rfp-robotRFP ROBOT: Website Request for Proposal Generator

The time has come for a new website (or website redesign), which means you need to write a website request for proposal or web RFP. A Google search produces a few examples, but they vary wildly and don’t seem to speak really to your goals for developing or redesigning a new website. You need to write a website RFP that will clearly articulate your needs and generate responses from the best website designers and developers out there. But how?

Have no fear, RFP Robot is here. He will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you work through the details of your project and create a PDF formatted website design RFP that will provide the information vendors need to write an accurate bid. RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.


Visual Email Builder Apps

I bet y’all know that apps like Campaign Monitor and MailChimp have visual email builders built right into them. You drag and drop different types of content right into a layout. You edit text right within the email. It’s nice. It’s a lot nicer than editing the quagmire of HTML underneath, anyway! But not everybody needs all the rest of the features that those apps bring, like list management and the actual sending of the email. Perhaps you have an app that already handles that kind of thing. You just need to design some emails, get the final HTML, and use it in your own app. When I was looking around at email tooling, I was surprised there were a good number of apps that help just with the visual email building. Very cool. Toptol BEE free EDMdesigner RED (Responsive Email Designer) Taxi for Email I haven’t used any of…

Oxygen – The WordPress Visual Site Builder for Real Designers?

WordPress page builders are generally shunned by those who know how to code. They are generally bloated and slow. And you are offered very limited customization options. But what if there was a visual site builder meant for advanced, professional website designers? It turns out there is! It’s called Oxygen, and it’s quickly becoming the tool of choice for WordPress web designers. Notice that with Oxygen, you design your entire site – content, headers, footers, menus, etc. It totally replaces your WordPress theme. All pages are constructed from fundamental HTML elements – section, div, h1…6, p, span, a, img, and a few more. Then, you visually edit CSS properties to get everything looking the way you want. So unlike a typical page builder, you can design anything. It’s like hand-coding, but visually. Think Webflow, but for WordPress. To integrate with WordPress and design layouts for posts, custom post types, archives,…

Using the Paint Timing API

It’s a great time to be a web performance aficionado, and the arrival of the Paint Timing API in Chrome 60 is proof positive of that fact. The Paint Timing API is yet another addition to the burgeoning Performance API, but instead of capturing page and resource timings, this new and experimental API allows you to capture metrics on when a page begins painting. If you haven’t experimented with any of the various performance APIs, it may help if you brush up a bit on them, as the syntax of this API has much in common with those APIs (particularly the Resource Timing API). That said, you can read on and get something out of this article even if you don’t. Before we dive in, however, let’s talk about painting and the specific timings this API collects. Why do we need an API for measuring paint times? If you’re reading…

Decoupled Drupal Technologies and Techniques

We’ve got a new installment in the decoupled Drupal project we’re working on with Elevated Third and Hoorooh. The project we’re documenting was one we worked on for Powdr Resorts, one of the largest ski operators in North America. The first installment in the series was A Deep Dive into a Decoupled Drupal 8 Project. Part two offered a radical change of altitude, from Andy Mead, Drupal Developer at Elevated Third: Decoupled Drupal: A 10,000-foot View. And now part 3 is live: Decoupled Drupal Technologies and Techniques In this episode, senior Drupal developer Joe Flores describes a common situation: a company (Powdr) that has many, slightly different sites. The solution he describes is up-to-the-minute: using Drupal multisite, Paragraphs, JSON REST API, and other related tools. Check it out for insights from the cutting edge of web development.

How Artificial Intelligence is Changing Web Development

What do you think of when you think Artificial Intelligence? Maybe you think of IBM’s Watson and how it won at Jeopardy a few years back. Maybe you remember hearing recently that Google’s DeepMind beat someone at a really challenging game called Go. Maybe that makes you think of Google’s self-driving cars. Regardless of exactly what you associate with AI, it is serious business. Source: https://www.phase2technology.com/feed/

A Poll About Pattern Libraries and Hiring

I was asked (by this fella on Twitter) a question about design patterns. It has an interesting twist though, related to hiring, which I hope makes for a good poll. Note: There is a poll embedded within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post’s poll. I’ll let this run for a week or two. Then (probably) instead of writing a new post with the results, I’ll update this one with the results. Feel free to comment with the reasoning for your vote.

(An Interview About) imgix Page Weight

Imgix has been a long-time display ad sponsor here on CSS-Tricks. This post is not technically sponsored, I just noticed that they released a tool for analyzing image performance at any given URL that is pretty interesting. We know web performance is a big deal. We know that images are perhaps the largest offender in ballooning page weights across the web. We know we have tools for looking at page performance as a whole. It seems fairly new to me to have tools for specifically analyzing and demonstrating how we could have done better with images specifically. That’s what this Page Weight tool is. Clearly this is a marketing tool for them. You put in a URL, and it tells you how you could have done better, and specifically how imgix can help do that. I’m generally a fan of that. Tools with businesses behind them have the resources and…

Designers Tooling Around: Figma

There are already several articles out there explaining Figma and its wide array of features. So I won’t spend too much time explaining what it is, except to say it’s an interface design tool similar to Sketch or, to a lesser extent, Photoshop. But there’s something special that sets it apart. It’s based in the browser and allows for real-time collaboration. For real.  We’ve been using Figma more and more over the past several months and I wanted to give a brief breakdown of how we’ve been using it at Viget and what we love about it. Remote Whiteboarding With teams often spread across three offices, we’ve tried everything to make brainstorming, sketching, and whiteboarding without being together in person feel natural and efficient. Thanks to Hangouts, we have talking and seeing each other down. But drawing and writing together has been harder. Working together in a Google Drawing file…

From buytaert.net to dri.es

I recently was able to obtain the domain name dri.es so I decided to make the switch from buytaert.net to dri.es. I made the switch because my first name is a lot easier to remember and pronounce than my last name. It’s bittersweet because I’ve been blogging on buytaert.net for almost 12 years now. The plan is to stick with dri.es for the rest of the blog’s life so it’s worth the change. Old links to buytaert.net will automatically be redirected, but if you can, please update your RSS feeds and other links you might have to my website. Source: Dries Buytaert www.buytaert.net
