The challenge: a uniform website created by multiple teams
Funda recently gave its website a new look and feel. With almost 30 million visits and 390 million page views a month Funda is one of the most popular websites in The Netherlands. De Voorhoede was responsible for building a completely responsive front-end. Our challenge was to ensure individual product teams could work seamlessly on the same front-end.
The solution: component based development with the front-end guide
Our front-end guide is a custom made component library.
We always develop and test components in isolation. This way we make sure that subsequent changes will not affect the rest of the website. When a component is delivered but not ready to use, you can implement it at a later stage without any hassle.
A front-end guide provides an overview of all components and pages. Everyone has access, including product owners, designers and back-end developers. Components are carefully documented and combined with an live example usages. This helps with a smooth handover between developers. Another benefit is that the client and stakeholders always have access to the latest version of the front-end. Especially useful for feedback and demos.
