USMarkets.nl to Craft CMS
By the end of February 2019, we launched USMarkets.nl on Craft CMS 3.
The new site has a new fresh and responsive design.
One of the challenges we encounteredwas migrating the previous content and user base.
We also totally revised the 'beursbox' and created a web socket powered component in React.js.
The beursbox has chat functionality, and is one of the important communication channels to maintain the conversation with paying customers.
Migration of users and content
In order the migratie the large content archive (since 2003) and user base, we wrote our own migration scripts.
API Powered - a lot of time and work was saved
Since the previous 'new website', we began to power important business processes with an api.
This saved a lot of work when we created this site, since we did not have to rewrite all the code!
Images on AWS
Once busy, we decided to store images in the cloud with AWS. We now have more reliable storage, and our backups decrease significantly in size..
