About Mettrr

Mettrr Technologies design and build websites for small business owners across the world. 

Background

I was approached to work with Mettrr's London team in order to build an enterprise standard web solution using Drupal 8 - A choice that was made when looking at the best CMS to handle translation into multiple languages. I worked both remotely and in-house to both develop and build the site, as well as providing Drupal training.

The Outcome

I used Bootstrap 4 and heavily utilised the Paragraphs module which allowed me to create re-usable layouts in quick time, this allowed Mettrr's content creators to create dynamic pages adding various layouts onto a page and ordering them as they wish. I used various techniques in order to make sure the site loaded fast such as configuring Drupal's AdvAgg module for aggressive caching and aggregation of assets, and image compression using Drupal's Image Optimise API module in conjunction with OptiPNG and JpegTran. I created a custom module which could centrally store their prices for each translation and then using preprocessors and the Twig templating engine rendered these prices into various price point layouts across the site.
