Hi, I started out as a webdev about 10 years ago, but since then I’ve been mostly coding win apps and microcontrollers.
So it’s been a while since I attempted a serious web project, a lot has changed.
I want to build a responsive, horizontal parallax website … with areas of dynamic content; posts, images, integrating social media, etc …
That I want to manage in a simple straightforward way.
My dilemma is;
Should I start to code my website (straight html5, css, js, …) learn everything along the way … which is fun,
drives me and suites my workflow. And fit in, or make my own system for content management later.
Or should I take a different route and start by learning a CMS package and build my templates/pages in there ?
I don’t even know if that’s possible or if the major CMS packages even allow for such (visual) customization.
So before I even started, I’m a bit stuck I’m not sure what approach is best and I want to avoid having to start over in the middle of the project.
And learning a CMS and how to make it’s templates/pages takes time.
Time I could be spending on building the actual website of course, which worries me a bit.
I could really use some advice please. Also on CMS packages best suited for it, if one suggest that route.
