Technical Recipes

We handcraft websites and webapps.

18 years of experience in programming and Internet. We expertly hand craft our apps to run well and look great. You don't have to compromise on function for it to look great.

This responsive OPS (One Page Site) is under 70kB to load including graphics and google analytics (excludes font file)! Why start with a framework that's over 200kB? Half the time your mobile internet is too slow for that size. I'm always hearing people say "don't reinvent the wheel" when they are pushing along a big square! We do it properly from the ground up, tailored to be fast and exactly what you need.

Web apps

Web applications that actually work when your internet is slow! Keep it below 100KB + pictures.

Get real function into your site.

Use the internet to centralize your backend. Reduce your costs and open up a flexible lightweight solution for your business needs.

If you need it on a "phone app", we can convert our webapps to phone apps very easily. In most cases, you're better off starting with a web app first and moving to the downloadable phone app second...often you don't need it. Isn't it beter to run your app on all devices and computers and to not have to download anything?

We use a clever system of caching, page loading and lightweight customised scripts to give you the best of all worlds.
