“Site of the Week” award - from the programmers’ point of view (ProcessWire CMS)


We are very happe to share with you that the “DUAL” relaunch of our Deine Lakaien website was honored from the large developer community of the content management system ProcessWire* as “Site of the Week”, our second award after The Deine Lakaien website is built using ProcessWire, which is one of the reasons why the website is so pleasant to use and offers so much convenience in linking and preparing the internal content. We are of course very pleased to receive this award from the perspective of top international programmers.

Site of the week: Deine Lakaien

Our latest site of the week belongs to Deine Lakaien, which is a German band formed in 1985 by Ernst Horn and Alexander Veljanov.

After more than three decades the band is still going strong. In fact, they released their latest album just this year, describing it as “by far the most elaborate studio album” in the entire 35-year history of the band.

The Deine Lakaien website has been recently rebuilt and reimagined by the full service web agency TBA-Berlin. The site features a gorgeous design consisting of manily black and white graphic elements and overall dark tones combined with various, neatly laid out views: there’s a discography with publication year filters, a biography introducing the band and their lineup, news and concerts, and more. This site is the full package, with pretty much everything one might expect from a well-thought-out band site.

As for behind the scenes details, the front-end of the site is powered by the Uikit front-end framework, along with a number of JavaScript libraries, including Vegas background slideshows and Shariff social media sharing buttons. Third party modules used on this site include ProCache, the commercial, all-inclusive caching and minification solution.

Thanks to the folks at TBA-Berlin for sharing this project with us, and congratulations to Deine Lakaien for their newly revamped website. Great work from everyone involved!

*ProcessWire is a free Content Management System (CMS) and Framework (CMF). In our opinion, it is one of the most secure and reliable open source CMS in the industry. Moreover, it is intuitive and fun to use, both for developers and editors, and for website visitors.

Regardless of the size of a website (hundreds of thousands of pages are no problem), it is easy to program and use, powerful, consistent, predictable, efficient and therefore our top recommendation for websites that require, for example, special programming or sophisticated internal linking or need to allow changing editors to work easily, securely and without errors, such as seminar and school sites, associations, organizers, clinics, libraries.
