The job

My client, DK Hostmaster, wanted my help with building a front-end application that would show Denmark's role in the history of the internet. The story should be told through text and graphics while walking through each year in the timeline.

The site was required to deliver great performance on everything from the smallest mobile devices to large desktop devices.

What I did

We chose to write it in Vue.js, to keep the technology within the same stack as my client's other projects. To leverage static rendering for SEO purposes, we agreed to use Nuxt.js around Vue.js.

The site is build with reusable components written with Vue.js and SASS as a preprocessor. To keep it simple, the structure and ontent of the website is managed inside the project repository, using simple JSON files. Upon building the project, we feed Nuxt.js with a list of pages to statically generate, wherein this stage we load those JSON files to feed the generated site with content.

The site is optimized with performance in mind for both mobile and desktop users. The site scores a solid 100 out of 100 on Google PageSpeed Insights.
