Challenge

The main challenge was remastering a legacy code. The app became hard to manage, scale, update, add new integrations and keep high-level productivity. The next issue we were faced with was fixing the low web app accessibility index on Google Lighthouse. This tool shows key indicators Google considers while giving a score to the web app, based on which it can be shown to the users, or lost on the button of search results. We aimed to make this score as close to the 100% as possible to make the app easier to promote. On top of that, we needed to find a perfect solution for content and advertising management, choosing CMS that meets all requirements.

Solution

Our experienced frontend team managed to successfully rewrite legacy code into Next.js. We offered this framework as the best alternative for React.js in this particular case. This allowed us to improve scoring in Google Lighthouse, which indicates web app productivity and accessibility. Also, TechMagic team improved the data management application layer. Tons of data from the app are handled more efficiently, implying overall app performance and scalability. We have chosen headless CMS for content management, which has led to better site indexation in search engines and content promotion.

01
From React.js to Next.js: legacy code remastering

We rewrote the app on Next.js to reduce the amount of efforts needed for future support, improvement and scaling. We chose Next.js because of its technical possibilities and fast growth. For Coin360 it was crucial to adopt a UI-oriented framework.

02
New section Integration

One of the key features of Coin360 are heatmaps. We have integrated a new heatmap for NFT with colour indication of volume, price, market capitalisation, and NFT collection.

03
Headless CMS - Strapi integration

TechMagic team chose and integrated Strapi - headless CMS - solution for content editorial team, which allows easy content access, creation and editing.

04
Application performance improvement

SSR and SPG from Next.js allow us to improve SEO accessibility of Coin360 web application. We fasten-up loading, and make it more accessible for Google crawlers - LCP. Now the web app is easier to find in the Internet.
