Ditching jQuery & buildling with ES6

During this project, I developed a couple of custom plugins in order to meet the requirements that Michael had on the site. Since I wanted this site to be jQuery free, I rewrote the bootstrap carousel plugin using ES6. In addition, I created a lightweight parallax and scroll reveal plugin. This was my third project using Barba.js which allowed for smooth page transitions and faster load times.

Improving the site and future projects

With what I know now, I would rewrite the site using gatsby.js and feed the content using a headless CMS. The main downside of this project was its inaccessibility to the client since adding content required JSON editing and compiling using a npm script.
