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.

Training Realm offers unique fitness training routines. They asked us for an application for their users. Till now, training routines were posted as static pages and users had to calculate training days and remember results by themselves. The aim of the app was to make it easy for everyone to plan training days and progress automatically without having to remember about routines yourself. Requirements gathering We started the project with requirements gathering phase.

Do you really believe that showcasing your company on Facebook is enough for your company to get noticed in the internet? Before you answer, check the advantages of having your own website!  “Do I really need a website for my company?” This is a question that many entrepreneurs need to answer. Perhaps hearing such a question should make us feel offended, but in the depths of our souls, we understand this dilemma. After all, it only takes a few clicks to appear on the Internet.

Even an experienced designer can meet some common problems when creating a website, as there are many challenges to overcome. For instance, when it comes to displaying the website properly across various devices. Are there any effective ways to make things easier?  The number of devices people use nowadays to browse the internet is a nightmare for web developers and designers. That’s why, before you decide to publish your site, you need to test its responsiveness first.

It’s been two years since the première of Drupal 8. We already got used to the differences between versions 7 and 8, and a lot of websites were created based on D8. Many Drupal 7-based websites are applications that use Drupal Commerce – an e-commerce module for Drupal. Many of the applications were set-up with the Commerce Kickstart distribution, which was based on this add-on. What’s the way to do it with D8?

Sometimes I find questions like the following one on Internet forums: “I want to build a website. Should I go with a standard CMS (such as Drupal), or develop a proprietary CMS?” I've been working with a large, custom CMS that was developed for quite a while, as well as in Drupal and I wanted to share my insights. Reinventing the wheel The first thing I noticed was the difference in the amount of time and effort spent on rewriting standard solutions.

What to do with an old, outdated website that you would like to keep online? The perfect solution is to archive it to pure HTML code. We will demonstrate it on the example of a drupalcamp.pl website created in Droopler, based on Drupal. Why archive pages at all? Sometimes websites have their expiration date. It may result from the life cycle of the technology used to build it or simply because the website was created for an event or some special occasion.

At our Drupal agency we have always wanted to solve the problem of time-consuming creation of Drupal 8-based small pages from scratch. Finally, we have been able to achieve satisfactory results with Droopler. Version 1.3 is even better. Why did we make Droopler? We regularly make websites for our needs (for example for marketing campaigns or events like DrupalCamp Poland) as well as for our clients.
