Over at Jakoury Freelance Design she decided it was time to refresh the existing website with a new design.
Jakoury is an independent freelance designer and art-director based in Diemen, the Netherlands. We have worked on many projects toghether in the past.
After some deliberation to re-use the custom
CMS she’s been running on for the past few years I’ve decided to go ahead and use Bolt this time. This was the first time I have used
Bolt on a project and I am quite satisfied. It’s a relatively young CMS but it’s shouldered by giants (Silex, Twig) and has a really cool ContentType system.
CMS was installed and the
ContentTypes defined it was a matter of hooking up the design, which was sliced to HTML by the Republic of Pete, in
Twig and taking the system for a spin.
The Contact page as always needs a Contact Form but any form is a pain, not so with
Bolt. It turns out, hidden in the Extension directory there’s the Simple Forms extension which makes creating a Form a breeze. It’s powered with the
Symfony Form Factory component which is really flexible.
The Client loves the
Bolt backend interface, it’s easy to use and also accessible from a Mobile device.
