We faced several challenges, namely the development of an application for a device of non-standard dimensions and resolution (Microsoft Surface Studio 2, with a 28-inch screen and a resolution of 4500x3000px). We had to come up with a mobile web fluid application that required many animation adjustments to work properly on many devices. With all of this, the apps had to work flawlessly when playing high-definition videos. The final product had to be delivered within three weeks.
Animations can be a great challenge if you need to adapt them to each device.
Due to the technical requirements for a fast user interface adapted to different devices, we used Netlify technology and Hugo framework. Thus, we were able to develop individually tailored solutions required by the client. We used a special platform for streaming content and adjusted the player to fit different screens. A special challenge was the animations, which required some non-standard behaviour.
