    The purpose was just to get a portfolio online, at least something that I can show too clients with some explanations :) When I will have time, I will add details about every projects. Most of them I did 100 % myself (design + code)

    You're saying the same thing that Drew Wilson in his book Execute: that it's more important to execute that using the new fancy tools.

    What’s Under the Hood

    Speaking of keeping it simple and re-using code, he did the same for the back-end. He personally likes to build a fully custom backend for each app that he makes, because he’s not a fan of MVC or using JSON templater libraries.

    He has a code-base that he’s been refining and re-using for a few different apps. It’s extraordinarily light-weight, uses JSON API by default, and is full of abstractions to make re-using it super easy. It’s built-in PHP, since that is what Drew is best at. His favorite language is Javascript by far, so he also really likes using Node.js. Space Box has a RESTful JSON API built-in PHP and stores the information in a MYSQL database, and uses AES encryption for any sensitive data. Space Box never stores or processes credit card information, another good reason to build on Stripe.

    All the JavaScript is custom, other than using jQuery. Writing custom JS is always best since you have full control over everything and you can always make things run faster when you don’t have additional overhead. A lot of people say to use frameworks or templaters, but Drew usually just tells them to get better at JavaScript.

    The service is hosted on MediaTemple. He setup a custom box and installed GIT, and uses GitHub for deploying code.
