MeltBrands UK approached Toobler to build its price search engine, ShopBoxUk. ShopBoxUk was conceived as a price comparison engine that collected latest data from over a thousand online sources regarding all kinds of consumer products and compared prices for the end user. This is the equivalent of a user having to visit each of the over thousand websites and comparing prices individually.
To build a basic price search engine to provide the best price available for UK consumers shopping online. Pivot - ShopboxUK evolved into a multi-platform price comparison service and third party API provider.
Customizing Isotope jQuery Plugin.
ShopBoxUK wanted the most recent update to let people explore all their popular items in the store, their photos and their effects.
To navigate that amount of data properly, we needed something that would let visitors browse a large quantity of information at a glance, while being able to quickly get to material they’re interested in.
Shopbox API did not provide image size data and hence Toobler required to use an alternative for implementing “lazy loading”.
Toobler chose the excellent Isotope, a jQuery plugin by David DeSandro. It’s a great way of showing and re-ordering visual content at different sizes. It’s a great starting point, but we wanted it to do more.
Specifically, to minimize the amount that the content re-arranges itself when it’s resized. Here’s how it works.
Even though isotope can hold different-sized elements, it still uses a fixed order of objects to sort through them.
Isotope has Masonry’s layout logic built in, but in addition, it also has several other layout modes that can be used to dynamically position elements. You can even develop your own custom layout mode which we used.
Implementing XSRF protection in angularjs.
The guys at Toobler were very involved from the very first minute they started working on my project. Their commitment, knowledge and dedication helped me wrap it up in a spectacular fashion and needless to say, the result was a huge success.
