THE CHALLENGE – A home brew
The bar in question
THE METHOD – Hand-crafted
Hand-crafted Bootstrap HTML
Another problem is the fact the website I created is static, making it difficult to update with new content. This was not particularly important for this project as many of the bar’s details will remain the same. But I think the “Our Beers” section for example would benefit from the use of a PHP module as this would allow the user to easily keep the range of beers available up to date without having to delve into the code.
Sweet nectar of the gods
Bootstrap provides a level of control that allows for endless possibilities. I imagine it could be useful for creating design templates in the future. It also makes it easy to keep your code light and organized. This has benefits for page loading times and figuring out what went wrong if problems arise in the future.
THE RESULT – A crafty pint
However, I did succeed in creating a snappy, responsive website. I also learnt a lot about the pros and cons of using Bootstrap to build websites. While it may not be a complete solution, it is a powerful tool to have in my box that will no doubt be useful in the future.
