Front End Development
Jyst Creative offer Front End Development to both improve and transform your product.
Our front-end development approach process focuses on mobile-first with progressive enhancement to ensure the products we build work well for mobile, tablet and desktop users.
Adopting the latest front-end frameworks (React.js, Styled Components or TailwindCSS) ensures consistency of code and efficient development working processes. This makes it easier to build adapt a project regardless of team size or team location.
We have deep industry experience understanding and knowledge of CSS fundamentals and web standards that have become the fabric design-code language used across the web. Our vast experience means we know what works and what doesn’t in the real world when it comes to handing CSS effectively.
So many companies and teams get this wrong and pay for it later down the line. All our code is streamlined, performant and well organised.
How to get the ball rolling on a Front End Development Project?
If you have an existing project we will look into the existing code and provide options around building out new features with minimal impact or disruption to existing code.
Every good front-end developer knows you must start with a solid base. This means ensuring all your global and base styles are taken into account before extending out further components. The benefits of this approach means less code needs to be written in the long-term. By using utility class frameworks or component design we avoid the pitfalls of traditional CSS where inheritance and specificity begin to cause headaches as a project grows and instead create a truly scalable code-base on each project.
Taking on Legacy projects
There comes a time when patches and small fixes quick wins end up adding to the bloat of your existing code.
At Jyst our team has the skillsets to deep-dive into the full architecture of your application. By tackling issues from a user and customer perspective first you can break down, and then build up the solution whilst still working within existing technologies.
The secret-sauce for these projects is to look at non-destructive methods for re-designing; simply put, working in a way that won’t totally break the app. Legacy code can pose problems with the cascading nature of CSS.
