React & Twig
As an editorial platform, we wanted a server-side rendering application, with Craft CMS being built on a Yii framework this was all set up for us and used the templating language, Twig. For more complicated interactive parts of the site such as the main data-vis we decided to use React. Using it's `useReducer` hook to control complex state in situations such as the contact form along with the React Size me package to correctly position and size the chart and it's associated labels. During development both sets of components in their respective languages were developed using two Storybooks and styled with SASS, which enabled the sharing of styles, mixins and styling functions.
