The project went fairly quickly and the changes were all completed on time.

Technologies Used

The site used a Vue.js web app build, which includes Vue router and webpack support. Webpack provides many goodies such as JavaScript linting, hot reloading, and asset compilation.
