New Website for Strip

2010-05-25 20:00:00 -0400


We’ve put a little bit of extra elbow grease into our web presence over the last couple of weeks, and as part of that effort, we launched a new website just for Strip last night: getstrip.com.

That gorgeous design is the work of Mr. Johnny Bilotta.

We expect this will serve customers of Strip quite a lot better than the old sub-page on zetetic.net, it makes it a lot easier to find information about the program itself, and there’s a ton of documentation on there. We’ve redirected/rewritten all old links to the new site, let us know if you see any broken ones. And let us know what you think!

Thanks to Johnny, Bret Morgan of DBL Systems who helped me hack out all the wiring, and the rest of the Zetetic Team (Don Quander, Steve Kradel, SJ-Lo) for doing such a great job and providing great feedback.

One of the nifty things about this site is that we decided to forgo any kind of webapp or content management system, and instead built a completely static site using HAML, SASS and staticmatic. We thought it worked out so well that we’re doing the same for zetetic.net at the moment, and moving off of Radiant. We had a good run with Radiant, but upgrades have been extremely painful and it’s really easy to break the site. We like kicking it in a text editor and using Git to manage our static content, much nicer than having it all in a database. As for the blog itself, we’re building ourselves a fresh Rails 3 app to hone our chops for upcoming upgrades.
