Technology we use

Behind the scenes of every great and powerful web site resides a number of technologies. Some better placed than others.

Studio Crafted works with a number of core technologies and employs other tools as and when required.

We are typically a LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP) stack company, but can work with other variants to enhance projects e.g. database migrations and alternative data structures.

Vendor support is typically the 2 most recent versions for Microsoft and last 5 for most others like Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

Payment Service Providers for online commerce can be integrated to a customers preference but we have experience with Stripe and Paypal as a goto PSP.

  • Windows

  • Google
  • Git
  • HTML
  • CSS
  • JavaScript
  • Angular
