WhoWhere

WhoWhere is a Local Search tool using the Yellow Pages API, the Yii2 Framework and Leaflet.js. Search results can be viewed in list format or on the full page map.

Working together with the creative director, we were able to completely overhaul the visual appearance and functionality of a legacy product. Starting with the original code, ported to Yii2, my responsibility was to refactor all front end code, achieve the desired design and implement leaflet.

Original

The original site had used Google Maps, however due to API limitations we decided to transition over to Leaflet.

Refresh

WhoWhere is currently awaiting Q.A review and the new production environment before it can be pushed live.

News Verticals

This project takes advantage of one core code base, collection of common styles and grunt config to create seven different verticals. Each site uses the same exact HTML structure, using only CSS to create visual differentiation.
