Building multifunctional websites and web applications is hardly an easy task. We support ourselves in this process with various programming languages and tools.

We are the largest and best-known company dealing with creating and supporting Drupal-based websites in Poland. Our areas of expertise also include Symfony, PHP, ReactJS and front-end development. In our endeavours, we also use a variety of other software solutions, such as PHPStorm, Jenkins and Docker.

We are happy to share our experiences, describing the process of work on building and developing websites and applications at Droptica. Thanks to SCRUM and the right tools such as Slack and Jira, we ensure seamless communication between the team and the client. We systematically improve or change the software we use in order to automate repetitive actions and speed up the development work.

You can learn more about the ins and outs of our work thanks to our extensive blog articles, or you can find out what benefits we can offer you thanks to our Case Studies.

You can find many comparisons between popular CMS systems on the internet. Whenever Drupal is mentioned in them, it is always described with words like: safe, open, regularly updated. Today I'm going to explain why it has such an opinion (hint: it is not only because we are a Drupal agency). I will also present evidence that the level of security claimed by the Drupal community is not just empty words. Here are five reasons behind the Drupal's security: 1.

Light backgrounds for websites are a ubiquitous trend, as, according to a lot of research, people find it more attractive and it comes with better readability. It’s hard to disagree, so… Are there any advantages of using a dark background on a website? In general, white website design appeal to a broader audience, as well as the HTML and CSS come with white background as a default. This is why many developers stick to it, without even thinking of making any changes.

At Droptica, we designed and implemented a new design of an online store for mobile devices for one of the oldest publishers in Poland. We used Drupal 7 Commerce and did some search engine optimisation. The results? Increased sales! Publishing house Three years ago we started cooperating with Wydawnictwo WAM Publishing House, one of the oldest Polish Catholic publishers, providing them with our Drupal development services.

Droopler 1.4 is now available and you can download it right now! Personally, I’ve been testing the 1.4-rc version on Droptica’s websites for a number of weeks and I can honestly say that the new version is a great improvement in terms of editing work. Finally, creating corporate websites in Drupal is a simple and pleasant affair. Custom drupal development can be now left for un-typical web-apps only. Easier paragraph editing The main content type in Droopler is paragraph-based.

Soon, we will be celebrating the first anniversary of the day Droopler – our open Drupal distribution for corporate websites – was released. It is a perfect time for some summaries and plans for the future. In this article, I’m going to show you how Droopler works and what awaits its users in the upcoming release. Why Droopler? Where did the idea of creating a new distribution come from?

Front-end technologies are a field of the software development industry which constantly experiences almost exponential growth. More and more often, when starting new projects, developers decide to give up pure JavaScript and jQuery and replace them with modern frameworks for building application client layer. Then, they face a dilemma – which one to use? Usually, there are three that are taken into account: Vue, React and Angular.

Page loading speed is one of these factors that attract more visitors. According to Google’s research, nine seconds difference in the page load speed can increase the bounce rate by 123 percent. As part of our drupal development services offer, we quite often improve page load times for our clients. In this post we will discuss some of methods of page speed optimistaion. Drupal performance optimization can be a complicated process.

The entry barrier in e-commerce is relatively low, which is confirmed by the fact that there are over 800,000 e-commerce websites in Europe alone. However, entering the industry comes with great competition. So, what are the unique e-commerce challenges?  Newbie online merchants need to tackle not only small players but also e-commerce giants like Amazon or Alibaba.
