bootzee.com is deployed on the Google Cloud Platform, this platform shares the same infrastructure that serves Google's Search, Adwords, Youtube, Google+ and Gmail products.
To get the site layout correct we prefer to hand crank the Html code, for this, a good text editor is required. We've chosen the popular Ace Editor and we've complimented it with the Source Code Pro font, enhancing it's visual appeal.
Once the layout is ready, the best way to add content is to use a Visual Editor, for this, we've chosen the well established TinyMCE. We've configured it in with "fullpage" mode, to allow complete pages to be edited.
We've incorporated the Less CSS pre-processor, for larger projects this is a great tool for creating styles in a more modular and maintainable way. All you have to do is switch over to Less mode when creating a CSS file and the compilation is taken care of automatically when you save.
For images we have a facility to upload to Google's Cloud Storage, from there the images are delivered through Google's global CDN and the same image can be dynamically reduced to a web-suitable size.
Everything is on-line, cloud hosted and ready to go. There is no downloading and unzipping of templates. There is no need to set up a development environment. There is no need to have complicated deployment scripts.
