New Onyx Jaguar Website
2014-01-31 1:05 AM
Redid the Onyx Jaguar website in anticipation for the release of some games. Onyx Jaguar is the group of artists/developers I developed NekoRush and Cult Retribution with. Hopefully it will have a nice history of artists collaborating on varied projects.
The previous version was visually unappealing. Not saying this one is beautiful but it’s definitely an improvement over the last one.
I did all the visual stuff in Brackets.io and it was amazing. Suddenly making webpages is so fun when you can code in one screen and see realtime feedback in the other.
My css coding in particular must have sped up 10x. Not only that but with the instant feedback I got a better understanding of some of the layout modifiers like float and display.
In order to save time the news feed is the website reading the Onyx Jaguar tumblr account and transforming it for the website. The about page is Presskit.io . Both of those things really cut down my dev time. I’d estimate it at 8-10 hours including learning Brackets.
Presskit + Tumblr + Brackets + PHP = Interesting and fun solution
