Views was conceived, designed, and constructed by designer and developer Philip Kuperberg and Brian Aloisio.
Views is a powerful series of event management and web page building applications that extends the WordPress CMS. It’s a powerful tool designed to leverage institutional knowledge and automate repeatable design patterns—freeing editorial staff, marketers, designers, and developers to focus on creating rather than repeating. By taking a content first modular approach to building web pages, Views flips the 80/20 rule on it’s head.
How did we do it?
We’ve created a series of extendable modules, data specific content types, and designed a user interface that allows teams of all skill sets to visually manipulate data and build web pages. All of the code blocks are modular, responsive (type too), and use web standards to drastically reduce human error and increase SEO. Each module can be visually represented on a web page using any number of a series of “views”, blocks of HTML and CSS code. Each “view” has a set of options allowing users to customize the experience and control which data sets display on the website. Time to market is wicked fast and because we’ve leveraged the WordPress CMS, going live simply means hitting the “Publish” button. It’s even possible to create multi-page custom micro site experiences within a branded content ecosystem to leverage the power of a brand’s content and SEO all within one dashboard. No additional WordPress themes required.
CODE CONTENT DESIGN PUBLISH
The Views platform consists of several mini applications using ReactJS to hook into the WordPress dashboard and database. We’ve built tools for constructing buttons, web pages, menus, event pricing, event information, agendas, and profiles of people and companies associated with a brand.
