Canoe Financial Website
The purpose of re-doing the Canoe Financial website was to give it a modern look and feed and to update it to the latest web technologies, including french language support and an private advisor login area.View mobile thumbs View desktop thumbs
- Front-end development
- Back-end development
- ExpressionEngine Setup/Integration
One big concern was to simplify the data integration of each mutual fund offering. We were able to achieve these goals by incorporating responsive styling and connecting to and caching an external data feed that provided all of the major data displayed in charts and other areas of the site.
This website has an enormous amount of content and ExpressionEngine was the best choice to allow Canoe staff to manage the entire website with very little difficulty. This website also has multilingual support offering a french version. ExpressionEngines transcribe add-on was a great option for handling this. A private advisor section with registration and login was also built into the website.
I handled all of the development, front-end and back-end as well as the integration with ExpressionEngine. LESS was used as the CSS pre-processor, jQuery was integrated for simplifying dynamic peices, Highcharts was used for all of the charting and the website was written in HTML5.
