Wired.com Revamped

Here’s how Wired.com revamped its own website. It started last year with the under-the-radar project when they migrated 17 active blogs into one WordPress install. The redesign took the approach of focusing on the responsive and mobile first perspective. In addition, Wired.com also started using Amazon Web Services and its content delivery network, as well as using Varnish for its caching.

Wired.com stack looks like this. WordPress PHP, Stylus for CSS, Vanilla JavaScript and jQuery, Coming soon: React.js, and JSON API. For deployment, Wired.com uses Vagrant, Gulp for task automation, Git hooks, Linting (check out stylint written by our own Ross Patton), GitHub and Jenkins.
